I have been working with webmasters for almost 20 years. I happen to be the fist person to have ever hired a Webmaster for a large auto insurance company in the United States. The qualities we were looking for then are still the qualities that all hiring managers, entrepreneurs, project managers, web managers look for today: technical knowledge and capability, creativity, flexibility, timeliness, ability to understand the customer and make recommendations, the uncanny ability to understand when a non-technical person explains how they want the site to look, infinite patience, excellent communication skills, the ability to discern when to say “that doesn't look too good” as well as the ability to be sensitive enough to not say anything at that particular time and most important, a person who loves and takes great pride in his work. I can say unequivocally that Paul Jones has all these qualities and then some.
Not only is Paul creative and has a real appreciation for color, design and layout he is also very technically versed. Paul quickly becomes more than just the webmaster you hired, he strives to understand your business and works at understanding what might best represent the business.
Pauls' ability to “get it” is almost spooky. He has a gift in understanding what his clients don't say. Those words/ideas that all clients try to express when talking about a theme or design but have problems expressing what they see in their minds eye. Paul almost always figures it out and 99% of the time it is better than what was originally in his clients mind.
Paul is a consummate professional. He never misses a deadline, keeps the client on their toes when he is aware that a deadline is approaching, and he is always pleasant.
Paul Jones is truly a keeper. He will add that special touch to any project he works on and when the project is concluded you will be trying to think of other projects for him to do because you will not want to lose him. He is simply put – outstanding!
