This month doesn’t just mark the end of a year; it marks the end of the decade. Pressable has been through a lot in the last 10 years. We’ve been through migrations, service improvements, new team members, WordCamps, and new leadership…wait, that was just this year! What a crazy ride it’s been. Let’s take a look and see what all we accomplished in 2019.
2019 kicked off in high gear as the Pressable team packed up their bags and headed for the Texas Hill Country for our annual meetup. While there, we planned out our year, from affiliate deals to promotions, platform changes and everything in between. We worked. We collaborated. And of course, we partied. We also got to spend some time with some of our great clients, like Shephards Loft, Organic Themes, DigiBoost, Aspen Grove Studio, DevelApp, and Not Always Right.
Migration to PressableEdge
Possibly our biggest achievement this year was the migration from our old servers to our new server infrastructure, PressableEdge. It scales better, it runs faster, is more secure, and is built by the same WordPress experts that host WordPress.com and WordPress VIP. The migration went off without too many hiccups, and we’re so glad that you all are still here to see how great the new servers are.

Growing Our Team and Services
This year, we’ve grown like we never imagined. Our support team welcomed new team members from across the globe, allowing us to achieve our goal of 24/7 support. If you’re interested in learning more about our goal of 24/7 support, check out our ebook on the road to 24/7 customer success.
New Leadership at Pressable
In addition to growing our support team, we also got a new captain at the wheel. If you haven’t met already, meet Alex Kombos, Pressable’s new Chief Executive Officer. Alex brings with him extensive leadership experience in growth marketing, founding and leading SaaS companies to greatness for the better part of two decades.

We Love WordCamps!
We’d have to take off our shoes to count all the WordCamps we attended this year, and we plan on getting to even more camps across the world in 2020. Some of our favorite moments?
Getting tropical with our friends WeGlot at WordCamp San Jose.
Flying almost 5,000 miles to get from New Zealand to WordCamp Iloilo.
Hanging with friends at WordCamp Denver.
Taking a much needed break and enjoying a hike before WordCamp Seattle.
We’ve got huge plans for 2020, and we can’t wait to share them with you! Stay tuned for big things coming in the new year, but for now, enjoy the last day of the year, the last day of the decade. Here’s to you, our awesome Pressable customers. We wouldn’t be here without you!
