LONDON, 24 November, 2006 - Steak Media today announces the appointment of Joy Remuzzi as Marketing Director. Reporting directly to Tony Samios, COO, and Oliver Bishop, CEO, this new role will be key in helping the company in its expansion from a specialist search agency into a full service online media agency.

“Clients now expect agencies to be more than simply search specialists, and Joy’s extensive experience in the Internet arena will greatly benefit in promoting Steak’s services to our core UK market,” says Bishop. “Her appointment is just the first of many we will make as we grow our expertise in digital media throughout 2007 and beyond.”

Ms. Remuzzi, formerly business development and marketing manager at SEM consultancy Greenlight Search Marketing, has over ten-plus years in international publicity and marketing, honed at both UK and US firms.

An American, Ms. Remuzzi came to the UK in 2002 to be the WorldCom Account Manager at its London-based web development agency. She had spent the three previous years on the client side, as Global Web Marketing Manager for UUNET/WorldCom, where she spearheaded the implementation of a multilingual, global CMS (content management system) for the public corporate web site, and then developed online marketing strategies to leverage the system’s flexibility. Prior to that she was a member of the Investor Relations team that took a pan-European telecoms start-up through a successful initial public offering (IPO) in 1999.

Commenting on her appointment, Ms. Remuzzi said: “I’ve always promoted integrated marketing strategies throughout my career, so am thrilled to be able to bring my experience to Steak Media at this very exciting period of its development. I completely appreciate clients’ growing interest in combining SEM with other digital strategies: there are tremendous advantages to consolidating your online activities under one roof—particularly when working with an agency like Steak, where the founders have not only pioneered paid search in Europe, but also have broad industry experience in media planning and buying and other e-marketing services.”
