Head of Search, Verve Search
James Finlayson is Head of Search at multi award-winning international SEO and Creative Content Marketing agency, Verve Search.
Formerly a lawyer, James took on SEO as a geeky hobby on the side. In his spare time, he'd rank his friends websites for competitive legal terms just to see if he could. Eventually, solicitors noticed and the rest is history. 7 years since, James has worked with SMEs through to multi-national household brands, advising on technical SEO and creative campaigns.
James has talked internationally at conferences including the Online Business Makeover, Fresh Business Thinking Live, the Digital Marketing Show, Search London, and Digitalization of Marketing (Oslo). He's also due to speak at BrightonSEO in April.
Verve Search specializes in international SEO & Content Marketing campaigns for medium and large businesses, currently servicing clients in 10 different countries. In 2015 Verve Search was named the Best Small SEO Agency in the UK, as well as the Best Small SEO Agency in Europe.
