Kentico Road Show Recap

Interview with Karol Jarkovsky, Director of Product

Kentico has recently switched its conference concept from a single traditional annual global event like the 404 Conference, where CMS-Connected was a media sponsor and recorded the CMS-Connected Show with a live audience last year, to a series of one-day events taking place in seven cities across the globe, called Kentico Roadshow. Our very own Venus Tamturk was invited to attend the Boston edition of the 2017 Kentico Roadshow to capture the buzz directly from the event floor, and as the event was winding down Venus was able to get some one on one time with some of the Kentico leadership, check out these interviews with James (Jim) Panagas, Director of PR & Analyst Relations, Petr Palas, Founder & CEO of Kentico and Karol Jarkovsky, Director of Product.

Introducing Sitecore’s new CEO

Sitecore Co-Founder Michael Seifert announced in the beginning of July that he is stepping aside as Sitecore CEO. He’s been working closely with the board of directors to find a new CEO with a perfect balance of technology and transformational experience to lead Sitecore into the future, and he believes they’ve found just that. Introducing Mark Frost, Sitecore’s new CEO.

Frost replaces Michael Seifert, who founded the company in 2001 in Copenhagen, Denmark as a web content management provider primarily serving the Danish market. Mark brings to Sitecore more than 20 years’ experience as an unyielding customer-focused leader in enterprise software companies. Though he started his career as a software engineer at GE, he most recently served as CEO of MarkMonitor, the global leader in enterprise brand protection, where he grew the company to a valuation of $3.55 billion.  Prior to MarkMonitor, Mark held executive positions at various companies ranging from Saba, Peoplesoft, and Documentum, to CA Technologies and GE.

He is looking forward to accelerating Sitecore’s continued strategic direction by delivering customer-focused innovations in web content management, commerce, and digital experience platforms. Above all, Mark wants Sitecore to be your best technology partner—he appreciates the value of our partner community and is committed to our joint success.
