Chief Happiness Officer
Brad is the founder of GoWP and he's the team's guiding light. Not only does he have over 20 years of web experience, but he lives and breathes our mission: to create happiness.
He's hands-on and always has our number one goal in mind: To deliver exceptional service and lead a team that knows how to do just that.
He's been working with WordPress since 2009 and is the co-lead organizer of WordCamp Atlanta and coordinator of the North Fulton WordPress Meetup.
When he's not following up with customers and engaging the local WordPress community, he's spending time with his wife and daughter or watching the Tar Heels, or both.
Director, WordPress Maintenance
Lucas has been developing WordPress themes and plugins since 2010, so it's only natural that he's our go-to guy when it comes to top-notch maintenance of your WordPress site. Not to mention, he's been with GoWP since before we were even GoWP. Long story short: He knows what's up and we'd be lost without him.
Lucas is a Canadian ex-pat whose beard still smells of maple, despite his years in the USA. He's married to a hoosier with two children and between home life and keeping GoWP services running smoothly, his life never has a dull moment.
Could it be all this that lead TIME Magazine to name him Person of the Year in 2006? Maybe. Or maybe not. Wait, did they?
Manager, WordPress support
Daniel has been with GoWP for four years and he's the heart and soul of our support services. Did we mention he's exceptional at it? His reviews from our customers are always like, "Daniel does it again!" "Where would we be without Daniel?!" "Daniel you're my hero!" Basically, you're in great hands with Daniel.
He's currently training to be a Happiness Legend, the highest level a happiness engineer can reach, a level that has yet to be reached by anyone.
In his free time Daniel enjoys CrossFit, traveling and anything else the world can throw at him. Except for pointy sticks and small rocks, he mostly dodges those.
Act, learn and improve — that's Emily's mantra and she's been applying it to GoWP's marketing strategy since September 2018.
She comes to us from sunny and beautiful Barcelona, Spain, although she's originally from Ohio. In Barcelona, she worked in the tech world handling marketing, branding and content strategy for some of the city's most successful startups.
When she's not implementing growth strategies for GoWP, she enjoys spending time in nature with her husband Marc and young daughter Ivette.
Chris is our Johnny-on-the-spot when those support requests start piling up. He's got more than 6 years of WordPress development experience and has been collaborating with GoWP over the past year.
Chris really enjoys the team dynamic because it gives him the opportunity to learn new and better ways of tackling common problems. And GoWP loves having him on the team for the same reason!
Executive Happiness bot
Presston embodies everything GoWP is behind the scenes.
Sure, our happiness engineers handle the requests and offer a more personal touch. But Presston keeps his cyclopean eye on things behind the scenes, around the clock.
If a problem arises on your site, Presston knows about it immediately and alerts the happiness forces that be.
Overall, Presston is awesome.
