Fueled by research, driven by results
Brian Howard, John Howard, and Jeremy Howa launched the first InMotion application a few days after Apple opened the App Store in August of 2008. As the app market exploded so did InMotion, applying its mobile expertise to enterprise and consumer software while proactively researching and implementing emerging technologies. The InMotion game, I Dig It, became the best-selling app in the world in 2009. Another InMotion app reached number 7 on the top-grossing charts. In total 6 of InMotion’s creations ranked #48 or higher on the Apple App Store top-selling or top-grossing lists.
The addition of general manager and partner Greg Meador, chief experience officer Matthew Jewell, chief revenue officer Bill Sullivan and director of business development Lindsey Harrison have all facilitated InMotion’s shift to a full-stack digital agency, with a novel and aggressively practical approach to digital research, design and development solutions.
Partner, Chief Executive
John Howard began his career as an engineer with IBM in Silicon Valley. He quickly found himself based in Dallas, Texas, problem-solving out of the IBM Scientific Center. While at the Scientific Center, John gained permission to start one of IBM’s first certified consultancy practices, IBM Management Technologies. John ran U.S. operations of MT through the 90s, whose projects covered everything from airline logistics to Wall Street. John left IBM to begin his own independent consultancy called Aeon Decision Technology. In 1995, alongside UC Berkeley researchers, the Aeon team helped win the coveted Franz Edelman Award for Achievement in Advanced Analytics, Operations Research, and Management Science. Later John and his team built an internet-enabled mapping technology, which has seen many leading technology companies license these patents over the years. John sold the mortgage software division of his company to TransUnion. While working for TransUnion, John was pivotal in developing an automated home valuation model, much like Zillow, before leaving in 2008 and starting InMotion Software. There are 37 patents held by John or one of his companies.
