Serial technical founder and startup mentor. Co-founder and COO at Placester. Founding CTO and former technical advisor at Mashable. Founder of W3 EDGE and W3 MARKUP. Creator of W3 Total Cache for WordPress.
Frederick is that rare breed of person who is simultaneously a strategic visionary & creative mind that can manage yet the finest details of any given client project. His strong client relationship skills are exceeded only by the ahead-of-the-curve websites that he continues to deliver (& maintain) on a regular basis. Whether I recommend his work to a client or choose to "splurge" on a project for myself, I've enjoyed seeing his visions manifest in each instance; every website should be so lucky as to have the creative style blended with the technical merit that W3 delivers without fail.
Our need was to outsource parts of the production process of a big website development project. After having researched the competitive market of ”psd to html”-companies, we outsourced markup and CMS template creation to W3. The production quality of the markup was excellent. Even though the creation of templates took longer then expected due to the complexity of such we’ve always been given the needed support and help to finalize what so far has been our smoothest web development project ever.
Frederick is an inventive professional managing a talented team. His ingenious development solutions to web development and strong work ethic make him a solutions provider we will use again and again.
Frederick has an incredibly strong work ethic and is a great team leader. He is passionate for getting the job done and it shows. His unique skillset -- a deep-rooted knowledge of SEO/SEM plus web development -- puts Frederick in a class of highly-knowledgeable web designers.
I have known Frederick for around four years now. He helped design our website (www.edigitaldeals.com), and more importantly was responsible for helping to create a HUGE Internet presence. I still work with him for website upgrades, and ask him any Internet-related question that I cannot answer. Anytime anyone needs a website designed with an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) campaign to move up the ranks on Google, I always recommend Frederick and W3.
Frederick has a great work ethic, a sense of business wisdom when it comes to the evolution of the tech field, and the ability to command a technical team to get the job done.
Everything about Frederick is high performance. As an active listener, he quickly understood our long-term website and lead generation goals. He thoughtfully navigated our chasm of open source code and plug-ins to provide the perfect solution for website optimization and Internet marketing. The W3 Cache Plug-in is his brain child and works flawlessly for us.
Frederick is also a WordPress and SEO savant. Ethical, hardworking and brilliant.
Frederick's development of W3 total cache represents a groundbreaking and visionary effort to offer enterprise grade website performance to Wordpress users globally.
I integrate Frederick's powerful software on all my high end website installations to ensure lightning fast site loading times, improved visitor experience and improved SEO.
Frederick's dedication to this project over the long term positions him as one of the most significant Wordpress developers worldwide.
I'm pleased to see W3 Edge is now offering server optimisation to further enhance performance of VPS and dedicated servers.
I worked with Frederick (and W3 EDGE) on the HubSpot's WordPress plugin, and he did great work. His code is high quality, his knowledge of WordPress is outstanding, he is very responsive, he turns work around quickly, he's a great partner to work with.
When Fred leaves the room, the average IQ plummets. It's on the verge of being intimidating, but also inspiring to see him in action.
Frederick Townes and W3 Total Cache were outstanding partners supporting AT&T's efforts to host the Democratic National Convention website www.demconvention.com. The "WPO" (web performance optimization) was absolutely critical to the functionality of the website. Frederick Townes is an expert in his field and an insightful business partner. It was a great pleasure to work with Frederick, as he was always willing to go the extra mile for the team.
