Co-founder | Alan Williams

Alan Williams created the concept of Need it Find it, originally a printed advertising leaflet and now an online North Devon Business Directory, to help businesses find new customers. This led to the creation of the first Bideford Business Expo event where response to the idea of relaunching a local business magazine was overwhelmingly positive.
