Who is behind the web directory?The web directory is a part of the five year marketing plan developed for the Smith Street Business Association (SSBA) 2012. Creating a central channel of Smith Street events, sales, news and history, has long been on the agenda.
Searching for a solution, the SSBA teamed up with Gareth Benson and Regin Buss Vels Jensen who have volunteered their time and resources to build a comunity web directory for Smith Street, with advanced features, not used in any other web directories for shopping streets at present moment.
Gareth and Regin have together with the president of the SSBA, Howard Frederick, been the driving forces behind a project, supplemented by vice-president Dianne Harris, that now enters its 5th month of active development, and that will transform the way tourists and locals see and visit Smith Street.
Gareth is digital media specialist in online video and photography content creation who can capture the story of your business. With an MA in Marketing Gareth consulted the SSBA for the five year marketing plan for the SSBA 2013- 2018 last year.
Regin is a Web solutions specialist and a Certified IT Project Manager. As project manager and developer he has produced more than 30 websites/webshops with leading international experience in web directory construction and delivery.
