Dotcom tycoon uses Chameleon

British entrepreneur Ajaz Ahmed, the founder of ­Freeserve and one of the best-known faces of the dotcom boom, has brought in Chameleon PR for his latest project.

Ahmed, who ran Freeserve when it listed for £1.2m in 1999 before being sold to Wanadoo (now Orange) for £1.6bn in 2001, will launch the online service in the forthcoming weeks.

Ahmed, based in Huddersfield, gave the brief to Chameleon after hearing of the launch of its Manchester office (PRWeek, 14 July).

Chameleon, headed by MD Helen Holland, will work on the launch of the currently under-wraps venture. It plans to use Ahmed's profile to raise awareness.
