When asked about this acquisition Chris Winfield said, “I have known and worked with the team at Voltier for about 4 years (that’s actually 28 in Internet time!) and I have always been so impressed by what they come up with. They are some of the most creative and inventive people I have ever known. They fit the ‘BlueGlass mold’ perfectly and we really wanted them to become a part of our team. With a little persistence, we were able to make it happen.”
BlueGlass, which formed in 2010, has been acquiring several key people that may play into the Voltier acquisition. Both Andrew Norcross and Richard Zwicky have been brought in in the last 6 weeks. Andrew is the new senior WordPress developer and Richard, the new Chairman of the Board, has an extensive analytics background and is an entrepreneur that has successfully built enterprises in the retail, technology, and online marketing spaces.
When you look at the combination of recent acquisitions I think it is obvious that BlueGlass is making a solid effort at becoming a company that offers everything a business could possibly need – well-coded websites, SEO, Social Media and a wide selection of content marketing options.
According to TechCrunch Voltier’s entire six person team will immediately be moving to BlueGlass’s headquarters in Tampa, Florida. BlueGlass has recently moved into a new office building in Tampa and currently has offices in Tampa, New York, Los Angeles and Australia.
