“Automattic is creating the operating system for the web, from websites to ecommerce to social networks,” saidĀ Matt Mullenweg, founder and CEO of Automattic and cofounder of WordPress. “As we zoom past 1,100 employees in over 70 countries, we wanted a financial leader with experience taking businesses from hundreds of millions in revenue to billions and even tens of billions, as Mark has. I’m excited about working alongside such an experienced leader day-to-day to build one of the defining technology companies of this era.”

Nobody ever achieved anything significant by dreaming small dreams. I love the audacity of Matt Mullenweg.
