History

352 Media Group was started in 1997 as "SpyderWeb Page Creation" by Geoff Wilson, Jesse Murse, and Brian Keller. The company started as a part-time venture at the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity house at the University of Florida[5]. In 1999, Geoff Wilson and Jesse Murse decided to scale back their college classes and focus on growing the company. Brian Keller left the company at that time, while Jason Shindler (CIO) and Peter VanRysdam (Vice President of Sales and Marketing) joined and became co-owners. The group changed the name of the company to "Silverscape Technologies"[6]. Silverscape Technologies expanded rapidly in 2000 and 2001 and began to attract national clients including Pizza Hut.

In November 2002, Silverscape Technologies changed its name to "352 Media Group" and in 2003, began establishing satellite offices with their first in Atlanta, Georgia[7]. Since the inception of the Atlanta office, 352 has added major clients in the Atlanta area, including General Electric, Heil Trailer, Earthlink, Biolabs and Clark Atlanta University[8]. Most recently, they have established sales offices in Ann Arbor, [9] Tampa, [10] Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Houston[11].
