By joining Hispanicize Wire, Gato reunites with the former executive management group that together with him in 2008 sold Hispanic PR Wire to PR Newswire for $5.5 million. With the addition of Gato, the Hispanicize Wire management team now features Hispanic wire service veterans Manny Ruiz, Yosmay Valdivia, Cristy Clavijo-Kish, Katherine Johnson and Danny Correa.
"Bill brings an amazing set of digital marketing skills, talent and proven leadership that on the eve of several major Hispanicize Wire service innovations will guide the company to its next evolutionary step," said Ruiz, who effective immediately turns the CEO reigns to Gato and will now serve as the company's chairman and senior partner. "Hispanicize Wire clients can expect to see Bill's stamp of excellence and service in everything that we're doing and are about to announce."
"In an inbound marketing landscape now dominated by search, social media, online video and mobile technology, the traditional wires have not kept up with the needs of the booming U.S. Hispanic market," Gato said. "We're intent on – once again – revolutionizing the Latino wire and helping brands and businesses of all sizes tell their stories to the Latino market in the most innovative and effective ways."
