The homebuilder industry has lost a star with the recent passing of Jouko Vakiparta, President of Mitek’s Kova Solutions. As CEO of Kova, Jouko had not only the vision but the talent to introduce an innovative web-based, collaborative software solution to the homebuilder community.
In 2017 the informXL team was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work directly with Jouko towards the release of informXL for SAPPHIRE Build. His insight, patience and direction throughout the development process was exceptional, but not unexpected given Jouko’s reputation and commitment to customer care.
We will remember Jouko as a phenomenal force, a true visionary and an industry leader who leaves behind an extraordinary legacy. His contribution to improving the efficiency of homebuilder operations continues to deliver lasting benefits to leading builders across the US.
Our deepest condolences go to his family and those closest to him, as we recognize the remarkable impact he had to the industry and to our team directly.
