Well there are many situations where the last word is to some pointy
hair manager who then has to report to somebody else probably even
more cluless than him. So the tech guy(s) has to go to this fellow who
will glance at what this is and think "can i be bragging about this" ?

think of something inspiring that says we're the guys who created 1
trillion dollars dollar market based on standards, some inspiring
graphic or logo or picture whatever. Be part of it. whatever else.
pointy hair takes the point and knows that he can show it to somebody
else in case
have the big members and some statements about why they're in
prominently features (e.g. fading, rotating) on the homepage.

it is probably appropriate to remove the google logo from the top
right (search), why endorsing a single web company.
As project manager myself, I meant to be concrete in my original
suggestion to use a professional.
