Publisha was created by Ben May and Martin Lane. 

Despite our youthful good looks, we've played in the publishing space for over two decades and know a thing or two about launching, operating and monetising content businesses.

Ben May Publisha

Ben is the founder and Managing Director of one of Australia's most technically advanced WordPress development agencies - The Code Company.

Over the last decade, Ben has worked with over 50 digital publishers; from large enterprise publishers, to emerging startups. Working with such a diverse range of media organisations gives him a rare and insightful perspective of the publishing landscape.

When he's not leading tech development projects and directing digital strategy, Ben enjoys sharing his knowledge at conferences such as Mumbrella Publish and WordCamp.

Ben's passion for helping smaller publishers navigate the complex technical ecosystem is what inspired him to co-found Publisha.
