CTO, Just Search
Neil Walker became part of Just Search when it was founded by Paul Yates in 2004, and has since seen the business grow from a company of only five people to its current size of 62. He began his career as an SEO manager where he was responsible for positioning Just Search as a leader in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). In 2006, Neil was promoted to head up the SEO department and took on the challenge of helping Just Search’s clients achieve top search engine results within their industry too.
After just one year and great success in the role, Neil was promoted to Chief Technical Officer (CTO) for the UK. As a specialist in online marketing strategies, including SEO, pay per click (PPC) and research and development, Neil became responsible for his team of 26 technicians, content editors and link builders, and developed technologies and the delivery of the company’s products.
In June 2010, Neil took a break from the company to become more involved in speaking engagements and to gain further insight into the online marketing world. He has since returned to Getupdated/Just Search in the capacity of Group CTO where he will continue to share his wealth of experience but will also inject his newfound knowledge across the group, which now includes UK, Ireland, France, Italy, and Sweden.
