DALLAS, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Standing Dog Interactive, a Dallas, TX-based Internet marketing agency, has announced the promotion of two team members to enhance its ability to serve clients and provide innovative digital solutions.
The award-winning agency has promoted Mike Ulrich to director of digital marketing technology and Chris Brown to director of digital marketing.
Ulrich started at the company as an SEO manager in October 2013. In his new role, he will continue to oversee Standing Dog's newly created technical team while conducting high-level research, direction, ideation, troubleshooting and training. He will additionally be responsible for the implementation of tools for all technical projects for many of the agency's local and international clients.
"Mike was the inspiration behind the creation of Standing Dog's technical team," said Rob Phillips, president of Standing Dog. "His interest and passion for going beyond just general SEO allows us to find deeper resolution for our clients' needs without outsourcing. He went from simply doing his work to defining what it could do."
Brown joined Standing Dog in August 2013 as a digital specialist and was promoted to senior manager nine months later. Today, he manages the growing digital strategy program for Standing Dog's principal client, Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
"Chris has a forte in developing efficiency, and it's that organization and structure that allows him to help oversee one of our largest clients," Phillips said. "Management has always come naturally to Chris, and he's been able to set a pace for the team that optimizes productivity while never sacrificing quality."
While his title has changed, Brown said his goals at Standing Dog have remained the same throughout his tenure: to excel in his work while helping others learn and grow, identify pain points for his team and work to eliminate them, and provide strategies to clients that are beyond their current realities.
"While very different in the nature of their day, Ulrich and Brown are two directors that share a similarity when it comes to their passion for innovation," said Mike Wylie, CEO of Standing Dog. "You can see them light up when they are discussing what they're working on. You know they're onto something amazing."
Standing Dog celebrated its 10th anniversary in July 2015 with the launching of a reimagined website that puts an emphasis on culture, shedding light on employees, their opportunities to volunteer in the community, participate in on-site yoga, get involved in sports leagues and take advantage of programs to promote a better work-life balance. The agency also introduced "flextime," allowing team members to create flexible work schedules to balance business while making time for family, friends, health and personal interests. The successful initiative has already drawn the attention of The Dallas Morning News.
