We will miss Jon and wish him every success in his future endeavours.”

Siverston added: “I’ve greatly enjoyed the work I’ve done at GainingEdge, and the great people we have that makes the company such a powerful force in our business. I’ll greatly miss GainingEdge, but I am also looking forward to the new challenges I have set for myself.”
