Kentico Software (http://www.kentico.com), a Web content management system vendor, has opened an office in Wokingham, Berkshire, UK to further empower their position in the British and Irish markets.

With more than 1200 implementations and 180 solution partners in the UK and Ireland, Kentico is already a leading CMS provider. Some major websites in the region, that are powered by Kentico CMS, include Ireland.ie, Jameson Irish Whiskey, O2 Blueroom, McDonalds Ireland, Royal Horticultural Society, Bank of Ireland, The Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford and British Airline Pilots’ Association.

Kentico operations in the UK will be led by James Tait, who joins Kentico as a Director of Business Development. He is responsible for key business development initiatives, provides input for future development of Kentico CMS, and maintains strategic alliance partnerships. He brings 16 years of experience in Enterprise Software Sales, the last 14 of which have been with web content management companies. His previous positions include pre-sales consultant, partner manager and sales manager with eBusiness Technologies, Tridion, and most recently with RedDot then OpenText.

“Kentico customers and partners have great things to say about the product and the company. I'm excited to join a company that is already well known in the UK and Ireland, and to work with such an enthusiastic team of partners to continue the rapid growth of the company,” comments James Tait, Kentico Director of Business Development in the UK. “Kentico’s growth in the market has not only been fast paced, but is entirely self-funded through successful customer projects with the support of our partners; as such, this provides a robust platform for future growth and operations.”

“Since establishment of our company back in 2004, UK and Ireland represent key markets with continuous growth. Opening a UK office was an obvious step in our commitment to work closely with our UK and Irish partners and clients,” says Petr Palas, Kentico founder and CEO. “We are happy that James Tait has joined our team since his experience will help us strengthen our position in the UK and Ireland.”
