Welcome, Jory!

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

In this morning's press release FeedBlitz announced the election of Jory Des Jardins to our Board. A press release is a relatively formal marketing communications instrument, and so I just wanted to take a few moments to welcome her more personally to the firm.

It's often a cliche to say how excited one is about a new Board member or executive joining a company; so much so that you're really not meant to say that kind of thing in this kind of news item. It's all too often so much yadda yadda.

But the thing is, see, I am excited about Jory joining. So to heck with the cliches! She is the ideal complement to Tom and myself and the others in the business. She's wicked smart, of course, a proven entrepreneur - all good things. Crucially, however, she also brings a whole new set of perspectives and values that Tom and I simply can't bring to the leadership of the company by dint of who we are, where we live and our collective experience and interests so far.

Bottom line, as a result of her joining, FeedBlitz just got a whole lot smarter, our perspectives broader, and our thinking bigger. And, as the release says, Jory has had a great deal of influence in our thinking and planning already. No BS. Jory is a pleasure to work with and it's going to be a fun ride.

So, welcome, Jory - and a huge "thank you" to Guy Kawasaki, who introduced us in the first place.
