On January 31, 2018 iThemes joined the Liquid Web family.
In that time, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know their entire executive team, including their CEO Jim Geiger, CTO Joe Oesterling and CFO Terry Flood, among others. I’ve been impressed with their deep experience and expertise, as well as with their vision for WordPress and WordPress hosting that is innovative, bold and exciting. They’re also great people.
Additionally, Liquid Web has a stellar reputation in the hosting industry, a growing and talented WordPress team led by my friend, Chris Lema, and we share many of the values and principles that have made iThemes successful over the last 10 years.
Through many conversations during past two years, it was obvious that Liquid Web’s work in Managed WordPress and Managed WooCommerce hosting, side-by-side with our iThemes software development talent and essential WordPress products, could combine to be a huge win for everyone.
In the past, the one thing missing from the iThemes product lineup that is so critical to our products and customers is quality WordPress hosting. And the one thing Liquid Web needs to make an even better product is our WordPress products. We’ve commonly referred to this as the “1 + 1 = 3” equation.
