notRick Rys founded Syreo in 2008. While Rick’s home base is Detroit, he is equally at home working with Fortune 500 brands in New York and Los Angeles. Is SEO rocket science? Kind of is. Because it can make a company’s revenue soar organically, that’s what Rick does. He was born with a computer (Macintosh) in one hand and a camera (Nikon) in the other. Not literally. However, he eventually combined his childhood passions into, you guessed it, lithography. Oh, you didn’t think that? No matter. From there, he used the natural synergy between the two to launch a career in web development. Today, his creative digital marketing tactics rely on the experienced and analytical use of search engine optimization, drawing traffic like free beer and a band. Rick was classically trained, and his marketing philosophy honed from his experience at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) in Rochester, NY, and Stanford University Online in Stanford, CA. His list of success stories includes well-known brands spread over a respected career that began in 1998 – the year Google was founded. His innovative techniques always stay a step ahead of the industry standard. He keeps his clients above the fold, creating opportunities that would usually not happen.
