Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
Gumiyo, a leading provider of mobile development and publishing solutions, announced today an expansion of its sales and client services teams. The dramatic rise in consumer demand for mobile content and services has driven Gumiyo's customers in the publishing, marketing, and software solutions industries to increase their emphasis on mobile content and advertising strategies.
Gumiyo adds Tim Repsher, former Managing Director of Mobile at MediaGeneral, to lead and grow the company's sales efforts to traditional and digital publishers. Mr. Repsher also led the sales and marketing efforts for NetInformer, a provider of mobile marketing tools for publishers and independent software vendors. His background in sales and implementation of mobile products for TV stations, newspapers, and Web properties will prove invaluable to Gumiyo's ongoing efforts to provide best-of-breed mobile publishing solutions.
"We are past the point where we need to convince publishers and businesses that they need to reach and engage consumers on mobile devices. The mobile space has become an inherent and critical strategic focus for them, and we are expanding our team of professionals to meet that demand," states Shuki Lehavi, CEO of Gumiyo Mobile.
Gumiyo has also assigned Andrea Michaud to lead Client Services, a department dedicated to launching mobile programs, applications, and sites for Gumiyo's existing customers. With over a decade of experience in digital project and production roles, Andrea has successfully managed projects from concept through completion in the digital marketing, advertising, and entertainment industries.
Gumiyo has also promoted Jim Justinich to lead the company's Account Management department. Mr. Justinich's previously directed the company's mobile products and solutions for the retail automotive industry—a core focus for Gumiyo. His new role will add all the company's business-to-business and ISV customers. His responsibilities will include maximizing their usage of the Gumiyo platform to generate revenue and create engaging, integrated mobile solutions for their end-customers.
"We are growing and we power today more than 27,000 mobile sites and applications," says Mr. Lehavi. "We seek the best and brightest to continue that growth and ensure our business customers get the most out of their mobile efforts."
