Ian is the founder and CEO of global search engine marketing agency Search Laboratory. For the last nine years his unique scientific and mathematical approach to search engine optimization and pay-per-click advertising has seen him grow Search Laboratory from a two-man operation to today employing over 180 in-house search specialists and linguists. Ian, who has a first class degree in Maths and an MSc in Internet Technologies, began his career in programming, specializing in developing internet based systems. This led to him being appointed as CTO for one of the world’s largest web localization companies. Here he helped companies such as British Airways, IBM and HSBC tap into new overseas markets online. During his time as CTO Ian witnessed many large organizations trying to build search marketing campaigns in multiple languages - either by translating keywords or by using a student intern. Ian wanted to fill the gap in the market for a dedicated multilingual search engine marketing service and subsequently created Search Laboratory in 2005. Search Laboratory manages global SEO and PPC campaigns for clients including Viking, 02, Ted Baker, VisitBritain, BT Group, Oasis and Superdry.
