Steve Fortmann is the founder and CEO of Pure Web. His service in the United States Air Force as the Airman in Charge of Records and member of the MPF placed him at the center of early network architecture and computer systems. His military assignment made it essential for him to learn and master the intricacies of all things IT, which he did with the type of great enthusiasm and pride that you’d expect of a serviceman.
When Steve completed his military service, he brought his skills and expertise to the private sector. At first, he provided services to friends and family, and then ultimately to the public in general upon forming Pure Web.
Steve’s interest and experience in website development and coding began in the early 90s when the Internet as we know it was still in its infancy. From his early experience with Tandy Computers and roaming the Oregon Trail, to his more sophisticated endeavors in building custom websites, including e-Commerce sites and community portals, Steve has made computers and technology a lifelong interest.
Steve’s passion for providing high quality IT and web development services is surpassed only by his passion for people. Steve currently resides in the Royston area with his wife, two children, and his sisters-in-law.

Born in Ghana, Saviour moved to the United States in 2001 at the age of 9 with his family when his parents decided it would be the best to achieve a better life. Growing up in a different environment would've been a challenge to most but Saviour quickly fit right in. From watching, reading & hearing so much about America, he was very eager to meeting new people & experiencing new things. For his first Christmas abroad, he was introduced to skateboarding when his mother bought him a skateboard. He explains, "That skateboard was ultimately the best thing that happened to my life because through the years of being around the skate scene, I gained a real passion for music by hanging out & skating with friends who loved Rock, Metal & Techno to friends who loved listening to strictly Rap & Hip Hop only. I gained so much knowledge on all types of genres just from being around them." Some years passed by where Saviour grew & became very accustomed to the new life. However it wasn’t until 2008, when his older brother returned from college & handed him his old laptop. On that Laptop was a music creating software called Fruity Loops. As he explains, "I opened up the program & the rest was written in stone. I would stay up nights in a row just making music, I didn’t want to do anything else". The same passion for music quickly found its way to video production in 2012 when Saviour started editing videos and short clips he recorded. Saviour officially joined the Pure Web Family in October of 2014 where he has been enjoying every minute of it.
