BaseKit, the easy to use platform for creating websites from a Photoshop design without coding is expanding its management team with Bruce Storrie.
Bruce joins BaseKit today as Head of Engineering and brings with him over 17 years of experience to the table, after playing a major role in “On Demand Distribution”, a start-up acquired by Nokia Group in 2008 and providing technical due diligence to Eden Ventures and Technical Project Management to the BBC.
Storrie says: “I’m really excited to be working with a high calibre team with a great track record and an innovative service. We have the opportunity to truly revolutionize the web-building industry and transform the experience of anyone who want to build a website.”
Juan Lobato, BaseKit’s CEO added: “Bruce is joining us at the right time as we’re focusing on expanding our business and scaling up our platform.”
Storrie’s recent move confirms the expansion of the BaseKit management team with the introduction earlier this year of Ryan Kiskis, as Head of Product. Kiskis joined the BaseKit team in January to focus on product development and guide BaseKit through its first commercialisation. Kiskis previously helped growing companies with product management, business development and strategy in Silicon Valley, including Martini Media, when he was founding CEO, Venrock Associates and Xfire, the leading online community of gamers acquired by MTV Networks.
BaseKit is a smart and fast way to create websites from Photoshop designs or design templates without having to code. The company is based in London and was founded in 2008. BaseKit is backed by Eden Ventures, NESTA and Seedcamp. For more information, please visit http://www.basekit.com.
