About Helena
The only person who has the ability to be in command of our Managing Director, and that's his wife, Helena Smith.
With a head for figures, Helena definitely has her fingers on the pulse when it comes to managing wkdCODE's finances. A Chartered Accountant with over 25 years of experience in companies large and small, she is a true off balance sheet asset to the ever growing wkdCODE's team. Outsourcing is a tricky business and Helena constantly makes sure we retain one eye on the figures while we keep our eyes on delivering unrivaled website development support.

About Iain
Iain has been part of the wkd team for nearly 5 years and his passion for digital excellence is still as strong now as when he joined the team.
Although his passion lies with the technical challenges that complex frontend development projects present, Iain can pretty much turn his hand to anything coding related. Writing his first computer game as a teenager, he hasn't stopped developing since, resulting in nearly 17 years playing with digits. Iain supports the development team where needed, taking on either frontend or backed development.

About Ashleigh
May we introduce you to the youthful, quick witted and extremely knowledgeable, Ashleigh Haughton.
Although Ashleigh has been with wkdCODE for quite some time, not many agencies would have been introduced because Ashleigh manages a handful of outsourced marketing retainers, a new(ish) service we are currently refining before launch. Ashleigh is a very experienced marketing manager with years of experience covering Social, Email, SEO, PPC, Direct and much more, so if you have any marketing activities you would like to outsource, Ashleigh is your gal.
