PitchEngine Founder to Use Social Media Chops to Sweep Mustache Contest

Jason Kintzler, founder of social media press release service PitchEngine, is hoping to mop up the competition with his Wyoming Horseshoe (I just made that up) in the Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American this year.

Kintzler and his furry friend are among 19 finalists in the award issued by the American Mustache Institute, also organizers of “Movember.”

The Institute, contest, and the month of moustachery  raise awareness for men’s cancers, with proceed going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG foundation.

The return of the ‘stache is the brainchild of several former Fleishman-Hillard execs who now make up Elasticity, a digital and social media agency based in Fleishman’s hometown of St. Louis.

Kintzler’s social chops, along with his poll position on the AMI site should help him defeat all comers.
