Dave Wallace
Dave started his career in Yellow Pages. He discovered the Internet one day in 1994 and it was love at first sight. He then helped to put Yellow Pages online, before leaving to join an e commerce company called Entranet in 1997. He then enjoyed and endured the best and worst of the dot.com boom and bust, helping to grow Entranet, help it prepare for an IPO and then shrink it down again. Following that little adventure, he co-founded HeathWallace (http://www.heathwallace.com) in 2001. From a standing start in 2001, HeathWallace was soon working with some of the world's largest brands. The company continued to grow and based on its success in the UK it looked internationally. The company now has offices in Hong Kong, Chicago, Cape Town, Melbourne, Dubai, Singapore and Reading. In 2008 the company was acquired by WPP. The HeathWallace story continues apace... Dave has a wife, 5 kids, 2 dogs and a cat. He is an out and out Digital enthusiast.

(0) Comments | Posted 16 April 2014 | (14:55)

My children have no qualms about spending seven quid on buying imaginary 'jewels' for their dragons for a game. Spending seven pounds on my credit card, I should add. As their focus is fixed solely on completing the game, I wonder if they have any concept of money: real, physical...

Unsurprisingly, it is so compulsive that it is...

They had met through Facebook, of course.

They had carried out...
