Kevin Ryan has long been a personal friend, a sometimes competitor (as iMedia’s search editor), a peerless public speaker, and an expert in all things interactive marketing related, particularly when it comes to search. Kevin’s past roles include VP interactive media for the Interpublic Group’s agency Wahlstrom Interactive, and as founder/CEO of Kinetic Results. Kevin also founded consultancy Motivity Marketing and has worked for Did-It and DoubleClick.
Now, I’m delighted to announce Kevin Ryan is a colleague of ours.
Kevin joined us this week as the new chair of our Search Engine Strategies conference and will work with me on ClickZ’s sister site, SearchEngineWatch.com. Here’s the formal announcement, as well as a few words from Kevin on his new role.
