Celebrating the Searchies: The Top 20 Search Specialists in the UK

What better way to celebrate 20 years of Search than celebrating those who make it happen day to day.  

To mark the 20th Anniversary of Google Search – last week we held a special event to honour the work of the best and brightest talent in Search. We wanted to recognise the paid search marketing experts behind the magic and science of search – known to us as the “Searchies”. Our Top 20 Searchies were chosen by peer nomination in the industry.

“Search wouldn’t be nearly as powerful without the brilliant minds of Searchies"

– Ronan Harris, Vice President & MD UK & Ireland at Google

Ronan Harris, Vice President & MD UK & Ireland at Google said: “Twenty years on from the birth of Google Search, life without it is unimaginable for consumers and businesses. It continues to play a vital role in connecting brands with their audiences and driving tangible business growth.

“The unsung heroes behind the success of Google Ads are the search strategists across the industry whose expertise and hard work demonstrates how valuable search can be for businesses when used to its full potential. Search wouldn’t be nearly as powerful without the brilliant minds of Searchies who know how to use the program to drive business and advertising growth. We celebrate those people and the huge contribution they make to the UK advertising and marketing industries.”
