An Announcement from Stackery
Dear Community and Customers:
Yesterday our founder and CEO Nate Taggart announced his decision to step down from his post. While his presence will be missed by all of us, he made this choice in order for Stackery to bring in a new CEO with the experience and pedigree to steer the business to the next level.
Stackery has continued to build incredible momentum. This is why it makes this the right time to make a change. We are all indebted to Nate for everything he has put into this company and we wish him the best in his next endeavors. His message to the team is below.
Chase, Sam, Abner, and Laura
First off, I’d like to express my profound gratitude to each of you for your many contributions to Stackery, and for helping to make this company a place where each of us have been able to do the best work of our careers. The startup that we’ve built together now works with some of the largest companies in the world and the incredible growth that we’ve seen over the last two quarters is a clear reflection of the value we’ve created for our customers.
This success now affords me an opportunity to step aside so that Stackery can recruit a new leader with experience in scaling a high-growth company. I deeply appreciate the support from our leadership team, board of directors, investors – and most especially, from each of you – to make this decision.
As I prepare to pass the baton, I have one final responsibility as CEO: to ready us for the next phase of growth of the company that we’ve built together. As you’ve already seen, delivering on our performance goals leads to higher expectations and bigger targets. I know that you’ll embrace this challenge – after all, winning is fun and it’s rewarding to see the product we’ve built help so many developers.
As you continue to grow without me, I’d ask you to keep one thing in mind: the way we do it matters. We haven’t gotten here because we’re the cleverest copywriters, the fastest programmers, or the slickest sales people. We don’t work sixteen hour days, and we’re not ruthless or cutthroat. We’re kind. We care about each other. We bring out the best of each other’s strengths, and we bridge each other’s weaknesses. We create opportunities to experiment and take risks. We’re humble. And we’re better for it.
I’m proud of what we’ve done together, but I’m much more proud of how we’ve done it. I’ll continue to root for Stackery and for each and every one of you.
