Our Story so far...

In April 2014, SoBold was incorporated and founded by Will Newland.

We started by offering 'all things digital' to our clients, ranging from social media management to website development. The SoBold revolution was well and truly underway!

As our client base started to grow, a permanent home was needed so we moved into our first office at The Refinery, in Sloane Square.

We identified a real opportunity in building and managing websites with a focus on a quick delivery but also quality - something we felt the industry didn’t do very well.

To keep up with the ever increasing demand for our services we employed our first full-time web developer.

The power of our referral network started to really show and we were delighted to take on our first client outside of the UK.

As we started to work with more clients, we honed our offering to primarily website development & management.

A more focussed niché meant better results. Projects were coming in thick and fast and we hired a new designer and developer.

In turn they moved into a new workspace in the City of London, Bank

We launched our cloud hosting service which proved to be a massive success.

SoBold was shortlisted for the Young Business of the Year award. Three years had gone by and we were really beginning to establish ourselves.

The introduction of new processes and more streamlined workflows meant efficiency had never been better.

We became a leading Cookiebot partner and developed a series of GDPR packages so our clients were safe in the knowledge their websites were fully compliant with the new data protection regulations.

SoBold signed a digital partnership with global healthcare acquisition company, Clanwilliam Group.

As 2018 drew to a close, we began working with the care division of global real estate multinational Knight Frank and won a three year contract with Transport for London.

To accommodate the growing team we moved offices again, this time to a larger office in the City of London.

SoBold became cyber security accredited, a requirement for many of the larger projects we were now pitching for and winning.

A new year brought about a fresh look for the company as we refreshed our branding and launched a brand new website which clearly highlighted our services.

The SoBold Dashboard was launched, an internal portal for our employees to keep track of their work and fully immerse themselves in life at SoBold.

January 2020 saw us move to our third office in as many years, this time a brand new office South of the river in London Bridge with plenty of space for us to grow into over the coming years.

Will Newland

Managing Director

I am an enthusiastic individual at the forefront of all projects at SoBold. I manage the day to day running of the company, as well as the new business and project management side of things.

I am a keen sportsman and coming from an entrepreneurial background am fascinated in working with new exciting businesses who are looking to build their online presence.

Sam Phillips

Lead Developer

I’m a front end developer passionate about cutting edge technologies and creating quality user experiences. I oversee the technical operations of the company, ensuring each and every website we build is perfect before it is handed over to a client. 

Outside of work, I enjoy watching a range of sports, especially football, where I’m an avid Watford FC supporter, and Formula 1.

Mirko Mica

Front-End Web Developer

I am friendly Frontend Web Developer with good SEO knowledge (I reckon), I always like to take on new challenges and learn new things to make my code better and more efficient.

I like music (minimal music the most).. A lot! I can play piano by ear and I always find some time to play!

I’m even a sport man (sometimes), I prefer free weight exercises and running rather then gymming or weight lifting.. Definitely not for me!

Tony Possamai

Junior Front-End Web Developer

I am a curious Frontend Web Developer with a background in Graphic Design, so when it comes to programming, everything needs to be pixel perfect. 

As a music lover and a musician myself, in my spare time I love to listen a good old vinyl and play a bit of guitar.

Leonardo Esposito

Front-End Web Developer

I am an inventive Web Developer helping the Team to achieve great results. What I crave the most is to learn new skills every day, to experiment new ways and technologies, focused on the future.

My passions are Sports, Music and Videogames, whether it’s playing the piano, playing video games or working out, if I’m not at work I’m doing one of these three things.

Guy Whale

Junior Front-End Web Developer

I’m a Front End Developer that gets my kicks from bringing to life fresh and effective designs. 

Nothing beats the satisfaction of watching a website come together piece by piece. The fact I usually learn something new on each project is an added bonus.

Outside of work I spend my time plotting my next trip abroad, cycling and occasionally pulling up weeds in the garden.

Jennifer Vobis

Junior Front-End Web Developer

I am a Web Developer with an Art Direction background. I still consider my work to be highly creative as it involves a lot of problem solving and thinking outside the box, which is also what I most enjoy about it.

Besides juggling code, I have a keen interest in astronomy, art, culture, comedy and travelling.

Martina Gabrielli

Junior Front-End Web Developer

I have a background study in Foreign Languages and Software / Web Localisation. As a Web Developer, I believe these two skills highly influence my work routine. And that’s why I love what I do!

I like spending my free time in nature and enjoy outdoor sports like climbing and running. You can usually find me out exploring the city with my faithful companion Brompton bike, or share a glass of wine with friends at the end of a busy week.

Chris Muldoon

Junior Front-End Web Developer

I’m a keen Front-End Developer with a curiosity for anything creative.

In my spare time you can find me playing guitar or making musical instruments if I am not seeking adventure outdoors or planning the next trip.

Anna Maria Kustra

Senior Graphic Designer

I am an ambitious Graphic Designer watching over the creative side of SoBold. I love modern clean and effective design, but I also enjoy experimenting with fun and unusual solutions.

When I’m not in front of a computer screen, I’m either at the gym, in the kitchen trying out new recipes or taking pictures of my cat.

Rory Muir

Junior Graphic Designer

I am a passionate Graphic Designer with a keen interest in UX after coming from a technical background in Engineering.  

Outside of work, I train full time as a middle distance runner with aspirations to represent Great Britain at an international level.

Andrew Thompson

Client Relationship Manager

I’m a highly motivated individual, with a proven track record in helping businesses take themselves to the next level. I work alongside Will, focussing on the new business and driving the projects to ensure the best end result.

Outside of work you will find me either on the football pitch, at training or game days, if not I’ll be in the kitchen expanding and finessing my cooking skillset.
