In the spotlight: Gerry King

 

Each month, I like to shine a spotlight on one dynamic businessperson whom I believe is making a massively positive impact on their clients, connections and the business world in general. Shining a spotlight allows all of us to get to know these amazing people better. So, this month, let’s meet:

 

Name: Gerry King

 

Short bio:

i-Netco Ltd – WordPress Web Design service making sure that clients have websites that put them in control of their marketing hub i.e. their website. I started to learn HTML and web design at night school in 2001 before starting my own business in 2003. I believe that by applying best practice to every website I build I can help clients to avoid distress and expense in their life and business. A secure and easy to manage website allows them to focus on the positives of marketing their business online.
