It all started with a great idea and a desire to be the best.
Locassa is the brainchild of Simon and James, two keen Apple developers with an eye for detail. Having come from broader development backgrounds, they bring a more structured approach to iOS development, something generally lacking in this market.
Simon Lee, Founder and CEO
Simon has a wealth of development and management experience in both mobile and internet technologies, having worked for two of the UK´s largest ISP´s. As an innovator and new technology evangelist, Simon is a true end-user of the products and services he develops.
Simon founded Locassa in 2009 and has worked on some of the biggest iPhone and iPad projects around including The Times and The Sun for iPad, the Lucozade iPhone app, work for Universal Music and CMC Markets to name a few.
James Ashton, CTO
James is as talented as he is dedicated. A true iOS end-user he has worked on many of the major Locassa projects since it’s launch in 2009. James has an eye for detail which most other developers miss and is a key member of the Locassa management team.
James loves looking at new ways to interact with iOS devices, pushing the boundaries of how we look at and work with iPhones and iPads. He always brings something fresh to new clients.
Danny Bravo, Rockstar iOS Developer
Danny has grown up travelling through over 35 different countries giving him a unique insight into adaptability and the capacity to think outside the box. He loves mesmerising people with fun, interactive and well integrated mobile user experiences.
His motto being: “Good software comes when you bring together complex functionalities with simple intuitive interfaces”, he has joined Locassa ready to create the next generation of rockstar apps with the experienced, creative, and well integrated family that we are.
Jason Lapierre, iOS Developer
Jason is a mobile, design and social network addict. He acquired a strong detail-oriented background in mobile development and user experience by working in and co-founding several start-ups.
Never too far from an iPhone, iPad or any other futuristic device that just came out, he believes in mobile as the future of mankind.Yes. No more, no less.
Dominic Gambetta, UI/UX Designer
Dominic has great passion, love and care for all of the design he creates. With years of background in interactive media and graphic design, Dominic injects this knowledge of user experience and design into all of the apps Locassa create.
Dominic takes great pride in his designs and pushes the capabilities of all iOS devices with gestures and content rich features. He also loves a good strong builders’ brew (no sugars, please).
Jason Brown, UI/UX Designer
Jason is an ideas based designer with high standards and higher expectations. Impossible is not in his vocabulary. Coming from Kingston University his background is in the conceptual and he loves looking at new ways of seeing and doing things on iOS devices.
Jason believes that the user is the most important person in the process of producing a visual experience and most importantly he loves what he does and enjoys face-to-face client involvement with the eclectic client base Locassa has cultivated.
Laurence Lee, Client Manager
Laurence brings to Locassa a wealth of knowledge and experience from a long front facing career in the Public Sector. Believing passionately in great customer service, his skills are always evident and appreciated by clients and colleagues alike. He isn’t a techie but loves technology.
“Dealing with clients is always a pleasure when I know what an awesome experience they are going to have with Locassa.” Laurence isn’t young lets face it but his gentle guiding hand and sense of humour give yet another perspective to the team. He is also the father of the CEO and in that sense, is truly ‘The Daddy’.
