Getahead Online – The Management

Joanna Dabrowska (MBA) –  Managing Director



Joanna combines strong entrepreneurial vision with a solid background in business and technology.

She holds a post-graduate business qualification (Executive MBA) from Institut Francais de Gestion and several IT, sales & marketing qualifications, including Internet Marketing Diploma from Dublin Business School.

She has been furthering her online marketing education by learning from some of the best internet marketing experts in the world, participating in forums and running her own internet marketing projects.

Her interest in Web Design and Online Marketing was sparked by the sheer frustration of trying to design her new company website in 2007.  She ended up with a website that was very pretty, but not very useful in terms of sales. It was not generating any traffic and a year later it wasn’t even indexed.

She realised that it was a common problem – very few web designers had any SEO or online marketing experience. She therefore decided to launch a one-stop-shop online marketing consultancy that offered everything small businesses might need to promote their products and services successfully online.

Joanna, in her spare time, helps local charity – International Charity Bazaar, travels to exotic destinations, reads voraciously (even the back of milk cartons) and stares at the sunsets at her local beach. She loves wildlife and the unpredictability of the African bush.


Mark Davenport – Technical Director



Mark has been involved in software development and small business management since the early 80’s. His area of expertise includes printing and publishing, off-line advertising, MLM marketing,  web design, PHP & HTML programming and search engine optimization.

Mark also runs a successful online business directory in Scotland and publishes local advertising booklets, which are distributed to over 15 000 households in Falkirk area.

Mark is responsible for all our PHP scripts, HTML code fixes and solving technical problems eveyone else if afraid to touch. He can usually find a solution to most technical problems, so he is always in high demand. In fact, we usually lock him in the office and pass pizzas through a narrow gap under his door. We guard him with our lives, and make sure that someone watches over him whenever he crosses the road.

Mark has a wicked sense of humour and a “twisted” mind (he solves cryptic clues crosswords for fun!). When we let him slip away, he plays squash, travels to exotic destinations, scuba dives, sails and canoes. He used to play violin in his heyday, but we begged him on our hands and knees not to drag it out of the basement.
