WP Engine today announced a $15 million investment from North Bridge Growth Equity.
WP Engine, the premium managed hosting platform for websites and applications built with WordPress, today announced the appointment of Heather Brunner as CEO.
There has been some incredible talent joining WP Engine lately. First it was Nick Daines, who headed up Rackspace’s famous customer support program. Now it’s Heather Brunner, former COO for Bazaarvoice.
In the big world of Wordpress blogs there are those big ones on the high end (Techcrunch) where a paid staff can provide all the help you need. On the low end, hosted Wordpress is perfect for many. But what about the middle? In that big middle ground you want to customize Wordpress just enough that they can’t host it for you, but you’re not big enough to afford someone to main your blog and apply the latest updates and plug potential security holes.
