Earlier this year during Step Fourths pre launch phase the company acquired the Assets to IMVS Limited with staff, clients and software moving over to Step Fourth.
Pre completion, Step Fourth committed to John Motley the central figure and driving force of IMVS throughout its history that we would look after the staff and clients going forward. John decided that this was the right moment for him to hand over the reins and begin a very well deserved retirement.
Now that Step Fourth has launched, all of our staff feel it was very important for us to do a big shout out and thank John for all his efforts in building IMVS over the years. John is hugely popular and highly respected, by not just the IMVS and Step Fourth staff but also in the wider software community. John is a true gentlemen of the industry and while he started his career in stockbroking, we consider John a real software person, hugely knowledgeable, with a deep understanding of the challenges of how to build great software and very much a ‘father figure' for IMVS.
John does not believe in shortcuts but in building a business through solid foundations, taking an honest approach combined with excellent service, technology and value for money. These are great fundamental principles that I believe all technology providers should be striving for. We are here to serve our clients and should strive to go above and beyond regardless of whatever the contractual agreement says.
We know that John is enjoying his retirement and on behalf of all of us at Step Fourth we thank him for everything he has done and wish him a fabulous Christmas and New Year.
