About Gandy-Draper

We are Alan Gandy and Elle Draper, the team behind the name. This page will tell you a little about us.

Honesty and integrity are vital to our business, and so we do not hide behind cartoons and memes as so many Web Designers do.

We are exactly who you see – warts an’ all. Sorry about that!

We are not geeks. We are seasoned business professionals who understand the pressures of running a business.

Elle and Alan - Peñiscola 2023

Our Team

Elle Draper


Elle is now the sole proprietor of Gandy-Draper. This is because Alan has kicked off his “work boots” early.

Elle’s background lies predominantly in sales and marketing as well as recruitment, administration, operations and customer service. Elle reached senior managerial level before leaving the UK in 2006 for a new life in the sun.

Elle is Gandy-Draper clients’ point of contact and her dedication to excellent customer service is consistently described as “outstanding”. A “workaholic”, Elle consistently fails to reduce her working hours… preferring instead to ensure her clients are happy.

Elle enjoys spending time with Alan, as well as cooking, walking and the occasional (cough) dry white wine. She is also well known among her friends and clients for her endless obsession with Doctor Who.

She is also the author of The Spain Buddy Recipe book which makes Spanish cooking easy, even for novices.

Alan Gandy

Former Co-CEO

Alan has taken early retirement but we have left his information below – just so you know who he is!

Alan has a wealth of IT, PR and marketing, and general management experience having worked previously in the web design and multimedia, marketing and electronics industries, mostly at Director level.

Previously Alan provided consultancy across a number of industries around the globe, enabling businesses to make the best use of their budgets, whilst raising their profiles professionally and effectively. He is now enjoying his return to professional photography and fine art.

His heart resides in Spain where he enjoys spending quality time with Elle, reminiscing about their former three doggies and getting out to explore / photograph Spain’s diverse and beautiful scenery.

In 2012 he published his first book, “Walking the Canary Islands”, detailing his walk for charity across the seven largest Canary Islands.
