“It’s an exciting time to join the GoCanvas team,” said Joe Gatto. “Not long ago, building mobile business applications required extensive custom development along with significant human and capital investment. GoCanvas has created an environment that enables the average small or medium business user the ability to download mobile apps from the ever growing GoCanvas Application Store or easily create their own custom applications and do so in a fraction of the time with none of the complexity of the past. The Company is poised to reshape the industry when it comes to delivering extremely useful, integrated mobile business apps on a broad scale. I’m thrilled to come aboard at this time of exciting growth."

Joe has seen the transformation of disconnected solutions from the first deployments of wireless email to some of today's leading mobile industry solutions. We are very proud to have Joe as a part of our core team" said James Quigley, CEO and Co-Founder of GoCanvas.
