Mike spent 30 years at IBM, rising to Distinguished Engineer, an executive-level technical position. Mike held various roles in his IBM career, including eight years at IBM’s customer-facing website, ibm.com, most recently as the Manager of ibm.com Web Experience, where he led 65 information architects, web designers, webmasters, programmers, and technical architects around the world.

Mike worked at ibm.com from 1998 through 2006, pioneering IBM’s successful search marketing program. IBM’s website of over two million pages was a classic “big company” website that has traditionally been difficult to optimize for search marketing. Mike, working with Bill Hunt, developed a strategy for search engine marketing that works for any business, large or small. Moran and Hunt spearheaded IBM’s content improvement that has resulted in dramatic gains in traffic from Google and other internet portals.

"Mike joined our MatchPoint team in the early stages of product development. We believed that his expertise in search technology would help guide the development of MatchPoint's contextual search algorithms. And we were right. But, even more valuable than his technical contribution was the practical business judgment that Mike brought to bear on MatchPoint's evolution. He has contributed to all phases of the MatchPoint project, from user interface to launch strategies and marketing, and has become an invaluable, and valued, member of the team."

"Poised and articulate, Mike Moran knows how to deliver information and move an audience. In an engaging training session on SEO strategies, Mike delivered an amazing presentation to our attendees, the majority of which are top-level executives in the ticketing and live entertainment industry. As executive director of the event, I appreciated Mike’s level of professionalism and thorough preparation, so as to tailor the presentation to the needs of our attendees. His session in particular was rated among the top events of the conference. I would highly recommend Mike as a guest speaker to any event or organization looking to learn about marketing strategies and get that edge to succeed."
