Kumar Vora Joins Acrolinx as CEO, Opens New US Headquarters in Silicon Valley

Santa Clara, California – December 19, 2013 - Acrolinx announced today that Kumar Vora has joined the company as CEO. In addition, the company announced the opening of its new US headquarters in San Jose, California.

Vora brings 25 years of experience in the software industry at Oracle, Adobe, Apple, HP, and others. Immediately prior to joining Acrolinx, he served as Entrepreneur in Residence at Foundation Capital, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. And as co-founder of Oblix, a developer of internet security software acquired by Oracle in 2005, Vora led all aspects of the product including product strategy and product development.

“With our innovative linguistic technology and impressive customer list, Acrolinx presents an irresistible opportunity,” commented Vora. “We’ve entered an era where companies compete for visibility and customer attention based on the engagement and information value of the content they deliver. As a result, content quality matters more than ever, and Acrolinx plays a leading role in helping our customers elevate themselves above their competitors.”

Acrolinx’s lead investor, Christian Janson-Euterneck, Managing Partner, ViewPoint Capital Partners, said, “Kumar has an impressive track record of building successful products and profitable businesses in companies of all sizes. We see great potential in Acrolinx and believe Kumar is a perfect fit to lead the company to realize its full potential.”

“As one of the founders of Acrolinx,” observed Andrew Bredenkamp, “I couldn’t be happier that Kumar has joined us. We now have an unbeatable blend of Kumar’s executive and strategic leadership, along with the capabilities of our team and our products. The next few years should prove quite exciting.”

With executives in both the U.S. and Europe, Acrolinx now maintains dual headquarters in Berlin, Germany, and new offices in San Jose, California. Remarking on this change, Vora said, “We’re a global leadership team with Silicon Valley expertise and German engineering – a great combination for our company and our customers.”

Acrolinx Named to EContent 100 for 2013-2014!

Santa Clara, California – December 2, 2013 Acrolinx announced today that EContent magazine selected Acrolinx for their 2013-2014 list of top 100 digital content companies.

Acrolinx helps organizations create content that builds customer relationships through language that’s warmer, simpler, and easier to understand. The company’s content optimization software guides authors by flagging problems that affect readability, consistency, tone of voice, and findability.

“In 2013, our task was to narrow down the ever expanding list of important players in the digital content industry to a mere 100 companies that matter most, a task that is becoming harder every year,” said Theresa Cramer, editor of EContent. “Consequently, the companies that do make up our list can be sure that they are in good company—and that next year, there will be a new crop of companies biting at their heels. This is great for the industry, and exciting for those of us who cover the space.”

The EContent 100 List can be seen at www.econtentmag.com and in the December 2013 issue of EContent.

Andrew Bredenkamp, founder and president of Acrolinx, said, “We’re proud to be selected for the EContent 100 for the second year in a row. As a provider of software that helps companies build better relationships through better language, we play a nearly unique role in the digital content industry. And it’s exciting to be on the same list with companies like Adobe, Apple, Google, SDL and Sitecore.”
