Rob Ousbey

VP Operations - Distilled

Rob Ousbey is a VP for Distilled, the online marketing company. Rob joined the small, London-based Distilled team in 2008 as an junior team member, delivering SEO for local clients, and later took on reputation management for a variety of politicians, CEOs, and celebrities.

In 2010, Distilled had an opportunity to expand beyond the UK, so Rob moved to Seattle to establish Distilled in the US. He spent the following years building a team of online marketing experts who deliver strategic and tactical work for everyone from fast-growth startups to the world’s largest brands.

Rob now splits his time between running the Seattle office, sitting on the Distilled leadership team, hosting the Searchlove conferences, and traveling for speaking engagements and clients around the US and APAC.

In his previous life, Rob worked in broadcasting; he was a radio producer and later presented his own national shows – but is most proud of pushing his station to be the first in the UK to podcast their programming.

When no one is looking, Rob lets his hacker/coder side come out, and has released a number of SEO tools & services. He keeps quiet about his profitable blackhat side, in all but the most ungagged of situations…

Outside of the internet, Rob loves exploring the Pacific Northwest with his wife and son; they recently returned from five days in the Washington state wilderness.
