Media Alert: San Diego Entrepreneur of the Year, Covario CEO Russ Mann, Shares Insights Into Creative Corporate Social Responsibility at Woodward Animal Center Event

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 29, 2011) -

Covario CEO Russ Mann
will be the featured speaker on the topic of "Creative Corporate Responsibility in the Internet Age" at a Helen Woodward Animal Center luncheon today at The University Club in San Diego. Mann was named a 2010 "Entrepreneur of the Year" in the San Diego region in the annual Ernst and Young award competition.

The locally based firm he founded made the INC. 500 list of America's fastest-growing private companies two years in a row, and was one of San Diego's fastest growing companies over the same time frame. The firm also made the Software 500 ranking of the nation's largest software firms, and was just ranked by Advertising Age magazine among the Top 20 Search Marketing Agencies. Covario was one of only nine firms selected for the 2011 Forrester Research Wave of the nation's leading Search Marketing Agencies.

Mann is passionate about the balance between corporate social responsibility and shareholder and constituent value. From the vantage point of a fast-growing, venture-backed startup, he will discuss how a responsible company can add significant value to the environment, to the communities and to the nonprofit organizations it supports by going beyond pure financial donations.

Specifically, he will address Covario's unique approach to supporting the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Helen Woodward Center and the Arizona Humane Society, since he and Covario are passionate in the belief that "there is no search more important than the search for a lost child or a home for a neglected animal."

He will also discuss environmental programs like "e-Covario" and the company's tree planting initiative on behalf of clients and employees.

Today, Friday, April 29,
11:30 a.m. PST

The University Club
, 750 B Street, San Diego
