Search Laboratory has promoted Leonie Mann to Head of Technical SEO.

Mann has been with the Leeds agency for six years and joined as a developer in 2015 before diversifying her skills and joining the technical SEO team.

Search Laboratory was founded as a PPC agency in 2005 and has been running SEO campaigns for clients since 2007. The organic team consists of over 25 people split between the UK and New York.

Mann said, “I am very pleased to have been promoted to a senior technical position. The opportunities in the digital and tech industries in Leeds are enormous. I hope that my new role as Head of Technical SEO will inspire other women to apply for senior positions and that more companies will keep diversifying their tech teams and recruiting more women into these positions. “

James Bentham, Head of SEO at Search Laboratory, said, “Leonie brings a wealth of web development and coding experience to the role in addition to her excellent SEO knowledge. She is in the perfect position to keep our offerings on the cutting edge of technical search engine optimization and we look forward to seeing where she takes the team. “
