Laura Graham-Brown

Arcadia Delicatessen

As a small family retail business, spending anything 'under the hood' of our website feels like a luxury, especially when you're not fully understanding of what work needs carried out and whether or not it will have a positive impact on the bottom line - sales. Paul is aware of this and is very adept at highlighting those tasks which would make the most positive impact and can also explain them in plain English! Money spent with Paul has undoubtedly paid dividends and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Dennis Bree

Senior Sales Manager at Twitter

Paul is an exceptional developer that understands how to translate business objectives into e-commerce development. With an eye for detail Paul has developed some of the most robust e-commerce solutions we have ever developed. He is an asset to any client project .

Barry Adams

SEO Consultant, Co-Chief at State of Digital, Public Speaker and Educator

Paul is an exceptionally reliable, competent, and affable web developer. His knowledge of the Magento ecommerce platform is second to none. Paul always gives great input on projects and processes and is one of the friendliest fellows you'll ever meet. A true delight to work with and a core asset of our team.

Naomh McElhatton

Director of Digital Education at House of Comms

Having worked with Paul over the years I can honestly say that you won't ever find a more dedicated, motivated and meticulous developer. Pauls attention to detail is amazing, he listens to what the client needs and offers the best solutions and advice on how their project will work best for them!

Celine Magill

Managing Director of artonfashion.com

Paul played an essential part of how I progressed my online business. His E-Commerce skills are outstanding and he exceeded all expectations! A true pleasure to work with. He is very personable and amenable and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Angie Brown

Print Director, Pierce Printellect

Paul is such a great guy. As our magento developer he has become such an integral part of our team. He sits quite silently and just works... and works ... and works! When you speak to him and ask him to do something you just know that he will go away and do it well. In front of clients he just gets it - he understands what a client wants and is able to incorporate that into whatever he needs to do for them. I sincerely hope that Paul remains part of our team for a long time to come.

Daithi Conlon

Managing Director at WebsiteNI

Paul joined WebsiteNI straight from University and became an integral part of the team from day one. He was singularly responsible for getting our Republic Of Ireland sales channel up and running and sold over 30 websites in his first year.

Technically, Paul always pushed himself to develop his skills and he was responsible for moving us over from OS Commerce to Magento. He has gone on to become one of the most experienced Magento developers in Northern Ireland.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in endorsing Paul and I look forward to watching his career develop.

Elham Rizi

Editor-in-Chief at PHANTOM

Paul was a fantastic employee and colleague. I liaised with him on graphic design layouts for both advertorials and editorial for the Adman Publishing portfolio of magazines. Paul is not only a team-player, but he has excellent creative ideas; he realised concepts quickly and effectively, always delivering content and designs well before the publishing deadline.
