Finch Gets First Place for Paid Search at North American Premier Partner Awards

Salt Lake City, UTAH – August 8, 2017

Finch has won a major Google Premier Partners Award for Search Innovation 2017. Google created the The Premier Partners Awards to celebrate innovation and success in digital marketing. This comes after Finch won last year’s award for Google EMEA’s Best Shopping Performance of 2016.
