Glass Mountains was established in 2001 and, since then, has helped countless businesses & organisations significantly improve the effectiveness of their websites and digital strategies.
The company was formed by Joel Hughes, and is based in Newport, South Wales. This allows easy access to & from London, Bristol, and Cardiff.
We have a team of six Glass Mountaineers; offering a range of skills & expertise to help your business thrive online. We also work closely with trusted partners to help clients with related services such branding, copyrighting, photography etc.
Joel started at an early age watching programmes such Making The Most of the Micro and anything else that was even vaguely related to computers. He studied Computing at the University of Plymouth and obtained a 2:1 degree.
He has an impressive 15 years IT industry experience; working for blue chip companies such as American Express and British Airways. In the late 90’s he was working on OS/390 IBM mainframe computers but soon moved over to web technology; which looked like it had a bit of a future!
“Change is the only constant in the world of digital technology. We love the change and the challenge. And that’s why our clients trust Glass Mountains to help steer them through these choppy waters.”
