Our Continuing Commitment to Merchants, Partners, and Developers

Thanks to you, 2013 saw amazing growth across Magento's global merchant, partner and developer ecosystems—not only in the US, but also in Germany, the UK, and throughout the world. Our momentum continues to build this year as we take advantage of the assets of eBay Enterprise and expand investment in our business. Within weeks of its introduction, we're already seeing the eBay Enterprise + Magento Omnichannel Solution gain tremendous adoption.

At Imagine 2014 next month, we will be providing an in-depth look at how we plan to keep up our rapid pace of global growth and create more opportunities for our merchant, developer and partner communities. We will also share more about our plan for Magento 2, as well as how we are building features to allow our partner and developer communities to create new opportunities that ultimately drive merchant growth and innovation.

You may have heard that our head of product, Jimmy Duvall, has left the organization. I want to thank Jimmy for all his contributions over the years. The team and I wish him well in his future endeavors. I am stepping in as interim leader while we actively search for a replacement. Additionally, Ted Pietrzak will be replacing Musaab At-Taras as the interim head of engineering. These leadership changes do not reflect a change in our product or go-to-market strategies. We continue to be laser focused on serving the needs of mid-market retailers by providing the world's most open, flexible, and scalable commerce platform.

There's nothing better than a business built on partnerships. It means you know my team and I are always committed to the success of our merchants, partners and developers because we share common goals. This year you'll see an increased pace of innovation and a set of solutions and services that will consistently be designed to foster growth for all of us. We look forward to sharing more about what the next chapter of Magento looks like at Imagine in Las Vegas!
