Organik SEO is proud to announce founder and CEO, Julien Brandt, was recognized as a 2012 nominee for The San Diego Business Journal’s “Most Admired CEO” award. This was Brandt’s first year being nominated for his outstanding leadership in the private companies category along with CEO’s from Stone Brewing Co., Torrey Pines Bank, LifeProof, Pacific Building Group and more.
“To be eligible for this award has been a huge honor in my professional career, and I’m humbled to be among the high caliber of San Diego CEO’s considered,” said Brandt. “All of the men and women selected have represented their respective companies with the highest integrity, strategic forethought and innovative vision, which have catapulted these great San Diego companies to success.”
San Diego Business Journal’s “Most Admired CEO” award recognizes San Diego business leaders and is decided every year by an independent panel of judges based on the CEOs’ contribution to their companies and the community, with an emphasis on innovation, leadership and results-based focus.
Brandt was nominated as a 2012 Most Admired CEO for his strategic guidance, which has resulted in the rapid expansion of Organik SEO from a sole proprietorship to a team of eight in under three years. Through Brandt’s business development and educational outreach, Organik SEO has more than doubled its revenue year over year, continued to expand its service offerings and has expanded its client portfolio to over 100 small to mid-sized business.
“I share this nomination and recognition with my team, who is the lifeblood of this organization. As John Buchan wrote, ‘The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.’ I’m a firm believer that you hire the best people, put them in the right position, and then let them flourish. I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work as we continue to blaze a new path in the online marketing industry. As we embark on 2013, we will continue to focus on transparent business practices and maintain our unwavering commitment to social responsibility.”
