BlazeMeter Expands Into North America to Support Rapid Global Growth

Appoints Former Adobe Senior Manager Ophir Prusak as Senior Vice President Digital Marketing

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- BlazeMeter, provider of the load testing platform for developers, announced today the opening of a US branch in New York City and simultaneously, the appointment of Ophir Prusak as Senior Vice President of Digital Marketing. Both come just one year after BlazeMeter launched and received $1.2 Million in Series A funding from Venture Capital, YL Ventures.

These advancements signal the acceleration of BlazeMeter's already rapid expansion and its increasing integrations within developer communities aimed to address the growing sophistication of developer load testing needs and larger markets.

"We have experienced great growth in our business since our launch last year. We announced two new partnerships, Acquia for Drupal and CloudBees for Jenkins CI. We released several new integrations such as JMeter and Jenkins plugins and a Drupal module. 2013 will see us roll out many more integrations and partnerships," said Alon Girmonsky, BlazeMeter Founder & CEO. "With our new North American office in the heart of New York City, we are poised to reinforce our leading position in the developer community for load testing, and further accelerate our progress into North American markets. Ophir will be a significant catalyst in taking BlazeMeter there. I am delighted he has joined our team."

Prusak brings 18 years' experience of digital marketing, analysis, optimization and implementation to BlazeMeter. Prior to joining BlazeMeter, he worked at Adobe as Senior Optimization Manager improving web sites for companies such as Gilt.com, Toys 'R' Us, Bank of America and other Fortune 100 companies. He also worked at POP (a digital agency) with clients like Nintendo and The Metropolitan Opera.

"I am excited to become part of the fastest growing company in the load testing market and I'm looking forward to accelerating BlazeMeter's growth," said Prusak. "BlazeMeter has an offering that is truly revolutionary for developers that want a complete load testing solution. We have the means to become the de-facto standard for load testing in developer communities and it is a great opportunity for me to enter this arena and help drive and optimize BlazeMeter's development at this crucial stage."
