Mike Grehan Joins Bruce Clay Inc.

Mike Grehan has joined Bruce Clay Inc. as its VP of international business development. According to Lisa Barone, his role will include strategy, servicing key accounts, and international training:

In his new role as VP of International Business Development, Mike will routinely be let out of the storage closet, but only if he promises to help us further develop and implement the company's global growth strategy, and help with client services on key accounts. We're also going to make him assist Bruce in teaching our international SEO training class in Australia, South Africa, the UK and Europe to train search marketers world-wide. Mike has a lot of knowledge and we think he should share it.

Many SEW readers will recognize Mike from his frequent speaking appearances at SES and other industry events (he'll be in Toronto and Miami), or from his long-running ClickZ column on search.

Mike shares his thoughts on his Mike Grehan Says... blog:

Bruce Clay already has a presence in the UK as well as South Africa and Australia. I'll be supporting him in strengthening the brand and training in those territories, as well as opening in at least three new geographical territories this year. So, it looks like my office, once again, will be mainly on a Boeing 777!

Congratulations to both Mike and the Bruce Clay team.
