New Team Members

This month, we have three new additions to our WDS family to announce. Meet Lead Engineers, Krystal Metzler and Darren Cooney, and Project Manager, Daniel Lama. You’ll have the chance to meet them more in-depth in a future blog post. For now, take a look at how our team has grown.

Media Mentions

Our WordPress agency got some great media coverage recently. First, we were featured in the article “WebDevStudios Helps Businesses Make the Most of Their WordPress Investments With a Suite of Value-Added Services” at HostingAdvice.com. Then, Brad was the featured interview in an article published at WPCity. Take a look at both of these informative pieces today.

We love participating in these types of articles and interviews, or sharing our expertise with interested reporters. Would you like to feature WDS or one of our team members on your blog? Contact us and let’s talk about it.
