Who is Larry Lim?

Larry Googleplex

I’m the co-founder of SearchGuru, a performance marketing agency. We are a Google Certified Partner and authorized Facebook agency, with a managed spend in excess of US$10m a year.

Our clients include AirAsia (global), Clarins, Tune Hotels, Exabytes and UOB bank. We also work with startups like GrabTaxi, RedMart, 99.co and Luxola (acquired by LVMH).

Prior to this, I was consulting on SEO and SEM on a freelance basis since 2005. Some of the clients I worked on included ST701 (SPH), Knight Frank, iProperty, P1 and Telekom Malaysia.

Currently based in our Malaysian office, I make monthly work trips to catch up with the Singapore team. I also travel to attend events like Adobe Symposium, ClickZ Live Hong Kong and Tech in Asia Tokyo, and to exchange notes with other digital agencies around the region.

I’m highly passionate about marketing and have a keen interest on Internet business models and innovative startups. I’m a Civil Engineer by training.
