You may have heard about the changes at Pressable. We’d like to take this opportunity to provide you with more details and describe how upcoming changes will create a bright future for you, our customers.
Vid Luther has resigned from Pressable, and we wish him best of luck. Vid is replaced by our new Interim CEO Chris Lauzon. Chris, as many of you know, was the former Director of Support at WP Engine and has been at Automattic for several years. Chris’ background uniquely positions him to help Pressable during this period of transition. Top priority for all of us is to evolve our infrastructure to better support complex WordPress sites for eCommerce, marketing sites requiring social integration, and custom applications running on the WordPress API. Chris will also work to ensure that we continue to deliver the amazing WordPress support that is the hallmark of the Pressable brand. We’re super excited to have him leading our efforts.
New Resources to Help Pressable Succeed
Automattic has provided Pressable with access to financial resources, expertise, and staff to help us lay a solid foundation for growth. Pressable will remain an independent company and will chart its own course, but we are extremely grateful to the Automattic team for all of their help.
What to Expect
In the months to come we’ll be announcing new infrastructure improvements and a roadmap of new features. Your WordPress sites will run faster and more reliably than ever before, and our team will be positioned to help you manage whatever challenges or opportunities come your way. Please stay tuned for more details, and if you’d like to be one of the first to trial our new infrastructure please reach out to us — we’d love to get your input and support.
