Financial Director, VP
For the past twelve years, Talia has served the banking financial sector in numerous positions, including personal banking, operations management, and branch management. Her understanding of finance and cost control is what allows Damonaz Designs to offer professional quality website development and marketing services at affordable prices.
“We offer the ability for small business owners to invest confidently in their businesses, by providing quality websites that don’t cause their P&L (Profit & Loss) to go in the red,” says Talia. She also states, “In today’s economy, more and more design companies are having to increase their hourly rates and prices to offset the loss of new business accounts. Here at Damonaz Designs, our focus is on building relationships with our clients, one service at a time. Thus, we are able to establish lasting relationships and never have to raise our prices to offset the lack of new business. We are here for the long-term and we aim to prove it – guaranteed!”
