Dave Linabury Joins Ann Arbor Digital Marketing Agency As Chief Digital Officer: Ann Arbor-based Ingenex Digital Marketing has welcomed Dave Linabury, an industry leader in software development, social media marketing and digital strategy, to its team of digital marketing and content marketing professionals. Linabury joins the Ingenex team as the Chief Digital Of?cer. Linabury will direct all digital marketing efforts, social, search and web strategy for Ingenex clients, including such brands as Osram Opto Semiconductors, AIAG, k-Space, ThinkStretch, Bloom Roo?ng, Weber’s Ann Arbor, and more. Linabury will also guide digital strategy and help the seven-year-old digital agency grow beyond its Ann Arbor roots to land more national clients. Before joining Ingenex, Linabury headed up digital operations at Campbell Ewald in Detroit. In a “Mad Men”-like move from a mid-size traditional agency to a boutique digital shop, Linabury brings his 20-plus years of digital experience to Ingenex — including his background in working with household names like Chicken of the Sea, the U.S. Postal Service and the U.S. Navy. Linabury is a sought-after public speaker on social media marketing, experiential marketing, social media security, as well as digital and content strategy. He was also part of the team that developed b2, the original blogging platform now known as WordPress.
