|Includes: East Coast Diversified Corp. (ECDC)

East Coast Diversified, a holding company with a portfolio of technology companies, announced Meredith Pruden as the company's senior communications and media relations manager, effective immediately. Her appointment follows and is complementary to the company's recently completed development and pending launches of StudentConnect, a student safety technology, and Vir2o, a new social engagement platform currently in beta testing.

Pruden has nearly 20 years of creative services experience, as well as start-up expertise. Pruden previously worked at MER-itocracy Creative Inc., a consulting agency where she served as founder and CEO.

Pruden also is a content specialist with a track record of team leadership to produce award-winning, high impact campaigns in both the traditional print and interactive spaces. The new communications manager is backed by a Master of Arts in communication.

"Meredith brings a wealth of experience to our organization and management team at the most crucial time," ECDC CEO Kayode Aladesuyi stated in the press release. "We are moving out of the development phase of our business to full commercial deployment for all four divisions of the company. We could not have found a better person to help deliver our message to the market."

In her new role with ECDC, Pruden will leverage her knowledge and experience to help strategically position ECDC and its subsidiaries in the global marketplace and establish integral relationships with global media.

"As an early adopter and technophile, I am so excited to work with the ECDC team, its innovative technology and corporate vision," Pruden said. "As a longtime consultant, I've worked with a variety of companies - from startups and small businesses to industry leaders - throughout my career, but it's a truly rare occurrence to be able to combine my rather unique background and skill set into one role. I'm looking forward to leveraging my creative, brand building, marketing, social media and copywriting experience to grow ECDC and its divisions."
