FRANKLIN, Tenn. Aug. 14, 2013 — Custom mobile applications developer Metova has hired Kevin Lind as director of business development, and promoted Jack Bailey from developer to lead developer, company leadership announced today.
As Metova’s director of business development, Lind will collaborate with clients on a daily basis to provide custom software solutions that meet their vision. He will serve as Metova’s frontline communicator with current and prospective clients, who range from large corporate enterprises to startups.
Lind attended University of Arkansas and holds a degree in business administration. After college, he spent four years in the U.S. Army as a pastry chef. Choosing to not reenlist, he then joined a software development company where he served as senior account executive for 17 years.
“Kevin is a seasoned professional within the software industry, and he has a lot of experience engaging prospective clients and gauging their needs,” said Dave McAllister, president of Metova. “It will be Kevin’s job to ensure that no customers, no matter how big or small, get lost during their journey with Metova.”

He graduated from Auburn University with a bachelor’s degree in software engineering. While in college, Bailey interned as an engineer for Premier System Integrators.
“Jack is one of Metova’s strongest iOS developers, and he has made across-the-board contributions to our company,” said Dave Lane, vice president of technology. “In addition to his regular development work, he has gone above and beyond in helping with sales and operations efforts time and again.”
