Ben Guthridge


Ben Guthridge founded Search Rescue in 2016 after almost two decades of working at some of Australia’s biggest digital ad agencies. Having seen that the technical elements available to businesses weren’t all successfully being utilised, that marketing costs weren’t transparent and that sales were prioritised over results, Ben chose to start an honest and high-performance agency, whose ethos is to deliver high quality results, without sacrificing on trust or transparency.

An avid surfer and self-confessed numbers-nerd, Ben lives in Sydney’s East. He is passionate about sports, travelling and spending time at the beach with his family.

We started with Search Rescue from a zero base. Ben quickly identified our needs and opportunities and worked with us for great results through SEO and Google Ads. We saw an increase in traffic from week one and it continued. Great job and thanks Ben.

Jeff, Industrial Products - B2B
