We are VERY excited to introduce you to our new team below! When we began the initial search for people with whom to expand our business, we were blown away–receiving responses from 8 states and 5 other countries. And, the talent was STRONG, making the decisions difficult. But, what a problem to have, right?!? So, working through the process of bringing on these new team members to provide podcast services to our clients has been one that we have been VERY eager to share with you.
But, first, we want to take a moment to congratulate one of our first team members, Jorge, on his promotion to Lead Production Assistant!
Since joining the team last August to handle Special Projects, Jorge has made a quite the impact on the business. And, in doing so, he has seen growth within in his position not once, but now TWICE. We are so happy to see Jorge being promoted into the role of Lead Production Assistant. We know we owe so much of Flint Stone Media’s ability to grow in recent months to his contributions to the the team so far. And, as we bring on all the great new team members below, this expansion of his role will prove invaluable.

Now the Founder/CEO of Florida Podcast Network, Organizer of the Palm Beach Podcasters, Production Manager for the Horse Radio Network, Director of The Wedding Biz Network, and Instructor for the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, Jaime is eager to continue to create strong partnerships for the brand.
But, more than anything, Jaime is most looking forward to working with the new team members and creating great work for their clients!
“When I first started Flint Stone Media, the dream was all about my son and me. I wanted to create something that left a legacy for him and an impact for both my clients and on my home state of Florida. But, what has began to materialize since this summer was the realization that the dream could reach beyond my household. I knew that there was potential for me to grow Flint Stone Media and Florida Podcast Network to create opportunities for others as well; and, that has been what I’ve been striving extra hard to achieve over these last few months. And, I couldn’t be more proud of the blessing I’ve received in these individuals coming on board for this next era. This phase of life that Flint Stone Media is moving into is simply going to be so fulfilling on many levels!”
