Initially, I trained in hotel management and travelled throughout the world with my job at Glasgow Tourist Board. I then gave this up when I had my 3 children, then moved to work with Gordon.

At fatBuzz, I’m known for dealing with the finances for staff and suppliers. I’m also the person who people come to before they approach Gordon with an idea. For some reason, they think I’ll know how he’ll react!

With a MSc in Marketing Management and BA in Business Administration and Management, I have experience in diverse industries and roles, which have provided me with enriched skills and knowledge. Within the online marketing sphere, I have worked in the Google Rating Program, Localisation, Domains and SEO.

 

I am very interested in the startup world, tech, future trends, behavioural/economic/neuro sciences and I am usually found in speeches and meetings for such topics.

So far, I love the architecture and the vibrance of people.

Hesham Saqqar - Developer

A little about Hesham...

My role is designing websites, then converting the concepts into a dynamic, fully responsive, high-quality websites that reflect companies’ identities and pass on their message to their audience smoothly and efficiently.

I started building websites for relatives and friends as a hobby since the days of table-based layouts through the dark days of IE6 and Flash-only sites. That was before the Web Standards revolution and the beginning of Responsive Design and the JavaScript renaissance.

Although I’ve chosen a slightly different discipline for my life to study and work, web designing has always been my passion and my pleasant hobby. It was a challenging decision that I took three years ago when I decided to finally combine the practical experience with the academic study. So, I went back to university to study web and mobile development and am now finishing my last year at UWS whilst helping the fatBuzz team with their day-to-day tasks.

 

Besides web design; my skill set includes UI/UX, Mobile apps development, Graphic Design, Audio & Video Production.
