As Vice President of Global Markets, Michael's role is to internationalize all existing services and products, logistic marketing support, and business development for global offices, as well as being the lead in providing prospective clients with multinational search marketing services.
Since 1996, Michael has helped pioneer best practices in global search engine marketing and innovations in technology advertising. After selling his first agency in 2004, he launched SEM International in Hong Kong, which grew quickly and eventually expanded into Japan, Korea, Russia, Europe, and Latin America. By 2009, it turned into one of the largest global alliances of international online marketing service firms. In 2013, SEM International was acquired by its business partners and a few of its network agencies.
Michael also contributes as an expert on Internet marketing technology and trends in national publications, and speaks at events around the world, such as Search Engine Watch, SES, ISS/SMX, and Pubcon to name a few.
