A YORK web company founded as the UK economy balanced on the brink of recession is celebrating ten years in business.

See Green is run by husband and wife duo Dan and Anne Taylor, and after a decade in businesses now boasts a team of six staff working from dedicated offices in Clifton Moor.

Mr Taylor made the move set up on his own in 2008, handing his notice in at the Leeds-based agency where he worked on the same day Mrs Taylor told him she was pregnant with their first child.

Initially Mr Taylor ran See Green from home while Mrs Taylor looked after their daughter Abigail.

Mr Taylor said: “It was an interesting time, finding new clients and becoming a new dad - it certainly motivated me to get work in.”

After maternity leave, Mrs Taylor made the decision to join See Green joining fellow director David Forster.

The company moved into York’s Eco Business Centre, a hub for small and start up businesses, before moving into their own premises on Marsden Park, Clifton Moor.

The team now stands at six, and See Green is currently looking to expand further.

Mrs Taylor, who is also chairwoman of York Professionals, said: “We’ve had a successful ten years in business, and it’s quite a milestone to achieve.

“Starting a business in 2008 was always going to be challenging, and even more so with both of us running our own business.

“In the past ten years we’ve had another daughter, Edith, now six. Dan had surgery to remove his stomach to avoid genetic cancer, we’ve grown our portfolio, completed more than 1,200 projects for our clients, we manage more than 500 domain names and regularly have more than a million people visiting websites we’ve created each day, which isn’t bad going really.”

See Green is hosting a party for clients, partners and friends in September and the business has recently completed its tenth pro bono charity website, for Canterbury Imagine, a book gifting charity in Bradford which ensures children in deprived areas of the city receive a book a month.
