A Wealth of Experience

Digital Acla was formed in 2001 when founder John McNamara moved from London to the west of Ireland. Prior to this move he had gained over ten years' experience working in the communications industry in the UK. His CV includes several years working as a desk editor for the Financial Times Information group, including early experience of the Web in the mid-1990s as content needed to be added to the nascent FT.com Web site.

John also worked as a freelance copywriter for a range of corporate communications agencies, contributing to projects for clients including Mercedes-Benz, H. Bosch (Blaupunkt), BT, SBC Warburg, Compaq Computers and Mercury Communications.

In 1998 he became a Web site producer on BTconnecttobusiness, a BT 'portal' site aimed at small- and medium-sized businesses in the UK. Eighteen months later he joined a dedicated web design agency, Red Hot Chilli, as a copywriter and content editor. During 15 months with this fast-growing agency he worked on several blue chip accounts as well as for many dotcom start-up clients.
