I must start this post with a sincere thank-you to the entire Magento community – customers, partners, developers and employees. You have all played an instrumental role in the remarkable growth we have experienced over the past year. We forecast a 300 percent growth in sales in 2010 with over 60,000 live Magento sites around the world built for the world’s best brands, the largest retailers and ecommerce innovators. To support this explosive growth we now have over 180 employees worldwide dedicated to supporting this growth trajectory.

Today, we are very proud to announce the appointment of Michel Goossens as vice president and general manager of Magento’s EMEA operations and Jary Carter as vice president of N. America sales operations. Michel and Jary bring extensive industry experience and knowledge to Magento and both are strong and innovative leaders.

Michel joins us from Red Hat, where he was vice president EMEA of the organization’s JBoss division and Jary comes to us from Alfresco (open source enterprise content management software) where he was the Americas director of channels. You can seem more details in the press release below.

All of us here are very excited about Magento’s growth and are focused on our mission of 'enabling the ecommerce ecosystem' and driving your success with Magento.
