My excitement at having him on board extends beyond his notoriety in the industry; Todd was one of the first people I really connected with when I entered the SEO field. I’m bringing on a top talent in the industry but also a friend.

Todd Friesen, a pioneer in the field of SEO, has held senior positions at some of the world’s largest agencies including Performics, Position Technologies and Range Online Media. Co-founder Kris Roadruck elaborates: “Todd brings with him a wealth of talent and experience, skills that will prove critical in our current stage of growth. My excitement at having him on board extends beyond his notoriety in the industry; Todd was one of the first people I really connected with when I entered the SEO field. I’m bringing on a top talent in the industry but also a friend.”
“I’m looking forward to working closely with Kris and the rest of the Search Fanatics team to build the company's processes for search marketing as well as overseeing client acquisition and account management,” said Friesen. “The opportunity for growth in this market continues to be phenomenal.”
Friesen has built an expert reputation in the search industry over the past decade, speaking regularly at nearly every major conference including Pubcon, SEOmoz’s MozCon, Seach Marketing Expo, Shop.org, Dreamforce and Search Engine Strategies as well as contributing at top search publications such as SearchEngineLand.com and MediaPost’s Search Insider.
Search Fanatics, founded mid-2011 by stepbrothers Kris Roadruck and Kris Reeves, has been quietly gaining serious momentum in the search space. “Until a week ago we didn’t even have a website. We were receiving so much referral business and white-label work from other agencies that we just had no need for that sales-funnel. To say that we’ve been growing would be an understatement. We’ve seen month- over-month growth of 20-40% for 6 months running," Roadruck commented.
"Now as we begin to branch outside of consulting to include software development and content monetization, having someone with the necessary skills and experience to start taking over a portion of the consulting workload is of paramount importance. Bringing Todd on board is a huge step for us," he added.
