Clixo Leadership

Unlike most agencies, we don’t have any low-level staff, so you don’t have to settle for an entry-level person managing your accounts on a daily basis.

You pay for an expert, and that’s what you deserve. Your account manager will be a seasoned online advertising expert. They will be your primary contact that meets with you, craft strategies & executes the plan with precision. It’s our recipe for success.

Meet the SEM leaders that will take you to the next level.

I have been doing online marketing for 14 years beginning with SEO in the days of Yahoo, Overture, Ask Jeeves, etc. I staked my claim in the industry working for one of the original “SEO and website submission” companies – Submitawebsite.com. Since those days, I have managed many high profile accounts, ran entire SEM departments and, built and sold companies. This experience gives me a unique and holistic take on online marketing.

Director of Client Services

My career in digital marketing started with Clixo in 2009. Back in those days, Adwords was the main game in town, attribution-modeling wasn’t a buzzword and social advertising was nascent. Needless to say, online advertising has evolved significantly since then and the rate of change is only accelerating. I embrace the constant change because it keeps everyone on their toes and creates new opportunities. I’m a data nerd who enjoys solving complex business challenges. When I’m not working I love spending time with my wife & daughter, climbing, skiing, traveling, playing music and cooking.
