We are thrilled to announce the recent acquisition of illuminea by LeverageIT, a Toronto-based digital agency.

As many of you are aware, Miriam Schwab founded and built illuminea in 2005 to become one of the leading WordPress agencies in Israel. A self-taught coder who fell in love with WordPress, Miriam built herself up to become a top thought leader and influencer within the Israeli and global WordPress and Open Source communities. Twelve years after starting the company, Miriam is happy and excited about the acquisition, and is confident illuminea is in good hands with LeverageIT. Miriam Schwab will continue to play a role in the company in order to maintain the high quality of projects that illuminea has come to be known for in their 12 years of business.

LeverageIT has established itself as an end-to-end digital agency offering a wide range of services including branding, design, digital marketing, as well as website, app and custom development.  In addition to working with large clients in North America, LeverageIT  also partners with startups helping them with design, development, and marketing. This purchase allows the current clientele of illuminea to benefit from the increased services now available to them. The new office in Jerusalem adds to LeverageIT’s current offices in Detroit and the head office in Toronto.

Our team on the ground in Israel is headed up by Aviva Krygier, a WordPress lover who brings 10 years of experience and a deep commitment to providing the same level of service that illuminea’s clientele has come to expect. You can reach Aviva at
