About Buchanan Drive Digital by Geoff Martyn
My next job was for Scottish Mutual and Abbey National Financial Asset Managers on St. Vincent Street in Glasgow. Their team at the time consisted mainly of CICS, Cobol and DB2 developers without much web experience. So I was drafted in as the ‘web guy’, a nickname that seems to have stuck ever since. That was in 1999 and over the years I managed to become more of a fully fledged web developer undertaking various roles within the software development department.
Fast forward to 2006 and I took voluntary redundancy, as I was looking to go beyond the limits of my current full-time position. Although I was essentially out of the 9-5, I managed to build up a decent client base and found myself in demand for web consultancy roles. One of which was for the online clothing company, Red Torpedo whom I have worked with ever since.
As I was freelance and working under my own steam, it made sense to broaden my horizons beyond a small handful of clients and around 2013, I moved into an office on Albion Street in Glasgow alongside Liddell Thomson and Spreng & Co. (now merged to form Spreng Thomson), and also Graven. This expanded my client base substantially and around the same time, I moved into the provision of website Hosting and Care Plans, Social Media Management, Training and Search Engine Optimisation.
I love working closely with clients to achieve their goals and objectives and look forward to hearing all about your latest project.
