Sosemo Hires Veteran Organic Search (SEO) Director Sean Arnell
NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2023 -— Sosemo LLC, an award-winning strategic media planning, buying and campaign management agency that specializes in marketing brands across the digital landscape, announces the hire of veteran Organic Search Director, Sean Arnell. Sean will be responsible for managing the SEO capability and growing the practice.
Prior to joining Sosemo, Arnell held Organic Search Director positions at Wavemaker US (GroupM) and Reprise Digital. He most recently worked as a Director of Growth at Graphite, headquartered in San Francisco. He holds a B.S. in Marketing and Information Technology from Monmouth University.
“Sosemo was founded as a search marketing agency. More than 10-years later, we still frequently champion search-centric marketing strategies. Mike Russo, our Client Services lead, and I both have extensive experience in SEO. Therefore, this position is near and dear to our hearts. We have high expectations for this position and set out to interview only the very best and brightest. We conducted an exhaustive talent search for this role. Surviving the rigor of our interview process was not for the faint of heart,” CEO Larry Gurreri said. “Sean came through with flying colors. We couldn’t be more excited to have him on our team. We expect great things from him and can’t wait to introduce him to our clients.”
“I’ve worked at some of the largest agencies in the world and have a proven track record of success within the organic search channel. At this point in my career, I had plenty of options for my next move. However, I wanted to join a company that fully embraced and supported the organic search channel from the top down, remained flexible within the service, and was absolutely committed to delivering the very best results, no matter what. Speaking with Larry and Mike and the rest of the team was very refreshing. Our goals and expectations for the capability are absolutely in alignment. I’ve very excited to hit the ground running. I believe we’re going to do great things together,” said Sean Arnell.
Growth plans for the SEO capability include bolstering the toolbox, expanding and elevating services above that of a standard “big agency” practice, and increased thought leadership coverage across industry publications and at conferences.
