Who we are
Reddico was founded in 2012. It’s grown to an ever-expanding team of 30+ professionals with expertise in SEO, marketing and technology. Throughout their careers, our team members have worked with world-class brands across dozens of industry sectors.
Managing Director (Shareholder)
Nick spent four years at Ayima, and was Head of SEO Strategy before starting Reddico with Luke back in 2012. He’s been in the industry for 12 years.
He has worked in the most competitive spaces, including igaming, travel and financial services, for brands like Party Poker, FoxyBingo, Audley Travel, BlackRock & iShares, Aviva, RAC and Direct Line.
Nick has managed international outreach campaigns across these industries, building links in countries such as Russia, Slovenia, Poland and Sweden, as well as in the UK and the US, delivering 600+ links per month.
He is now responsible for the overall performance of the business and shaping its future direction, alongside supporting and enabling the team to work at their best.
Founder and Director (Shareholder)
Luke's journey into SEO started back in 2010 through the need to promote his own online projects, but with very limited budget he chose to explore SEO.

Today Luke primarily looks after new business opportunities and growth strategy for Reddico.
