Classy Llama focuses on understanding the challenges their ecommerce clients face and work with them to design and implement solutions to those challenges. They work with companies who prefer a consulting and implementation partner that acts as an integral part of their team. The Classy Llama team works to create value for their clients that positively impacts their business, pivoting from a tight relationship with each of them.
The team joined the Magento community in early 2008, and have loved every minute of it. They have referred hundreds of clients to the platform and only build on Magento. Classy Llama provides wise counsel and excellence in implementation that sustainably drives their business to new levels of performance and their team members have depth of character that drives genuine interest in each of their client’s success.
In addition to their involvement in the community, they have attended PreImagine every year since it started in 2012. And, we are delighted to have them as first time sponsors this year!
Kurt Theobald, CEO of Classy Llama, explains what you can expect while attending PreImagine in this witty interview:
Why did Classy Llama decide to sponsor PreImagine this year?
We believe in building genuine relationships with our clients and partners, which helps us to create an immense amount of value for them. The very nature of Pre-Imagine is centered are building those kinds of relationships with others in the Magento ecosystem. So for us, we see Pre-Imagine as an obvious event for Classy Llama to get behind.
How would you describe your past PreImagine experiences?
Because we have been a part of the community for a while now, Pre-Imagine feels a lot like a family reunion. We have a chance to all come together with our partners and friends as we share a memorable experience together and recount the tales of Magento past.
What is your favorite memory from past PreImagines?
Kalen Jordan’s mage socks. Oh, and that time that Ben Marks fell into the pool. Oh, and when, in a flash of passion, everyone decided to have the Magento logo tattooed on their faces permanently. That was awesome… until we had to have them all surgically removed later… Ah, the memories are rich and many (and mostly made up).
What are you looking forward to most this year?
Releasing our 10th anniversary Super Llama!
What would you list as the biggest benefit of attending PreImagine?
Reconnecting with some of the best people in the Magento ecosystem!
Do you have any advice for first time attendees?
Don’t wait in line for taxis at the airport. Ride for free in one of the Llama Limos that will take you from the airport to The Wynn on Sunday. No need to RSVP, just look for us out at Terminal 1.
Oh, and don’t forget to ask Philip Jackson about his new Winkle toupee swag! Hint: It goes on your head and makes you look as awesome as he does every day. Gonna get me some Phil hair!
