Frederick Vallaeys was one of the first 500 employees at Google where he helped grow the AdWords search marketing system and served as Google’s AdWords Evangelist, teaching advertisers about which Google products are best to support their marketing goals. He was a key player on several of the teams that made AdWords into the leading platform for search marketing, including the team that started the AdWords Editor and the one that acquired Urchin (now Google Analytics). He has contributed his technical expertise to several AdWords books including bestsellers like “AdWords for Dummies,” “Advanced Google AdWords,” and “Quality Score in High Definition” and he writes a monthly blog for searchengineland.com.
Puneet Vaghela (aka Pun) has worked in the digital marketing industry for over a decade, starting his career as an accidental SEO on the Supernanny Website, and teaching himself about all aspects of SEM whilst working across Omnicom Media Group (OMG) on a number of high profile clients, including Nissan, HSBC, Starbucks, Sony Entertainment and Volkswagen. Before becoming Head of Search at PHD Media in London, Pun won several awards for his out-of-the-box approach to SEM.
He left OMG in May 2019 to start his own consultancy company and has been working with Adzooma since June last year as their Head of Innovation, helping the development of the product and using his industry-wide experience to help them navigate the agency waters.
