Each year, SMX and Marin Software sponsor a challenge to find the brightest search marketing professional out there. While thousands compete, there can only be one winner, and that person is selected through a 20-question, timed test on topics that cover everything related to search―the history of search, ad bidding, quality score, SEO, Facebook, mobile, retargeting, and more.
We’re pleased to announce that this year’s winner is our own, Renato Del Vento. While sporting a Red Sox hat and a laid back attitude, Renato doesn’t exactly scream geek, but he is crazy smart. Renato sharpened his paid search chops through his work at Adlucent, managing search and PLA programs for leading retailers, selling everything from garters to orthopedic shoes.
And while there may not be Oscar-level fashion at SMX, you will find Renato sporting his favorite Adlucent t-shirt when he hits the stage to accept his award.
