Managing Director, SEM International
Michael Bonfils is the Worldwide Managing Director of SEM International, a division of International Media Management Corp. Since 1996, Michael was one of the early pioneers in the search engine industry, working in-house for a multinational firm prior to being in charge of Search Engine Strategy at Business.com in 2000-01.
In 2001, his International passion led him to opening up his own firm and an office in Asia after recognizing the need for U.S.-based online marketing agencies requiring an outsourced solution to provide services to their clients outside of the United States.
As the demand for his company’s services expanded into other countries and languages, he spread out further into Asia, Europe and eventually Latin America. Today, SEM International is a global co-operative of in-country search engine marketing agencies providing a one stop, centralized solution for Intl search engine and digital marketing solutions covering over 50 countries and over 40 languages.
