Douglas Ames
Managing Director
I love working with the team. They think I’m the driving force but they drive me more than they realize

Douglas Ames is the Owner and Managing Director of Webfx. We call him “Doug-E-Slaughter” after his tyrannical behavior when deadlines aren’t met.

Douglas has always been involved in managing technology, starting with his career in the telecommunications industry in 1996 running a Call-Back service. He then entered the world of internet media, with the launch and eventual sale of the HOMEVIEW group of websites.

As a graduate of St. Anthony’s College in Diego Martin, Trinidad, he learnt that hard work and dedication pays off. He likes running, liming, reading (The Economist is his favourite magazine) and eating Sushi!

Richelle Persad - Account Manager
Client Services Manager
We don't grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges. Every day at Webfx is a new challenge that allows me to grow in a different way every time.

Richelle Persad is the Client Services Manager at Webfx. She has a Bachelors degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from Florida International University and her MBA in Marketing from Florida Atlantic University.

She also had some experience working at Digicel Trinidad, Hyatt Place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Trump International Sonesta Beach Resort in Miami, Florida.

Richelle’s dedicated years of service to Webfx and her pleasant nature has helped her to maintain a great relationship with her clients, but her timeliness and efficiency make it easy. Richelle loves yoga, listening to music while cooking, having a glass of wine…or 4 with her girls, making a fool out of herself with her nephews and feeling unconditional love in her marriage every day.

Applications Development
Manager
Webfx is a place where I’m not just relegated to the technical side of things because I’m the ‘programmer guy’. I’m often encouraged to exercise my creative muscle and come up with novel suggestions and solutions to problems.

Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. These words epitomize David Hamilton who is an Applications Development Manager at Webfx, yet still considers creativity his greatest asset. David possesses a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Management from the University of the West Indies and has over thirteen years of experience in Software Development with expertise in mobile application development, web development, front-end development, database design and cloud development.

When he’s not helping save the world at Webfx, David can be found reading, writing books and the occasional article, playing video games or making music as a Rapso artist called Da Face. If you can’t find him there, you definitely will find him on the basketball court where he welcomes all challengers.

Associate Creative Director
Working at WebFx has definitely shaped me into a more well-rounded and agile strategist and marketer. The organisation's focus on transforming business through digital solutions for clients across the Caribbean has fundamentally expanded the breadth of my experience - both professionally and personally.

By day, Anton is a brand strategist, and by night he fancies himself a Carnival costume designer. He started his career in advertising many years ago as a bright-eyed intern in the strategy dept of an advertising agency and never looked back. He believes in the power of storytelling, and unearthing the value that sound cohesive strategy can provide to a client. The surest way to get him to accomplish something is by telling him he can’t do it!

Carnival is his biggest love – both the festival itself as well as design elements in it. There is simply something different about that time of the year, and as a designer, it is a unique joy to watch your vision come to life with hundreds of masqueraders blissfully enjoy themselves wearing something you dreamed about for months before!
