Frankfurt am Main, April, 2010 – SoQuero GmbH, a subsidiary of Intershop Communications AG, has gotten off to a promising start in 2010. Following personnel restructuring, director of online marketing solutions Kai Wolfram became CEO at the beginning of the year and is driving forward development of the online marketing agency from its Frankfurt base.
The team was strengthened across all product segments, with experienced staff recruited to work in search engine advertising (SEA) and SEO consulting (search engine optimization). A total of nine new employees joined the agency.
Numerous customer contract extensions are testament to the company’s stability, while SoQuero also acquired 15 new customers. SEO consulting and product data marketing services were in particularly high demand.
