About Codebase Consulting

A brief history of Codebase

Codebase was setup in 2016 by Adam, Neil and Richard to provide what we believe is a rare combination of skills and services in the IT industry, Web Engineering and IT Support.

The three of us previously worked at Clever4, a web agency in Hull that provided web design and development services for over 16 years. We’re proud to say that many of our clients transferred their business to us when Clever4 closed its doors in 2016.

We work with over 30 long term clients in industries ranging from retail to transport and banking to education. Although we’re based in Yorkshire, we have clients from all over the UK and several in France and Italy.

Here's a bit more information about the team...

Contact Adam

Adam learned his trade serving in the Royal Navy, keeping the computers and networks of a Type 45 Destroyer working 24 hours a day.

After 9 years in the Navy, Adam gave up a life on the high seas and now uses his skills to provide businesses with managed IT support services and stories of life on the ocean wave.

Adam is a Gemini and drives a hot hatch. So hot in fact that it is in the garage for repairs almost every week.

Another alumni of the mighty Hull University, Rich graduated in 1999 with a degree in Computer Science and Information Engineering. He's spent all of his career building and managing databases and web applications for the UK's biggest banks.

There's nothing Rich loves more than coming up with elegant solutions to complicated engineering problems (well, maybe a pint of real ale or a day's fishing might come close).
