Wow, what a whirlwind few weeks it has been…
I’m going to let you in on a little secret – I’m no longer with Appirio. We’re still buds and wish each other well. But I’m not here to talk about that. I’m here to talk about Trekbin.
This story really started in 2006 at Infowelders. I was running development projects on the emerging (at the time) Force.com platform and had the pleasure of working with a number of India-based developers and development managers who were learning quickly along with me. I felt at the time that what we were doing was groundbreaking. Two guys that I had worked with and respected most – Santosh Prasad and Srinivas Rao – formed Trekbin so that they could focus solely on Salesforce and Force.com.
In 2011, my professional relationship with Santosh and Srinivas was briefly interrupted by the acquisition of Infowelders. But Santosh and Srinivas continued to build a team laser focused on delivering innovative solutions on the Salesforce platform, and they have many great success stories of their own to tell. This is how we get to now.
As of July 7, 2014, I have a new role as a partner at Trekbin. Sounds grown-up, but I’m writing this at home in my pajamas to maintain some street cred. And I didn’t come here alone. For any of you that have read the previous chapter, you know that I think Adam Wiebe is a pretty special dude. He’s also joining Trekbin as a partner and will head up our sales and business development efforts.
So, now you know the backstory…but why did we do it, and why now?
Finding and retaining great Salesforce developers is difficult and expensive, especially at scale. We want to change the way you think about running projects and teams developing on the Force.com platform. If you are a Salesforce customer or AppExchange or consulting partner, we want to help you deliver innovation and scale on-demand like no one else. How do we do that?
By being SKILLFUL, RESPONSIVE, and IMAGINATIVE – and most importantly focused on Salesforce and Force.com.
We’re only beginning this next chapter, so there will be much more to come. Until then, if you want to get in touch about a partnership or anything else, shoot us a note, or reach out on Twitter and Facebook.
I can’t wait to see where this story goes…
