Our History

Michael Haggerty and Andrew Hoppin founded in Trellon 2004 to further explore their common passion around open source software and belief in the power of online communities. After collaborating on a presidential campaign, they realized that they could combine their skills and strategic know-how to address the complexities of information access, technology and culture in the digital age. Trellon's founders posed a simple question, "what would happen if there was a competent provider to give companies and organizations the freedom to choose open source solutions for powering their web sites?" The answer surpassed all expectations, as Trellon witnessed the proliferation of online communities and social media. Soon thousands of web sites powered by open source solutions appeared across the Internet. Trellon continues to explore that question, with every product and solution we deploy. In four and a half years Trellon has launched over 200 web sites that target a breadth of issues ranging from small regional concerns to large-scale international web portals.
