Steve Elford

Director of Web Development - Co-founder

Steve built his first website in 1999 out of necessity and has not stopped since.  He has seen the web evolve over the last 20 years and is always learning new methods to keep on top of this rapidly changing field.

He built the Traffic CMS from the ground up and is currently developing our own CRM and project management system.  His approach is always focussed on usability and does his best to avoid techie jargon.

Don't call him a geek. He hates that.
