NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Horn Group, Inc., a top digital communications agency, today announced the promotion of Ben Billingsley to Partner. Reporting to Sabrina Horn, agency founder and CEO, Ben is responsible for leading and managing all aspects of the firm's New York office. Ben joined Horn Group's New York office in 2006 as Vice President and has since established the agency's leadership in the digital media sector.

In his time at Horn Group, Ben has launched numerous emerging technology companies and established them as leaders in online advertising, social marketing and digital publishing. He specializes in working with venture-backed companies -- such as Right Media, Adify, Associated Content, Answers.com, Auditude and Demdex -- through their acquisitions and mergers.
