About Simon Wallace-Jones

Having been schooled in database marketing working in the mid 80’s, Simon implemented a proprietary on-line database marketing system for DEC in 1989 which helped networked business partners to market more effectively.

This exposed Simon to the power of on-line marketing systems. Now all he needed was a ubiquitous network platform. This came along 1993 in the form of the World Wide Web which gave him the platform he needed.

In 1996 Simon started prototyping a completely web-based marketing system and subsequently launched the web-marketing system.

From 1997 his company pioneered the use of email marketing and web-marketing in the B2B channel working with some amazing global customers like 3Com, Sony and Lexmark and his job was always to lead the thinking and innovation in what they were doing.

In order to bring some of what Simon had learned to smaller businesses wanting to grow, they set up Oxford Digital Marketing which is structured to help Thames Valley businesses take their use of web and on-line marketing to the next level.
