Sridhar Katakam has joined the iThemes team as a full time support moderator. After starting as a part time moderator only months ago, Katakam has joined their team full time starting this month.
iThemes founder Cory Miller shares the story of how Katakam came to iThemes:
Sridhar came to us initially early this year as an iThemes Builder customer … who we noticed was giving stellar support help for fellow community members so we quickly approached him to work with us in a part-time role.
Fast forward to toward to today, with thousands of support posts in our forum and numerous customers helped, he is now able to devote his full-time energy and attention to our work at iThemes, PluginBuddy and WebDesign.com.
