In those rare instances when Sean isn’t illuminated by the glow of multiple LCD panels at his desk or at home, he finds time to surf, read, and…. Who are we kidding, he hasn’t been on a real vacation in over five years. He is always working. When asked what could be listed for his hobbies his reply was, “Seriously?”
Jon Simon is the Chief Technical Officer for BankAds. He has led product development for a number of large companies. He is a CS graduate from London Metropolitan University and a veteran of the Canadian Army. Jon’s expertise and skill has made him one of the most recruited professionals in the industry. Sean Sullivan had to resort to tearful
pleading begging to convince Jon to join the team at BankAds.
