Rating: Hires Mark Lanphear hot on heels of Microsoft coup
Hot on the heels of its announcement that the company had landed Microsoft as a licensee (and how many others will now follow suite?), NeoMedia Technologies, has gone on the head hunt. It has just snaffled Mark Lanphear as its new vp for sales in North America. “To be joining an industry stalwart like NeoMedia at such a positive time for QR codes is very exciting for me,” Mark Lanphear commented. “NeoMedia is a company focused on innovation and I look forward to helping drive NeoMedia’s continued success,” he added.
Lanphear will have responsibility for sales and business development of NeoMedia’s two core products: – NeoReader and NeoSphere.
“Mark has extensive knowledge of the North American mobile market and expertise with international brands.”
“We look forward to benefiting from his wealth of sales knowledge and insight to drive revenue significantly in the region,” observed Laura Marriott, CEO of NeoMedia.
Bizarrely, one GoMobile News reader wanted to know if you are related to the Marriott who founded the international hotel chain, Laura!
Anyway, Mark is no newcomer to the wireless telecom industry having worked in it for two decades.
Lanphear was previously vp of global sales and general manager of ZOMM in Boulder, Colorado. He was also the founder of 2nd Jetty Partners.
Prior to ZOMM he held various sales management roles at companies including: – Zvelo; Vocel; Openwave; Wavemarket; and SignalSoft Corporation.
