Director of Recruitment and Training
Wolfgang Digital

Ciaran is a Director of Recruitment and Training with Wolfgang Digital, Ireland's leading Digital Marketing Agency.


He joined as a PPC trainee in 2011 and he has since progressed from PPC executive to senior PPC executive to the Director role.


As a Trainee, he had one of Ireland’s first Google Case Studies published around the phenomenon of “showrooming” driving mobile sales for an online retailer of fitness equipment.


His first taste of Digital Marketing success came around this time as one of his campaigns won Best Search at Ireland’s Digital Media Awards.


His time is now split between managing some of Ireland's biggest PPC accounts and overseeing Recruitment and Training with the objective of identifying and delivering the next generation of award winning marketers at Wolfgang Digital.He is also an experienced speaker on the Digital Marketing circuit, having spoken at events across Europe including PPC Masters in Berlin and Friends of Search in Amsterdam.


Outside of Digital Marketing, Ciaran is an avid reader, with fantasy being his genre of choice, and still has not gotten over the Game of Thrones TV series passing out the books! His other passions are football and he is still getting to grips with Man Utd’s post-Fergie slide.


Wolfgang Digital are Ireland’s premier search marketing agency. Last Year they took home two awards  from the Drum Search Awards and repeated this feat when they came home from New York with two Landies last October.
