Imagely, a leading provider of WordPress products and services for photographers, announced seasoned investor and entrepreneur Nathan Singh as the new owner and CEO. Singh brings substantial knowledge of the WordPress gallery plugin market and a deep appreciation for photography and photographers.
His technical background includes work as a software engineer at Boeing, as well as the founding and building of several successful companies outside of WordPress including Inkless Ideas (acquired in 2014) and OrdersIn (acquired in 2017). In 2018, he acquired Envira Gallery, one of the most popular gallery plugins. Imagely and Envira Gallery are now under a single umbrella with all the additional reach that entails.
“We are bringing together two businesses and teams that not only share similar core values but also share deep expertise and drive for improving how our customers display, manage and sell their work,” he says.
In the coming year, the company says Singh plans to launch new turnkey website services, a WordPress.com for photographers. The Imagely Sites platform, as it will be called, is currently being beta tested. With this platform, photographers will be able to create an account at Imagely and get an instant, beautiful WordPress website with all the functionality they need.
“I’m looking forward to working with the Imagely community and ensuring the product, customer and team’s continued success. With all of our combined years of experience in the image gallery space, it’ll be awesome to see what we’ll be able to achieve for photographers,” he says. “We also want to reassure our existing users and customers that we won’t be changing anything significant for now with respect to memberships, accounts, or pricing.”
