We’ve received confirmation that Michael Miller, who somehow mysteriously disappeared from the MRM ranks about two months ago, has joined the recently formed SolutionSet MediaWhiz partnership as its CMO.

Anyhow, Miller has been with MRM for well over three years and spent nearly four prior to that as senior partner, director of business development at G2. We’re digging into this and will let you know if we find out anything more.
