Optimising's newest recruit, Nathan. We're growing pretty quickly here at Optimising, so we've put a lot of effort into finding the right people & we think we've hit the jackpot with Nathan, our new Business Development Manager. Nath brings an international flavour to the group, crossing the Tasman from New Zealand.

Nathan comes from a strong sales background at a top-tier digital agency and his list of credentials is impressive. He worked with global media juggernaut Shazaam in the UK, managed muti-national corporate SEO & PPC campaigns across the UK, NZ & Australia and managed digital marketing campaigns both in-house and agency. 

Yeah, we were impressed too. He's an office table tennis champion, which can only show he has a killer competitive edge, even when it comes to something as pointless as table tennis.

Nathan has been a serious globetrotter in his youth; working, travelling and picking up skills you can only get from life experience, like table tennis skills, which makes him a bit like a Kiwi Forrest Gump but with better social skills. He has settled in Melbourne because let's face it, the coffee is way better here. 

Nathan knows that various digital marketing tactics must all tie in together, with SEO, PPC, social media, web design and the rest working together toward a common goal with a cohesive strategic approach. His international experience helps Optimising apply world class marketing approaches for local clients' needs. He's a true believer in making sure his clients get a return on their investment in SEO.
