Apogee Search Expands Into Canadian Market

Top U.S. Search Marketing Firm Announces Plans for Toronto Office

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Apogee Search, one of the top ten independent search engine marketing firms in North America, announced plans to expand their operations to Toronto, Canada. Apogee Search currently has a strong partnership with several Canada-based clients as well as experience in targeting the Canadian marketplace with successful search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns.

"Opening a local office in Toronto will allow us to connect better with our existing and future Canadian clients, as well as Canadian businesses and consumers," says Brian Combs, senior vice president of Apogee Search.

Apogee Search has consistently found success in penetrating emerging regional markets and growing industrial segments. The Austin-based company opened offices in San Francisco in January and Chicago in April of this year, and those offices are already exceeding revenue and profitability expectations. The September 2008 opening of the Toronto office is the next stage in expanding to meet the needs and expectations of Apogee Search's diverse client geography.

Apogee Search understands the importance of local interaction and that different markets and industries require differing approaches. An experienced leader in the competitive landscape of SEO and PPC in Canada, Apogee's current Canadian client base covers multiple vertical markets including e-learning, healthcare products and marketing services. With its Q3 office expansion in Toronto, Apogee Search will execute more accurate research initiatives and respond ever-more quickly to changes in the Canadian marketplace. Apogee Search has experienced similar success since expanding to San Francisco and Chicago. The Toronto office will focus on strengthening the relationship with businesses and consumers in Canada.

Apogee Search is excited to take this step and to return to the birth nation of Founder, President and CEO, William Leake. "I believe that opening a Toronto office is an important step in the growth of Apogee Search. I know firsthand that the Canadian market is a dynamic one that requires expert marketing strategies -- strategies that Apogee Search can deliver," says Mr. Leake. "I left Canada as a child, kicking and screaming. I'm always pleased and proud to return to the place I was born (especially during the Texas summer!)"
