Sean helped Simpleview acquire the talent and resources necessary to successfully manage the increased workload and ensured efficient processes were in place to meet customer expectations with the quality, creativity, and timeliness that they have come to expect from Simpleview. "Under Sean's leadership we have successfully launched more than 110 websites on the new platform, and more than 200 prior to that, without a single failed project ," said Ryan.
