Founder and Digital Strategist

Ray began his career in corporate IT working in the City’s financial services market, where he worked for major companies like Prudential, AVIVA and IBM. Mid 90's Ray began to specialize in the internet world  helping banks to move their business online.

Passionate about internet technologies and innovation, Ray established his first internet services business in 1999 offering high-end expertise to charities and SMEs. His primary role at Reuben is to share his vision and knowledge of the internet and technology, helping clients create sustainable websites and digital business strategies.

When he’s not in the office, you’ll find Ray with his family or indulging in one of his many and varied passions: playing jazz on his beloved saxophones, riding motocross bikes with his son, shooting ‘from the hip’ with his Lomo LCA camera, or working out at his local boxing gym.

Business Support & Account Manager_

Gill has worked in information and website management for years, and became a client of Reuben’s whilst working as Information Manager for a large national charity in the 2000s. From there it was a simple step (via mumsy career break), to start working for Reuben.  Since 2009, she’s been busy organising, invoicing, content managing, client liaising and training here...seeing every job through with an eye for the detail.

Away from the office, Gill enjoys a slower pace of life on camping trips in her beloved Raclet trailer tent called Sally and drags her family on frequent weekends away. She would like to point out however that she never camps...only "glamps"!

Working as part of the customer support team with Louis, Corey is responsible for handling incoming calls to the office, and learning "the ropes" as web professional manning our helpdesk, assisting customers with day to day updates and management of their websites.

Team Mascot & Office Motivator_

Zelda’s main activities, pigeon chasing, sleeping, more pigeon chasing and more sleeping, frequently keep her away from the Reuben office but when she is present, she certainly makes valuable contributions to the team. This includes barking at just about everyone who deems to use the pavement outside our office, as well as rubbish bin rummaging and other food-related pursuits. She is also an excellent lap warmer but regrettably a bit of a snorer too.

When away from the office, she detests walks in the rain but enjoys belly rubs and lounging with Dawn, Ray, Louis and the rest of the Stephen’s family.
