Appfire Acquires More Atlassian Expertise to Add Competitive Edge to Products

Sponsored by Businesswire

Appfire, a leading provider of Atlassian apps, announced today the
addition of long-time software experts Steven Kling and Michael Kuhl to
the Appfire family. Kling and Kuhl will use their extensive knowledge of
the Atlassian suite and experience in building custom software solutions
to continue the evolution of Appfire’s products.

The addition of the two industry experts signals Appfire’s dedication to
innovating alongside Atlassian by improving Appfire’s current products
and casting a vision for future growth.

“Steve and Michael have firsthand knowledge of how teams use Atlassian
tools, and their insight into where the market is going will help us
continue to build products that help thousands of teams work more
efficiently,” Appfire Vice President of Research and Development Jeff
Pierce said. “As an integral part of our product teams, their fresh
vision will ensure that we are first to market with many new products.”

Leveraging decades of combined software development experience, Kling
and Kuhl have created custom enterprise solutions for companies all over
the world and provided Atlassian consulting for start-ups and Fortune
500 organizations. Notably, the duo combined their knowledge of
Atlassian’s product suite with the capabilities of Appfire’s Bob Swift
brand apps to build and deploy a dynamic, integrated communications
solution for a global online marketplace.

Having built Atlassian apps in the past, Kling will initially be tasked
with creating the vision and technical architecture needed to bring more
of Appfire’s apps to the cloud – reinforcing the company’s commitment to
offering its cutting-edge technology to customers on Atlassian Cloud.

“So many people everywhere rely on Appfire’s tools, and I can’t imagine
anything more exciting and challenging than unlocking the potential for
more and more teams to use these products in Atlassian Cloud,” Kling

Kuhl, who was a finalist at Atlassian’s ShipIt Live event in 2015 and
has been a regular presenter at the annual Atlassian Summit, is excited
to work with his hero, Bob Swift.

“Appfire is an incredible company built on a team of fantastic people.
And now, I get to work with Bob as he continues his journey helping
people use their Atlassian suite and the Bob Swift line of apps to solve
challenging problems,” Kuhl said.

Kling and Kuhl will officially assume their new roles at Appfire on July
