EMeta Closes Its UK Offices, For Now

EMeta, one of the biggest content commerce software companies, has closed its offices in UK (based in London), for now. The company is “restructuring” it UK and European operations and making some changes, according to CTO Jonathan Lewin, but “we are fully supporting the UK market and present customers in full capacity”. EMeta hopes to re-open the offices soon and this is “transitory”, according to Lewin. The managing director of London office, Patrick Cooke, has also left the company. [eMeta was founded in London, and then moved its headquarters to New York City in 1999. The company has been without a CEO for more than a year now, though it would not discuss the specifics of it.]

The closure comes as a bit of a surprise, as the company recently moved into a bigger office in London, and in general has been doing very well in U.S. In UK, its biggest and most high profile client has been FT.com, which launched a subscription service a year ago and has been cited as a success. In the U.S. market, it has some blue-chip clients such as NYTimes.com, WSJ.com, iVillage.com, TheStreet.com, among others.
