PORTLAND, Ore., April 8 /PRNewswire/ — Site9, Inc., developer of the industry’s fastest growing collaborative prototyping tool for websites and web apps, today announced that it expanded the executive team and also secured additional growth capital. The moves come in preparation for ProtoShare’s accelerated growth in the website and web application development market.
Charlie Burrows was elected to the Board of Directors and appointed as acting COO. His primary focus will be to rapidly expand the global distribution strategy. Mr. Burrows comes from the software and financial services industries and brings with him 30 years of senior management experience. “What attracted me to Site9 was the people and its product, ProtoShare. The company is very well positioned to ride the interactive prototyping wave. ProtoShare’s unique combination of product attributes against price effectiveness have made it the fastest growing prototyping tool in the industry,” said Burrows.
Josh K. Chaney, formerly the Director of Sales, was promoted to Vice President of Sales. He’ll oversee the national and global sales of the ProtoShare software. Prior to joining Site9 in October 2008, Mr. Chaney spent eight years in technology sales and sales management in the Bay Area. “I look forward to taking on this expanded role at Site9,” said Chaney. “The rapid growth we’ve experienced over the past year reflects the interactive market’s need for a more efficient and collaborative process. A large part of my role will be to build awareness and give teams a chance to experience the difference for themselves.”
To further growth through increased marketing and sales, Site9’s existing investors provided the company additional growth capital. Burrows, Chaney, and Site9 Marketing VP, Blake Johnson, are working together on an aggressive new marketing campaign that includes a complete corporate branding refresh as well as an increased international presence.
“The new executive additions and the growth capital position us for a great 2010,” said Andrew Mottaz, Site9 CEO. “It’s exciting seeing how quickly the interactive industry adopts ProtoShare once they’ve used it and seen the value. As a result, getting ProtoShare in front of more people through marketing and sales is where we want to put our focus this year.”
