Search Influence, an internet marketing company based in New Orleans, announced the hiring of Casey Duplantis as the manager of technology and development. Duplantis previously worked at Capital One as a senior manager and solution architect of card servicing.
"It's no secret that digital marketing is growing exponentially as brands compete to be found online by more customers," said Jeremy Brown, director of operations at Search Influence. "With Casey and other key leaders in place, along with our own proprietary software, we're better equipped to continually improve our online marketing techniques. This one-two punch makes Search Influence highly efficient and able to deliver results to our clients."
A native of south Louisiana, Duplantis started on Monday, April 25, 2016, bringing over 20 years of small business and enterprise IT experience in the healthcare, logistics and financial industries. At Nicholls State University, Duplantis studied both computer information systems and music education, and he continues to enjoy playing music in his free time.
As Search Influence continues to grow beyond its tenth anniversary, the company has taken on clients across the United States and Canada. While the ongoing training and development of employees is a high priority of Search Influence, recent external hires have demonstrated even a young company can benefit from years of outside experience in related fields. The manager of technology and development position allows the company to better serve clients with advanced technological solutions, both for client websites and internally developed software to enhance internal operations.
Optimistic about the opportunity to work with the rapidly growing business, Duplantis said, "I'm pleased to join an organization whose leadership promotes a culture of innovation and excellence. Our developers are delivering solutions to support a winning digital strategy that helps our customers achieve their goals in a continually changing business environment. It's an exciting time to be a part of SI."

More than a bed and breakfast, La Belle Esplanade offers a whimsical immersive experience that introduces guests to what it means to love New Orleans. From an exhibit of bayou squid captured in the Florida Avenue Canal, to what is reported to be Sandra Bullock's discarded air conditioner coils, to The Thing From Outer Space, La Belle Esplanade's lobby is an eccentric museum of locally scrounged curiosities. Every suite is likewise full of delightful surprises and details. Ceilings throughout the inn are twelve and half feet tall and every room is a different bouyant color.
Earning kudos in every review is the daily breakfast sourced from local vendors and farmers and the salon conversations and history lessons that unfold over the New Orleans fare and the chicory coffee. Neither Matthew nor Melanie had professional hospitality experience when they opened their inn in September 2012, but they enjoy serving as goodwill ambassadors for the city they call home.
The Historic New Orleans Collection is pleased to announce that its publication "Henry Howard: Louisiana's Architect," which was co-published by the Princeton Architectural Press, has received the Victorian Society in America's Henry-Russell Hitchcock Award.
This honor reflects author and photographer Robert S. Brantley's decades-long effort to document the work of one of Louisiana's most prolific architects of the 19th century with the help of his late wife, Jan White Brantley, and the late Victor McGee, a direct descendant of the book's subject. The volume provides a comprehensive survey of Howard's career, lavishly illustrated with photographs both new and historical, and interspersed with archival drawings and plans.
"I am grateful for all the hard work and astuteness of The Collection's editors and for the untiring effort and knowledge of the editors of Princeton Architectural Press, who have helped make this work on Henry Howard a success," said Brantley. "Mostly, I am forever in the debt of my beloved wife, Jan, for her unwavering support and talents in both research and photography and to my friend Victor McGee for keeping the memory of Henry Howard alive and for all his insightful thoughts and work in the writing of this book. Lastly, to Henry Howard, without whose genius this work would not need to exist."
Given annually, the Henry-Russell Hitchcock Award is one of three book awards that the Victorian Society in America (VSA) presents to works "that best advance an understanding or appreciation of the decorative arts or architecture of the 19th century." This particular prize honors works "centered on architecture or the decorative arts," including biographies of designers or architects.
"We are thrilled to see Howard's contribution to 19th-century architecture acknowledged by such a significant organization as the Victorian Society in America," said Dorothy Ball, senior editor at THNOC who headed the project, "We congratulate Robert Brantley, along with Jan and Victor McGee, for the phenomenal effort they expended in bringing this unsung story to light."
The Victorian Society in America, which has a sister organization in the United Kingdom, was founded in 1966 and is committed to historic preservation and the protection, understanding, education and enjoyment of 19th-century heritage. The society's 15 chapters across the country host a wide range of local events and lectures that help promote its enrichment and publication work. "Old House Journal" identified the founding of the society as one of the 25 most significant milestones in American preservation.
The award will be presented at The Victorian Society in America's annual meeting this year on April 30 in Los Angeles.
