With plans for our summer networking event in progress, a host of new clients under our belt, and winning Best Finance Publisher at this month’s a4u Awards, Azam Marketing has been a hive of activity of late, and so we’re delighted to welcome a new pair of hands to our fast-expanding SEM team in the form of new Search Marketing Manager, Ovie Oba!

We selected Ovie after going through job applications from over 500 search marketers and interviewing the 50 best ones, so we’d like to think he is the Lionel Messi of search.

Ovie brings a wealth of digital marketing experience having managed profitable PPC campaigns for top level clients, and rounded skills in web design, search engine optimisation, campaign analysis and retargeting.

His most recent position was with online agency Attinger Jack Interactive Ltd, where he managed a number of high profile PPC accounts as well as directing a team of web developers.

With such an impressive skill set, we know that Ovie will be a real asset to our team and extend a warm welcome!

Work skills and experience aside, I caught up with Ovie to ask him to reveal more about what makes him tick!
