Over the last decade, Sellfors has guided (mt) Media Temple to become a worldwide brand known for its customer service, high-traffic web hosting capability, and creative work culture. Serving over 1 million websites to over 125,000 customers, the company employs approximately 200 full-time US based staff members. (mt) Media Temple is the company that provides premium service to thousands of small businesses—as well as notable enterprises such as  Starbucks, Adidas, Samsung, and Toyota. In 2010, Sellfors partnered with Triangle and GMB capital groups to aid (mt) Media Temple in becoming one of the largest cloud service providers in the world. Prior to this financing, Sellfors also founded (mt) Ventures, an investment and advisory subsidiary to assist startups which include Virb, Koding, Mobile Roadie, and Krop. Prior to co-founding (mt) Media Temple in 1998, Sellfors created Intergress Technologies, a web hosting service, and began his journey as an early tech entrepreneur. Shortly after founding Intergress, Sellfors was acquired by one of his customers, (mt) Media Temple. The two businesses were integrated and Sellfors was appointed CEO. Prior to becoming a business owner, in 1994 Sellfors joined the legendary Stan Winston to build the company’s first major IT systems. Over the course of 5 years, Sellfors was appointed CTO and made responsible for ushering the special effects studio into the digital era by transforming the company’s creative, engineering, and business workflow. Sellfors has been credited on a variety movies and worked on projects including “Jurassic Park: The Lost World” and Michael Jackson’s long-form music video “Ghosts.”
