Portent CEO Ian Lurie has been named to the 2012-2014 Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization (SEMPO) Board of Directors.
“I’m excited to be on the board with such a great group of search marketers,” Lurie said. “SEMPO’s done some great things for our industry, and I know we’ll be able to grow the organization.”
Lurie joins the 13-person SEMPO Board that will take office on March 22, heralded by outgoing chairman Jeff Pruitt for its “combination of talent, vision and energy.”
Building a SEMPO presence in the city of Seattle, where Portent is located, is something Lurie is excited about. “Seattle has a thriving search marketing industry, so establishing a SEMPO chapter in this city will be great for this community,” he said.
Congratulations to Ian, and to all those who were elected!
