Norfolk-based web design company Creospace is set to expand its business and service offering this month. Founded in 1999 by freelancer Gary Dickenson, the company has gone from strength to strength, attracting business clients from all over the UK.
Creospace will be appointing two new Director shareholders: Phil Houghton, Development Director, and Lisette Howlett, Business Director. Founder Gary Dickenson continues in his role of Managing Director, with primary responsibility for running the business. Gary says, “There is a growing demand for high-quality website development – not just in Norfolk but right across the UK. The timing was right to bring in two additional Directors to help develop the business and meet our increasing demand.”
Phil Houghton joins Creospace on a full-time basis in April from his previous role as IT manager for a multi-site business. Phil brings with him a wealth of technical knowledge, and will be developing the company’s bespoke software solutions. “There has never been a better time to be working on web-based database solutions. Bespoke business software is starting to become a valued part of all small and medium sized enterprises and at Creospace we have a strong foundation and expertise in this area. I see my focus over the coming months as continuing to develop some of our leading-edge software, enabling Creospace to provide solutions that are fun, easy to use, and fully adaptable to business needs.”
Lisette Howlett joins Creospace on a part-time basis to support business development and growth. “I see the future as very exciting from the point of view of web-based technology. My primary role will be to provide business support and I am delighted with the calibre of the team, the strength of their current client base, and their ambitious plans for the future.
“On the face of it, web development looks to be quite a crowded market but, as with most things, quality and service are key distinguishers; based on this, Creospace Limited stands out as the company to trust with your web brand and business systems.”
Creospace has a solid reputation for high-quality websites and web-based business systems – in fact, more than 50% of business comes from referrals. Building on this strong foundation, Gary Dickenson adds, “We believe, and our experience to date supports this, that a well-designed site with carefully crafted copy and high usability can make a significant difference to the profitability of our clients. We are able to apply database and web solutions to all business operations, from small retailers to national corporations, and these systems can significantly increase business efficiency – ultimately contributing to their profitability.”
