Toronto, ON – February 1, 2017 - Q4 Inc., a global leader in cloud-based investor relations and capital market solutions, announced today that Stephen Devito has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer, leading finance, growth and expansion efforts.
Stephen brings two decades of financial, operational and strategic planning experience in both private and public companies. He spent the past eight years as CFO at Marketwired, a leader in news release distribution, and led the successful sale of the company to Nasdaq Inc. in 2016. Stephen was also instrumental in Marketwired’s acquisition of Sysomos, a SaaS based global leader in social marketing and analytics, which saw revenue growth of more than 1000% from acquisition in 2010 through 2014. Prior to Marketwired, Stephen was CFO of Second Cup where he helped lead the company through an IPO in 2004.

2016 was a watershed year for Q4, generating record client and recurring revenue growth while executing on the Company’s product suite expansion. With the acquisition of Euroinvestor IR Solutions in October 2016 and CapMark Clarity in January 2017, Q4 is better positioned than ever to expand market reach globally and continue with an upward revenue growth trend.
“Q4 is on the path to becoming a significant disrupter in the capital markets industry,” says Stephen Devito, CFO, Q4. “I'm thrilled to join Darrell and the Q4 team during this exciting phase of the company’s trajectory.”
