Gil took Answers.com forward in the world of SEO, positioning the site content to gain visibility and traction. He worked to cultivate relationships with key players in the SEO industry, often gaining insight that was later applied to the site.
As a leader, and as a person, Gil is creative and humble. His gears always turning, Gil is open to ideas from the most senior to the newest member of his team. He has that rare ability to detach from an invested position and adjust course when needed, without looking back. For our team, this attitude set a tone of trust, honesty and a welcomeness for thinking outside the box.
Gil’s encouraging approach was not limited to the office; he also shared his knowledge with the search community at large, speaking at conferences around the world and blogging about management or SEO.
Always ready with a laugh, and the fastest speaker I’ve ever met, Gil was an excellent manager who recognized the abilities of his team and enabled us to do what we do best without interfering. I look forward to working with him again one day.
