CARFAX

Nakul currently leads an award-winning team as Head of Growth for Carfax and Carfax Canada. His team’s work at Carfax has turned the company from an industry-acknowledged “SEO junior to SEO leader” according to industry pundits. Within Carfax, Nakul has been recognized for his outstanding leadership and for his team’s contributions to traffic and revenue growth for the last three years in a row. The numbers show the difference that the growth team has made, but these are confidential.

PRE-CARFAX

Prior to joining Carfax, Nakul was a senior member of growth teams at TripAdvisor and Oriental Trading Company (owned by Berkshire Hathaway). While at both companies, Nakul worked with his colleagues to achieve exponential growth. At TripAdvisor, he supported growth across 55 international websites in 29 languages and, through testing, developed products that generated millions for the company. At Oriental Trading Company, Nakul realized 100% revenue growth in year one and continued to double digital growth and traffic every year after that.

From SEO Youth Entrepreneur in India to Global Growth Vet

Nakul is unique in the SEO industry in that his entire professional career has been focused on growth and SEO. He is often called a veteran or a trailblazer by his peers. Nakul got his start in SEO when he was a teenager in the late 90s in Chandigarh, India, and has never looked back. He overcame several obstacles, such as reliable Internet access and a tool in its infancy, to launch a successful website development company with several employees. Seeing the importance of SEO and excited by the challenge of it, Nakul soon pivoted from development to search and through his SEO agency started producing results that caught the attention of companies in the United States. After contracting for a while to help corporations like Staples grow, Nakul was recruited to the United States in 2003 and embarked on an enterprise and advisory career that has allowed him to work internationally with exceptional leaders in a wide range of industries from travel and e-commerce to automotive and finance.

TESTIMONIALS

A few words from my colleagues…

Nakul is one of the most positive, enthusiastic and engaged employees I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He has vast knowledge and experience in the field of SEO but is able to translate into layman terms for all to understand. While at Oriental Trading, was always bringing new ideas to the table and was great at brainstorming and collaborating with others. Even though he is with another (non-competing) company right now, he still serves up ideas to our team and stays plugged into our progress — which is commendable and very much appreciated!

Lisa Kuehl
Director of Creative Services, Oriental Trading Co.

During his time at TripAdvisor, he was very approachable, passionate (all the time) and an all-around expert when it came to advanced topics in SEO.

Jackson Lo
SEO Lead, International Growth at Shopify

Nakul is an expert at his craft in SEO. More than an expert, he is a genius. He is bold, creative, experimental, innovative, intelligent, and very knowledgeable about all things search, both SEO and PPC.

Nakul was tremendously successful in growing sales and acquisition results, growing a team, nurturing and expanding the OTC brand, and in delivering executive level ideas regarding budgets, execution, projections, and short and long term strategy.

Included in the results were doubling of sales in his first year, then 10-25% year-over-year growth. Keyword and page rankings in to first page rankings doubled his first year, then grew by 20-40% each year afterwards.

Garrick Baxter
Digital Solutions Architect, Sirius Computer Solutions

When it comes to SEO, Nakul is one of the best in the industry.

Kaustav Neogy

In an industry where it is nearly impossible to keep up with the latest in technology and technique, Nakul somehow manages to stay ahead of the curve. He couples his great knowledge and work ethic with a tremendously positive attitude and personality. He is indeed an asset to any company smart enough to hire him.

Eric Tucker
Certified Scrum Trainer, Agile Coach

He has a great ability to analyze and understand the SEO influencers within an E-commerce environment and communicate the impact to the bottom line to all management levels.

Ann Kruse
Project Coordinator, Thrasher

We initially worked together at Oriental Trading Company where Nakul defined, built and executed the SEO strategy for the organization.
