Andrew Bartolotta

Director of Digital Media, cityCURRENT

Andrew Bartolotta is a digital media professional who has connected passion with purpose through technology for several years. As Director of Digital Media for cityCURRENT and Lipscomb & Pitts Insurance, LLC, he assists with various events and efforts to advance the corporate activation landscape and coordinate marketing and research projects for the company.

Through cityCURRENT, he helps host over 180 events each year as various size businesses provide forces and funds so Andrew and his team can power the good across the Mid-South through events, media, and philanthropy.

Equipped with both design and marketing skills, Andrew uses his expansive network to empower community problem solvers to ignite change through digital media. During his college years, he volunteered over 1,000 hours of pro-bono skills based work to local small businesses and nonprofits to expand their visual communications.

Andrew has used that experience to bolster impact through various organizations including Leadership Memphis, Southaven Chamber of Commerce, The Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi, American Cancer Society and his role as previous Board Chair for Let's Innovate Through Education and Volunteer Mid-South, marketing chair for Hernando-DeSoto Habitat for Humanity, and more.

In 2014, Andrew was invited to the White House twice as a digital media innovator by the Office of Digital Strategy to learn from their team and collaborate with the office on expanding existing content to new digital platforms.

Since then, he has spoken at various organizations and conferences, including the Points of Light Conference on Volunteering and Service, to strengthen the awareness of social good by way of social media. He regularly partners with organizations like the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi to host workshops on digital media and has been able to impact over 185 nonprofit organizations; helping them effectively share their mission and impact.

In 2021, Andrew received the 2020 Mississippi GIVE Award for Outstanding Service in the Promotion of Volunteering & Community.

Charles Thiede

CEO and Co-Founder, Zapnito Ltd.

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.
