We began our search a few years ago to find the perfect person or mascot to illustrate to our customers just how devoted we are to helping them with all of their WordPress, domain name and KloudEmail questions. We sat down for a brainstorming session with our creative friend David Bamberg, and the first thing we came up with was that our perfect person should be a coach. A coach could help guide and train customers to be experts.
Next, we had to decide how our perfect coach would look. Dave came up with at least ten illustrations, but there was just something missing. We couldn’t quite put our finger on it until we realized that the issue was that we didn’t know any of the faces he was drawing. SO, we decided he should draw the face of someone we knew, in fact, a soldier, an American soldier named Richard Alexandra Ware, who was lovingly known as “Dickie” to family and friends. Dickie is the brother of KartHost’s very own Gail Randolph.
Dickie gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country on August 24, 1968, in Tay Ninh Province, South Vietnam. On December 5, 2012, Dickie’s hometown honored his family with a portion of MS State Highway 15 by renaming it the “Richard Alexandra ‘Dickie’ Ware Memorial Highway”.

Once we had the face, we needed to give a name to our new coach. We wanted to pass along the spirit of serving like that of the one who served in an ultimate way. We came up with the name “Coach Wyatt Matters”™. (Pronounced Coach Why @ Matters. See what we did there?)
No, Coach Wyatt Matters is not the actual person helping you. However, the spirit of Coach Wyatt Matters is with all our Team Members at KartHost™–the spirit of helping you find answers, the spirit of serving by sharing knowledge of new techniques or ideas, and the spirit of giving our best to help you and your business succeed. Ultimately, doing the right thing to serve you best is what matters at KartHost™.
Coach Wyatt Matters helps us illustrate to everyone
We are very proud to introduce you to Richard Alexandra “Dickie” Ware and Coach Wyatt Matters
