Pete Newman, Partnerships Director at PPC, SEO, Social and Mobile Marketing specialist, Found, has been named the industry’s Hotshot Rising Star at this year’s Performance Marketing Awards.
Pete Newman, who at just 25 was appointed Found’s Partnerships Director late last year, beat an impressive collection of some of the other brightest and most innovative minds in the industry to take this year’s coveted award.
Tina Judic, Managing Director of Found, says: “Widely recognised as an exceptional talent in the Search and Affiliate industries, Pete really deserved to win this award. Since the moment he joined Found, he has been a dedicated member of the team, driving significant business as well as utilising his entrepreneurial spirit to propose and support some innovative new initiatives for Found as a whole. However, he’s also one of the industry’s greatest advocates and actively supports its development, people training and business guidelines activity. He’s also one of the nicest people you could ever meet!”
On the same night, the Found team also beat a clutch of other high profile contenders to win Best Search Campaign and Best in Finance Publisher, plus was highly commended in the Best in Travel & Leisure Publisher category.
Tina adds: “The entire Found team lives and breathes Performance Marketing, and we’ve championed its very existence and usability across the PPC, SEO, Social and Mobile channels since inception. Winning these awards is therefore a massive thumbs-up from the industry to our dedication, thought-leadership and client delivery.”
Found won Best Search Campaign in recognition of its unique Magic Broad Match work alongside Starcom Mediavest for leading domestic airline, Flybe; Best in Finance Publisher for building on the Post Office’s brand loyalty and launching two new finance products into a highly competitive market; and a high commendation for creating exceptional stand-out for luxury country house hotel group, Hand Picked Hotels in the Best in Travel & Leisure Publisher category.
