FRANKLIN, Tenn. and CONWAY, Ark., Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Metova, Inc., a mobile app developer that creates world-class apps for companies including Yelp, Dropbox, eHarmony, Flixster and the AP, announced today the opening of new offices located in downtown Conway, Arkansas. The company is expanding from their base in Franklin, Tennessee to meet the demands of the rapidly growing mobile and tablet app space.
"Our business has nearly doubled in the last year, and so we knew we needed to expand our offices to accommodate the growing demand for mobile and tablet apps," said John Adams, CEO of Metova, Inc. "After researching many locales, an anchor in Conway, with its great pool of talent, higher education opportunities, welcoming business environment and excellent living conditions was clearly the right choice."
The grand opening celebration including a visit from Governor Asa Hutchinson and Conway Mayor, Tab Townsell will be held on January 29, 2015. Metova's new offices in Conway are projected to create over 60 jobs primarily in application programming and development, bolstering Conway's job market and creating cutting edge job opportunities for Arkansans.
"I'd like to echo what Mr. Adams said about why his growing company has decided to expand into Conway: The city is blessed with a great talent pool, excellent colleges and universities, a business climate conducive to growth and an exceptional quality of life," said Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. "Talent attracts talent. And growing businesses attract other businesses. Not only does Metova bring some 60 new jobs to the area, but its presence will no doubt attract more cutting-edge companies — and more jobs. This, in turn, will be good for Conway and for all of Arkansas as we seek to compete regionally and nationally for innovative companies like Metova."
"There's no higher compliment than when a company like Metova chooses to grow in your community," said Mayor Tab Townsell. "This is the wonderful marriage of a smart, growth oriented company and a smart, growth oriented community."
In addition, Metova is announcing the addition of Chad Hodge as VP Business Development at Metova. A tech veteran who has relocated from Seattle, WA to Arkansas to assist in Metova's growing business, Chad brings over 20 years of digital media, gaming, entertainment, technology, and mobile experience having worked with companies including Microsoft, T-Mobile, EMI Music and Slacker Radio.
