Covario Named 2012 Search Agency of the Year

OMMA Magazine Recognizes Covario as Nation's Top Search Agency Two Years in a Row

SAN DIEGO, CA and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- Covario, Inc., the nation's top independent search marketing agency, has been recognized by OMMA (Online Media, Marketing and Advertising) magazine for the second year in a row as the Search Agency of the Year for 2012.

Covario was singled out as the 2012 Search Agency of the Year for its leadership in both search engine optimization (SEO) and in paid search engine marketing (SEM), while also being one of the search agencies in the forefront of innovation relative to new social media and content marketing strategies.

OMMA acknowledged Covario's emergence as a provider of high-performing search and content marketing strategies for global Fortune 500 brand marketers, as well as some of the nation's leading online retailers.

During the course of 2012, Covario experienced significant international growth from both new and existing clients. As a result, the six-year-old San Diego-based agency expanded its global footprint of talent and expertise around the world, including expansion in Europe, China, and Brazil. The firm also brought on additional executive talent and thought-leadership to the organization, including authorities with expertise in international programs, paid search, SEO, social media, and mobile search.

"Everyone at Covario is thrilled that OMMA recognized the banner year our agency team had again in 2012," said Covario CEO Russ Mann. "Clearly, our vision for passion, innovation, and partnership is paying big dividends in terms of successful search and content marketing programs for our clients. It's particularly rewarding for our team to see their results recognized across the industry."

Just last month, Covario was also named a "strong performer" in The Forrester Wave™: Search Marketing Agencies, Q4 2012.

"These awards are illustrative not only of our growth, but most importantly of the customer satisfaction and the ROI we're achieving for our clients day in and day out," said Mike Gullaksen, managing director and senior vice president of Covario. "To win the OMMA Search Agency award two years in a row is an honor that our team is proud to share with our clients around the world."

Earlier in the year, Covario was the only search agency to be named by OMMA as a finalist in its annual Online Advertising Creativity awards for both its SEO work with Samsung and its SEM campaign with Guthy-Renker's Proactiv brand.

Covario and the other 2012 Agency of the Year Award winners will be honored by OMMA at a gala event at the Yale Club in New York on Jan. 29, 2013. Details of the winning agencies will also be covered in the January edition of OMMA magazine.
