Leadership

Frederick Vallaeys

Frederick Vallaeys

Co-Founder & CEO

Fred was one of the first 500 employees at Google where he spent 10 years building AdWords and teaching advertisers how to get the most out of it as Google's AdWords Evangelist. As a technologist at heart, he's always on the lookout for ways that technology can simplify the lives of marketers. As a founding member of the team that created the AdWords Editor, an industry-favorite tool for making AdWords account management more efficient, he knows what it takes to simplify managing AdWords and as a co-founder at Optmyzr, he hopes to continue creating world-class online marketing products.

He has extensive experience designing enterprise class software both for servers and for the cloud. These days he is responsible for everything tech at Optmyzr and spends his time architecting new tools that will make managing SEM campaigns easier. A geek at heart, he loves traveling. His first startup with Geetanjali was tripfeet.com - a site that makes travel planning easy and fun.

Our Story

After leaving Google where we worked on AdWords, we briefly became PPC consultants. But we soon started building software when we couldn't find any affordable tools to help us optimize campaigns.

Having been involved in PPC since its early days in the late 1990s, we saw time and again that doing PPC the right way is time consuming.

So we started coding with one simple goal: to fix the gaps in the PPC platforms' management tools so PPC experts can deliver world-class results in a fraction of the time.

Like many companies, we shift to work-from-home, but we don't miss a beat with our operations. Our customer success team makes sure users in hard-hit industries retain access to our software. Our engineers launch team workflow tools that are especially useful for distributed teams. We add support for Amazon Ads. Our marketing team starts PPC Town Hall, a bi-weekly livestream where experts share their insights.

2019

Our team is 25 people strong with offices in the Silicon Valley, Hyderabad and Santiago. Fred writes a book to help digital marketers get the most out of an ever-more automated PPC landscape: 'Digital Marketing in an AI World.'

2018

Pictured here, Fred has flown to the Optmyzr office in Hyderabad India to meet with the team. During a hackathon there, the team builds an Alexa skill so you can say: 'Alexa, ask Optmyzr how my account is doing'.

2017

Optmyzr's team of 10 meets in Bali for a company offsite. Our whole team is comprised of engineers, customer success specialists, and founders so we have lively pie-in-the-sky discussions about what to create next for our customers.
