PLAINSBORO, N.J. (March 19 , 2014)– Digital Brand Expressions (DBE) announced today that Marc Engelsman, Director of Client Strategy and Analytics, has been elected to the board of SEMPO, the largest nonprofit trade organization in the world serving the search and digital marketing industry and marketing professionals in it.”We’re happy to see Marc Engelsman recognized by the SEMPO members for his contributions to the organization and are excited, as members ourselves, to see how Marc’s strategic and analytics expertise will benefit SEMPO with him as a member of the board,” says Veronica Fielding, president of Digital Brand Expressions.

Marc has been an active member in SEMPO ever since he joined Digital Brand Expressions more than seven years ago. He first served on the Marketing Committee and helped lead the update of marketing/member materials. Then he joined the Research Committee and took over the lead role for SEMPO’s Annual State of Search Survey – establishing the partnership with Econsultancy and greatly expanding participation by over 200% in his first year. In 2013, Marc continued evolving the State of Search format by splitting it into two separate surveys – strategic and tactical – while also expanding on capturing agencies’ and advertisers’ perceptions on the role of search as part of an integrated digital marketing mix.

In addition to his search and digital marketing expertise, Marc has 25 years of experience in marketing and advertising with New York City agencies across a wide range of clients in the consumer, B2B, and not-for-profit sectors. He is a frequent speaker at search and broader marketing conferences including SMX, SES/ClickZ, OMS, Marketing Profs, and Direct Marketing Association, among others. He most recently represented SEMPO at a panel presentation of SEMPO’s Salary Survey Report at SES/ClickZ Chicago in November 2013.
