Our Google Background

Julie Warnecke, CEO

Found Search Marketing was founded, and is owned and managed, by former Google AdWords originals. No one else in the market understands paid search like our CEO, Julie Warnecke.

After graduating from Indiana University, Julie moved to Mountain View, California, and began working at Google. Julie was employee #4 on the AdWords Ad Operations team from 2001 – 2005.

During her tenure, Julie worked on initiatives such as launching AdWords Select – a new cost-per-click platform that changed the digital landscape forever, and the industry-changing AOL syndication deal which helped to assist an advertiser support infrastructure.

Julie was also a key contributor to the 2002 opening of the Google Paris office. She has had the opportunity to work alongside many leaders in the digital space.

In 2006, Julie’s passion for helping businesses grow through data-driven and results-oriented advertising sparked a new venture; she moved back to the midwest and started Found Search Marketing.
