Endava marks one year since IPO
John Cotterell, CEO, reflects on one year of life in the fast lane leading a public company.
It has been nearly 20-years since CEO John Cotterell founded Endava, based on a simple philosophy of focusing on helping people succeed - the people who work for us, the people who engage with us, and the people who use the systems and applications we design, build, and operate. As a result, Endava started on a journey to reimagine the relationship between people and technology and stemming from a of a lot of hard work and dedication, that journey led to a milestone achievement for any company – listing on the New York Stock Exchange (“DAVA”).
“The IPO was a natural next step in the evolution of Endava and a year on I would like to take another opportunity to thank my colleagues, our clients and our partners for their contribution to our ongoing story and success,” said John. “Since our IPO we have continued to build on our core purpose of creating an environment and culture that breeds success by caring for our customers as individuals and enabling our people to be the best that they can be, and I am immensely proud of our achievements.
