Commercial Director, Bowen Craggs & Co
Dan Drury has over 17 years experience of Internet and software technologies. In 1993 Dan founded a software company that developed operational risk management tools using the latest database and Internet technologies.
In 2001 he founded a leading enterprise-class web analytics software company that specialised in understanding online behaviour. That company was merged with the UK’s leading usability organisation to create a customer experience company that now counts more than half of the FTSE100 among its clients.
In 2004 Dan joined Bowen Craggs as commercial director, building the company’s global client base to include more than 50 Fortune 500 clients.

Bowen Craggs also manages a global "Web Effectiveness Network" of more than 300 online professionals from 26 countries who share best practice on operational and strategic issues.
