SearchMarketMe Introduces New CEO with Global Mindset to Lead Company Growth Worldwide

Seattle, WA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 06, 2011

As the worldwide shift to online marketing continues at a rapid pace, SearchMarketMe recently introduced its new CEO, S. Boyd Karren, as a leader with a global mindset.

“The company continues to field inquiries and training requests from individuals around the world, and it was clear that SearchMarketMe needed a leader with both advanced education and experience in international business as well as working with diverse cultures,” said Jenny Dibble, founder of SearchMarketMe. “Boyd brings a wealth of understanding, experience and professional contacts from around the world. He was clearly the right person to purchase the company and take it to the next level.”

Mr. Karren recently earned a Master’s degree in Global Management from the prestigious Thunderbird School of Global Management, in addition to an MBA earned from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. This rigorous education, his experience living and studying abroad, and his previous entrepreneurial ventures, have combined to provide Mr. Karren with a solid foundation for leading SearchMarketMe into additional international markets and building strong, collaborative networks of Agency Owners in each country of operation.

“I was fortunate to belong to an excellent peer group of advertising agency owners during my first business ownership experience,” said Mr. Karren “and benefitted greatly from the collaboration and guidance the group provided to each member. My goal is to replicate the advantages of that type of network, and to establish similar ‘support groups’ for our Agency Owners in individual country markets.”

Mr. Karren’s vision for creating jobs, prosperity and wealth worldwide through entrepreneurship matches well with SearchMarketMe’s company philosophy of promoting entrepreneurship. “Entrepreneurs make the world turn,” said Karren. “I am an entrepreneur, and am naturally drawn to other entrepreneurs, and I absolutely love working with other entrepreneurs as they pursue their dreams.”

SearchMarketMe is a Seattle-based training and support organization that assists entrepreneurs in launching and operating independently-branded online marketing agencies around the world. Opened in 2007, the company’s 96 Agency Owners are found throughout the United States, Canada, and Qatar.

“The smartest entrepreneurs look for established best practices and strong support groups in order to avoid the many mistakes so common to new businesses. SearchMarketMe provides both.” said Mr. Karren. “There's no need to re-invent the wheel. The infrastructure needed for individual success in the online marketing space is in place and operating successfully at SearchMarketMe.”
