Search marketing luminary Andy Beal is on the move

Search marketing luminary Andy Beal is on the move. He announced today on his Marketing Pilgrim blog that he is stepping down as CEO of Fortune Interactive, the SEO firm he founded less than a year ago.

Some of you may remember the events of last summer, where Beal parted ways with WebSourced, in what he then described as a "philosophical differences" with his former employer. The situation at Fortune Interactive appears to be similar, in that Beal says there's a difference in the direction he'd like to take the company compared to where it's investors are headed.

Beal plans to do some SEM consulting while pondering his future, which may include starting a new company or joining an existing one.

So if anyone has any ideas for what Andy should do next, you might want to head out to San Jose for Search Engine Strategies, where he'll be speaking, drumming up new business, and considering what to do with his new-found freedom.
