Aaron Goldman's Summary

Aaron Goldman is Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Freestyle Rap at Kenshoo, a digital marketing software company that engineers global technology solutions for search marketing, social media and online advertising. He thinks Kenshoo’s product suite is pretty sweet but prefers to let Kenshoo clients do the talking at Kenshoo.com/Testimonials.

Goldman has been running the digital marketing rap game for more than 12 years and is the author of Everything I Know about Marketing I Learned from Google (McGraw-Hill 2010). Prior to Kenshoo, Goldman founded Connectual, a digital marketing consulting and matchmaking firm.

Previously, he was VP, Marketing and Strategic Partnerships at Resolution Media, a search marketing agency that makes it rain under the Omnicom umbrella. Before that, Goldman managed U.S. Midwest sales for MaxOnline, an ad network that was folded into IAC. He sold a lot of pop-ups.

When he’s not busy Googling himself, Goldman is running around Chicago with his wife, Lisa, daughter, Eliara, and twins, Ethan and Mila.
