NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 26, 2011) - PM Digital (www.pmdigital.com), a New York-based online marketing agency that was named Internet Retailer's Fastest Growing SEM Agency of 2010, today announced the addition of Richard Chavez -- previously the Director of SEO at iCrossing -- as Senior Director of SEO and John Iozzia -- previously a Senior Business Development Executive at Performics -- as Vice President of Business Development. Both are newly-created positions.

"2010 was a fantastic year for our clients," said Chris Paradysz, CEO of PM Digital, "and we are continuing to reach ahead and invest ahead of their needs. At PM Digital, expanding and deepening our talent base is always top priority. Both Richard and John bring unique skills and perspectives, and our clients will benefit. Both will enable us to increase our offerings across additional, high-priority verticals."

Chavez will be responsible for leading PM Digital's search engine optimization team, including driving client strategy for new and existing accounts, as well as overall account management. He brings more than 10 years of experience in developing search strategies for Fortune 500 clients in the financial services, retail, publishing, consumer package goods and pharmaceutical sectors. Chavez's work at iCrossing helped the agency win the 2009 Forrester Wave report's "Best in SEO" award.

"PM Digital is a growing and very smart company with great clients," said Chavez. "Their financial strength, executive leadership and career growth potential were all major factors in my wanting to join their team."

Iozzia will concentrate on expanding PM Digital's footprint into areas including consumer brands, travel/hospitality, and education.

"Having been in the interactive agency space for many years," said Iozzia, "I've come to accept that employee and client turnover are commonplace. I was especially attracted to PM Digital once I learned that the client retention rate since 2002 is in the high 90 percentile, and employee tenure is even greater."

A graduate of New Jersey Institute of Technology, Iozzia resides in Emerson, New Jersey.
