People often ask where the name SAVOYPR came from. "I was trying to come up with a name for a PR business that telegraphed PR, and if you've ever tried to purchase a URL these days, you know how tough it is," she explains. "Words like hype, pitch, strategic, etc. - forget it! Why didn't I use my own name? Because I never thought anyone would spell Betsyann Faiella intuitively. After a few days of frustration, I realized I was living on the historic former site of the Savoy Ballroom, a mecca of music, dance and fun that opened in Harlem in 1926. I thought, 'that's good for me!'" Done.
