Chris Simmance is the Chairman and Founder of Optus Digital and Under2. The companies provide both SEO and PPC services as well as wicked fast loading web builds that get users hearts pumping. Based in London he spends a great deal of time getting cranky at the state of the web and plans to fix it, one site at a time. He and his team are the people behind the BrightonSEO ticketing platform, you know, the one that hasn’t gone down on every ticket release day since we changed it. Love the ballot or hate it, it doesn’t fall apart anymore.

He’s a big fan of Bill Gates’ quote “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” as it’s a really good way of getting away with finding a shortcut. Perhaps that’s where the obsession with site speed comes in?

Chris is pretty much self taught and started working in SEO from a small local agency through to a multinational before deciding to “go it alone” and set up for himself. 5 years later and 2 regional offices and he’s winning work from some well known established high street brands.
