Hi! I’m Mario Peshev and I am the CEO of DevriX.
Along with DevriX, I also run GrowthShuttle, Premium WP Support and work as a CTO in Brainjolt.
I built my first website back in 1999, and transitioned to WordPress platform development around 2008. On my journey to growing a Top 20 WordPress agency worldwide, I picked up marketing and management skills which I’ve been polishing as a business advisor and digital consultant over the past decade. During that time I’ve Co-founded startups, SaaS businesses, marketplaces, media brands over the years. Furthermore, I’ve been a Business Advisor for $1M – $50M SMEs. Finally, I am an Angel Investor of companies such as CodeWell AI, Alcatraz AI and Karavani.bg .
While DevriX is proud to employ nearly a dozen WordPress Core contributors, I have 30+ patches myself, along with dozens of free plugins for the community. I’ve led thousands of hours in training courses for companies like VMware, SAP, Software AG, and organizations like CERN or Saudi Aramco.
On a day-to-day, I wear different hats – work closely with my tech team on innovations and deployments, discuss marketing strategy and partnerships with the marketing team, plan long-term strategy with our retainer accounts, build educational content for our team and the public (through webinars, publications on Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, and training courses). A lot of my educational content is through my personal blog MarioPeshev.com and Growth Shuttle’s social media.
I pride myself in being a “learnaholic”, pushing 120% in every endeavor I undertake. This is one of the key reasons we’ve coined “WordPress retainers” back in 2015 – being able to facilitate and push forward a number of businesses in different verticals, supporting technical, digital, and business strategy initiatives as a true partner.
