Guy Spriggs, Coach.

Guy Spriggs is founder of Ramillas, a business coach and consultant, working with online businesses. He’s an international tech entrepreneur who has created successful companies since 1995. From startup to exit and everything in between.

In the UK, Guy co-founded and managed the expansion of Loot magazines (a “huge, eclectic, pre-digital marketplace for selling stuff”).

In the Netherlands, he created a web software company for classified marketplace services. In 2002 he pivoted the marketplace business into Schoolbank.nl, a Dutch social network for finding old school friends. It became the third biggest website in the Netherlands and the first one to have the audacity to charge for its online services, which led to it being a highly profitable business, later sold to a big publishing company.

In Spain, he pivoted a struggling e-commerce platform into Hamlovers.com, the main online supplier of gourmet Spanish ham to the whole of Europe. Its prestigious customer list includes many VIP clients.

And in the USA, he expanded the Hamlovers business to serve customers in USA and Canada. He sold his stake in Hamlovers in 2015.

Throughout his career, Guy has coached his partners, co-workers, managers and engineers.

With Ramillas, Guy now advises small and medium size business owners. Specialising in online services, with a focus on growth strategies, managing change (“pivot“) and online business models.

Guy also has extensive experience in international expansion, sales and marketing, team motivation, mergers and acquisitions.

He speaks English, French, Dutch and Spanish and works online with international clients from offices in Barcelona.
