MWW PR Using Shady Tactics
Does MWW PR Group use 1995 shady digital media techniques? Apparently, the answer is yes. MWW don’t you folks do social media? Do you have Google alerts with your company’s name on it? Did you miss our article entitled “Neil Dhillon of MWWPR: 20 Year Old Assault Arrest & Cheap SEO Tactics”?
Why do we ask? Well, because we just came across this brand new spammy web post – where we learned that the head of MWW PR’s Washington, DC office “…is a global communications as well as public affairs professional whose job has graced every boardroom of Fortune 500 companies and wings of White House.”
Every boardroom of Fortune 500 companies? Every single one? Rather boastful for Neil Dhillon, no? These spammy blog posts continue in an attempt to clean-up a 20 year old crime which was committed – and its not a good representation for a leading PR firm who claims to be an expert on all things Public Relations – which these days includes online reputation. MWWPR: Stop the spam for SEO.

Doug appointed his managing director, Julie Batliner, to take over his role as President. Batliner, who worked at Spong PR for 10 years, looks forward to leading the company but laments Doug’s decision to leave. She praised his industry knowledge and his talent for predicting where the industry was going.
Despite ending his work relationship with the company, Doug insists that he is not retiring. Instead, he hopes to use his newfound flexibility to work on other things he has in store.
