Craig Dunham has been named as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Deepcrawl, a global SaaS technical SEO platform with offices in London, New York and Poland. Mr. Dunham takes over as CEO at a critical juncture for Deepcrawl, which just had its best quarter ever, adding more business clients than ever before and surpassing the $10 million ARR mark.
Craig Dunham will oversee Deepcrawl’s ambitious expansion goals after a year of product innovation. He has a solid track record in strategic growth and leadership positions.
Dunham will take over for co-founder Michal Magdziarz, who will move into a new role as President and Chief Architect where he will apply his technical skills and drive Deepcrawl’s product innovation.
Mr. Dunham will take over as CEO of Deepcrawl immediately and will lead the company through its next phase of growth, as it pursues its mission to empower businesses by bringing SEOs, marketers, and engineers closer together. Under the leadership of Mr. Dunham, Deepcrawl will continue to connect the dots between often siloed SEOs and the rest of the business, and bring business operations together to improve website performance.
Deepcrawl, which was founded in 2010, completed a $19 million Series B fundraising round last year headed by Five Elms Capital and Beringea, bringing its total funding to $25.8 million. The company released its automated SEO testing solution and SEO Automation Hub,
through a brand and product refresh, and established a footing in the global MarTech scene with substantial US market penetration in the previous 12 months alone.
