Adam Tuson
Managing Director

“Hello, I’m Adam. MD at Number1. Before setting up the company, I spent 20 years as a senior marketing professional for businesses like LloydsTSB, Universal Pictures and Santander. Those years gave me real business insight into online and offline sales, and marketing campaigns.

“I’ve been lucky enough to help all sorts of organisations develop and get on - FTSE 100 companies as well as SMEs working in insurance, travel, engineering, professional services, charity, film and music.

“It’s a varied background and I believe it allows me to help your website get more valuable traffic, more business and more profit. If you think we can help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via adam@number1.co.uk or on 01580 211 937. Good luck with all your online marketing activities and I hope we can speak soon.”

Dan Frost
Chief Technical Officer

“I’m Dan, Chief Technical Officer. I set up Number1 with Adam after a good few years at the Daily Mail and General Trust Group. Working there helped me build not only the technical expertise that’s needed in this industry, but also a personal competitive streak that I’ve always had in making a success of things I created – websites among them.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to win industry awards for projects I initiated and led, like an Interactive BAFTA and a Microsoft ‘Best Use of ICT’ award. But it’s in the real business world that I like to be judged, helping you make the most of your online presence.

“The technical side is ultimately down to me, and I’m confident in what I’ve learned and achieved over the years. Working closely with companies like yours, facing real-world challenges, I’ve seen how you can operate most effectively online. Let’s talk some more at dan@number1.co.uk or on 01332 929 281.”
