Tuesday, April 12, 2022 (NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) — Hennessey Digital, leading digital marketing and SEO agency for top law firms, has hired Michael Cipielewski as its new Senior Director of SEO. The agency has also promoted engineering lead Blin Kazazi to Chief Technology Officer.
Cipielewski is a Landy Award-winning marketing leader who led Chevrolet’s SEO efforts for General Motors and joins Hennessey Digital after years leading an agency team focused on hyper-local SEO. With both enterprise-level SEO and agency experience, Cipielewski is excited to bring his skills to Hennessey Digital’s strong culture and sterling reputation in the legal industry.
“I wanted to work with Jason Hennessey, and I was very impressed by the company’s culture, specifically its diversity and inclusion efforts. Hennessey Digital’s growth trajectory is like a rocket to the moon. I’m ready to prepare the team for scalability, evolve best practices, and create opportunities for SEO R&D to revolutionize what we deliver for clients,” Cipielewski says.
With a promotion to Chief Technology Officer, Kazazi joins Hennessey Digital’s executive leadership team after much success scaling and leading the agency’s engineering department. The agency’s SEO, web development, and conversion rate optimization teams now report to Kazazi, and his promotion to CTO initiates an organizational shift that streamlines and enhances the agency’s core services.
“Since I joined Hennessey Digital in 2020, we’ve quadrupled the number of developers on the engineering team. And now that SEO, Engineering, and Analytics are more closely aligned, we’re working in tandem to create efficiencies that benefit our clients,” Kazazi says.
Hennessey Digital currently has team members across nine countries, including 22 in Ukraine. As the agency grows, it remains committed to its culture and taking care of its team members, as Kazazi explains.
“We are sensitive to the crisis our Ukrainian team members are facing and have ensured they have access to emergency paid time off. We’ve also created an emergency fund with company-matched donations from our team members around the world for colleagues in Ukraine to access if they need anything. One of our clients even matched these donations, which speaks volumes about the quality people who work for and with Hennessey Digital.”
