Jason Woodford

Chief Executive,

South East Leadership Board

Jason Woodford started the company now called SiteVisibility when he bought Academy Internet from the liquidator in 2002. The company was already one of the leading Internet marketing training consultancies, but after deciding to specialise in search engine marketing they took it to a point where it was ranked as one of the 50 fastest growing companies in the UK in 2007, 2008 and 2009 by the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 index.

Following angel investment, in February 2008 Jason acquired a small but respected search engine optimisation (SEO) agency called SiteVisibility with which they merged their SEO and PPC operations while selling their e-learning business to Redtray.

Jason is passionate about working with ambitious entrepreneurs and businesses to achieve their goals online. Seeing employees grow also brings great personal satisfaction, as when, for example, ex-trainees have developed into professional consultants at the top of their game.

SiteVisibility won the Business in the Community Small Company of the Year award in 2007.

The company is a founder member of Wired Sussex, which supports and strengthen the local digital business community on the worldwide stage.
