SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 10, 2013) -
Russ Mann, CEO and founder of San Diego-based Covario Inc., the world's leading independent search marketing firm and -- through its Rio SEO software division -- the top SEO and social marketing technology provider. Covario was included among the JMP Hot 100 software firms in 2012 for the third year in a row.
Mann was named to the Who's Who of Digital and Search by BtoB magazine in 2012 and 2011. He was also selected as an Entrepreneur of the Year for the San Diego region in the 2010 Ernst & Young competition.
Mann will be a featured speaker at the 12th annual JMP Securities Research Conference in San Francisco, which brings fast-growth companies together with institutional investors.
Mann will address the key objectives that led Covario to create the Rio SEO software brand last year followed by the rapid acquisitions and integration of Top Local Search and the Meteor Solutions social marketing technology firm. He will also discuss what led Rio SEO to be named "the only leader" in the 2012 Forrester Research Wave of SEO Platforms.
Executives from 150-plus public companies in technology, healthcare, financial services and real estate, along with more than 50 privately-held companies in the technology sector, will be presenting their strategies and exchanging perspectives with the nation's top asset managers.
