After launching last week, WebKite, a content management and vertical search platform, is proud to announce the hire of Peter Meulbroek as our new Chief Technology Officer.

Pittsburgh, PA (Sharewellnewswire.com) August 9, 2012 - Previously, Meulbroek has held leadership positions at Yahoo!, Lockerz, DimensionU, and Adkeeper in product development and infrastructure. As WebKite continues to grow, Meulbroek will help with all things technical, including scaling needs, building out the tech team, and making the WebKite platform flexible, fast, and feature-rich for oncoming clients.

“Since we’ve launched we’ve been approached by a number of clients who want to use our service,” WebKite founder Eric Silver said. “We owe it to our clients to provide a scalable solution to their needs, and that’s something Peter will facilitate. We may not know exactly what the future brings, but we know for sure we’ll be prepared for it.”

Meulbroek is a proven leader who has built organizations and brought practical large scale technical solutions to market. As CTO at Lockerz, Meulbroek’s team delivered a product that scaled to millions of uniques per month, then rebuilt the platform in six weeks to handle traffic hundreds of times larger than Lockerz’s most optimistic forecasts. As Vice President of Engineering at Adkeeper, Meulbroek expanded a four person team to twenty-four people over six months, delivering an ad tech platform that served several billion impressions per month.

“I’m very excited to join the WebKite team and contribute where I can,” Meulbroek said. “The idea of allowing users to build their own vertical search engine and data-centric content management platform is fascinating. Helping to sculpt and build that technology is something I couldn’t pass up.”

WebKite puts the user in control of their data and provides a platform to help their content soar. Never before has it been so easy and intuitive to build a site around structured data or enter the vertical search market.
