Dodemaide began her career in the industry with Mediacom and has been with iProspect for the past 9 years.  She began as a search executive in 2014 before being promoted to digital performance manager, digital director and then client partner, respectively.

“I’m delighted to extend Bonnie’s remit to digital performance lead,” Rapson said.

“I look forward to working with our team nationally to accelerate brands through a performance mindset. We strive to elevate iProspect to a new level in digital performance and work together with our partners and our clients to provide best in class solutions to business challenges,” Dodemaide added.

Scauri started his SEO career with international digital marketing agency, Search Laboratory.  He has been with iProspect for 4.8 years in SEO roles as manager, director and now national SEO lead.

He has a proven talent for aligning business strategy and objectives with established brand development and digital management paradigms.

“JY has demonstrated time and time again his growth-focused thought leadership abilities for the business, with a passion for improving our operational efficiency and helping iProspect get more out of their digital strategies,” said Rapson.

“This new role for me is nothing short of amazing and I am enjoying the breadth of challenges thrown at me. I’m excited to be collaborating with our expanding team nationally to accelerate performance and deliver transformational SEO work for our clients and partners,” Scauri added.
