Gail Kingswell Trueman
Previously, Gail was a business consultant with 25+ year’s experience working with blue chip tech giants like IBM and Oracle serving major global manufacturers & service industries. She was responsible for winning over £10 million pounds worth of Oracle, SAP and IBM business management solutions as European Sales Development Manager for Workplace Systems International plc.
During a successful 10 year career as European Business Development Manager for a UK software development company, Gail saw huge potential in the then emerging world of the Internet and web-based software capable of running an online business.
Trained in graphic design, in the 1990's Gail had designed the landscape plan for Mercedes Benz new Milton Keynes UK HQ and campus. This, along with several earlier commercial design projects using innovative graphic design software, sparked Gail’s growing interest in web design.
At the end of 1999 Gail surprised everyone, took a leap of faith and left her cushy management job. 1LG was born just in time for the Y2000 Millennium. Today Gail manages all aspects of 1LG marketing & customer relations from first contact to project completion.
Today Gail still gets a buzz from helping clients with creative graphic and web design, and after 20+ years has got pretty darn good at optimising client websites to rank on Page 1 of Google, combined with writing killer copy and content designed to attract visitor traffic to their inbound marketing funnels.
Gianpiero (GP) Como
GP joined 1LG Digital in 2002 allowing more complex projects to be undertaken and enabling us to expand our client base and area of operation into Europe. He keeps the wheels turning & the servers serving.
With 10+ years experience in corporate software code development and project management gained during the 90's before joining 1LG, GP is our senior technical specialist for complex web applications development and our 'GoTo' site security wrangler.
GP is responsible for handling customer requirements that involve custom client and server code development, back-end data collection and content management systems fed by front-end websites that can't be achieved by 'off-the-peg' templated websites and SAAS applications.
In the early 2000's before WordPress was invented, GP created our own CMS. You’ll often find him beavering away at his desk in the wee small hours. If a client calls late on a Friday with a technical issue, he'll either be able to fix it and get you back up and running quick, or knows a (wo)man who can!
If your website isn't mobile responsive and doesn't load in under 3 seconds, your're not gonna rank on Google no matter how pretty it is. Our own Speedy Gonzales, GP can take a sluggish website that takes ages to load and turn it into the fastest, mobile-friendly website on the block.
