Ben Metcalfe is the founder of Swordfish Corp, a product development company. He is also a co-founder of WP Engine, a managed hosting platform.

Metcalfe combines his skills and experience in software engineering, product development, social media consultancy, and business strategy to offer deep insights across the majority of the internet industry’s key knowledge verticals.

During the late 90’s, and while only in his mid-teens, Ben launched his first startup, a free e-mail service that attracted over 60,000 registered users. Then, he was offered the chance to work on the BBC news website.

Some of his professional highlights include advising MySpace’s executive team on the development and execution of their open platform strategy and consulting with carrier and communications services provider Neustar Inc.
