Pixel Jar is Being Acquired


We are incredibly thrilled to announce that Jeffrey and I will be joining the new Crowd Favorite. We’re excited about the opportunity to work with Karim, Alex, and the rest of the team.

The official announcement is below:

VeloMedia is almost complete with its acquisition of Crowd Favorite. As previously announced, the new combined entity will continue with the Crowd Favorite brand, and be run by VeloMedia’s CEO, Karim Marucchi. Alex King will step into the role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Both Karim and Alex are excited to announce additional news. Today, they’ve entered into formal negotiations to acquire Pixel Jar – bringing both Brandon Dove and Jeffrey Zinn into the new Crowd Favorite family.

Pixel Jar is well known in the WordPress community, having contributed to multiple versions of WordPress as well as organizing WordCamp Orange County. This makes formal an existing relationship; VeloMedia and Pixel Jar have collaborated on previous projects, including working on one of the world’s largest automaker’s web presence.

Making the acquisition even more interesting is the addition of AdSanity, Pixel Jar’s premium plugin for ads, to the existing arsenal of Crowd Favorite products. It further develops a product-orientation for this service boutique. Under Alex’s leadership, and with continued investment by Brandon, Jeffrey and the rest of the team, Crowd Favorite will continue to release customer and project-based products for their enterprise customers.
