Date: October 17, 2005
Interactive Agency Expands into San Francisco Market with Massimo Burgio at the lead
Dallas, TX (October 17, 2005) – Zunch Communications, Inc. (http://www.zunch.com) announced today the opening of new branch in San Francisco to be managed by search engine marketing industry leader, Massimo Burgio. Burgio will serve as the Business Development Manager for the Zunch San Francisco office, located in downtown San Francisco across the street from the Yerba Buena Gardens.
“We’ve been wanting to set up shop in California for some time,” said Zunch Chairman & CEO John Sanchez. “When we had Massimo sign on, we knew that this was the perfect opportunity for us to open up in San Francisco. Massimo is very well thought of in our industry and he’ll be a great representative of Zunch both here and abroad.”
Dallas-based Zunch Communications, Inc. opened a New York City location this past July and is looking forward to several other new locations opening internationally in the next year.
“We’ve been growing a lot lately,” said Sanchez. “But our main reason for doing so is to better serve our existing clients by having a Zunch office located closer to their places of business. We see this expansion as a service to our existing clients and those to come in the future.”
Massimo Burgio served as the San Francisco Branch Manager for Ad Maiora, a leading European search engine marketing and online advertising agency, where for two years he oversaw the start-up of the company’s new San Francisco locations. He is also an active member of the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization (SEMPO) and a frequent speaker at Search Engine Strategies events.
“By opening up in San Francisco with Massimo in charge we’re better able to expand our client services on the West Coast,” said Sanchez. “And with Massimo in charge, we’re looking forward to expanding into San Francisco with a great leader.”
“Zunch today is one of the few search engine and interactive marketing agencies in the US with a serious commitment, and a ready-to-go structure, that can help its clients targeting International markets such as Europe, Asia and Latin America,” said Massimo Burgio. “The approach at Zunch is client-focused, search-centric, strategic and creative, so I think it will be fun to build business together. Also, it is an honor for a Latino like me to join one of the 10 fastest growing US-Hispanic owned companies in the States. With the San Francisco office we are now ready to provide Latino-targeted online marketing services to help businesses on the West Coast reach this important mundo de consumidores”.
Born and raised in Italy, Burgio earned a BA in Marketing Communications in Italy from the University of Rome La Sapienza, with studies also in London, UK, and Oviedo, Spain, before he continued his post-graduate studies in Paris, France, and Berkeley, California. He has worked with the top creative interactive agencies in Italy, including Deepend and xister.com, and was involved in the start-up and marketing of Kataweb, Wind and RAI Net, some of Italy’s top Internet players.
