Lincoln MD becomes county’s only Magento accredited e-commerce specialist

This story is over

Entrepreneur and managing director Phil Kelsey has become Lincolnshire’s only e-commerce specialist to be officially accredited by the shopping cart developer Magento.

He has also become one of only 95 people across the whole of the UK to receive the accolade of ‘solution specialist’ working with the programmes produced by the California-based company.

Phil sat a 60-question exam in order to demonstrate he had a thorough understanding of the Magento software options, used by retail giants such as Coca-Cola, Nestle and Burger King.

The news comes just months after a team from Spiral Media were invited to Google’s London HQ to give their feedback on the services Google offered and given a tour of the company’s offices.

Phil said: “Knowing how knowledgeable my colleagues are, and how we all contribute to each others learning, I feel it’s a strong reflection of the business rather than just myself.

“Understanding the capabilities of the software allows us to tailor our advice and provide services that exceed our clients’ expectations and is another big step towards our ambition of becoming a UK-wide leader in eCommerce and Magento development.”
