Communities, WordPress, and now SiteGround too – that is what I do and love!

Photo by Roberto Cortese

This September I joined the SiteGround team. This was a move from freelancing to working for a big company. I was a little anxious about such a serious change. However, it actually felt like quite a natural development. Now, as part of the SiteGround team, I will spend even more time doing what I truly love - being actively involved with the WordPress community. For the past few years I have organized regular WordPress meetups and a WordCamp in my hometown - Torino, Italy. I have also participated in the organization of WordCamp Europe. Now I will continue to be part of these and even more WordPress events. I will keep sharing my experience and volunteering with my time for the WordPress community. What is new is that I will also be part of one of the most amazing teams I have previously only met at WordCamps -- the people of SiteGround. Read below to see how I've ended up here and what is coming.

My First Work (& Kite Boarding) Week as CMO of SiteGround

Last week was my first as CMO of SiteGround. Joining a new company, I had to learn a lot: its history, goals and challenges; business processes and everyday hacks. I wanted to become a real part of the organization and start contributing to its success as soon as possible. That said, I was expecting to spend my first week in meeting rooms and office tours. Oddly enough, I got to spend it on a Greek island instead, where my team-to-be was working remotely and learning to kiteboard. Ultimately, we all got back with a lot more than new surf skills and a suntan. Here is what my first week taught me about the company, and about working and managing a diverse team in a new field.
