Mobile Theory, the mobile ad network built for brands, is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to its senior management team – Alvaro Bravo as Senior Vice President of Business and Corporate Development, and Erica Chriss as Senior Vice President of Publisher Development. The addition of these two proven experts is expected to propel the company's continued growth.
“We are thrilled to welcome two of the mobile industry’s most sought-after executives to our team,” said Scott Swanson, Mobile Theory’s CEO. “Alvaro and Erica quickly built a tremendous business as executives at Greystripe. Their ability to articulate and execute complex solutions will no doubt have an effect on client satisfaction, bottom line results, and our ability to innovate.”
ALVARO BRAVO, SVP of Business & Corporate Development
At Mobile Theory, Bravo will focus on developing relationships with larger media companies and online network partners, helping them enter the mobile advertising sector at scale. He will introduce cross-platform programs that help to simplify campaigns, while still preserving sharp customization. Having consulted media and mobile companies in Europe, Latin America, U.S., and Africa for 10+ years, Bravo will also seek to quantify and harness the potential of mobile advertising overseas in an effort to establish the company’s burgeoning international business.
Previously, Bravo served at Greystripe as its first Vice President, helping grow the company from two employees to nearly fifty. He managed a network of ten partners reselling Greystripe inventory in the US, Europe, Australia, and Canada. Bravo also pioneered the first mobile advertising strategy for indirect sales organizations, which eventually led to a company acquisition by ValueClick. He holds a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, and currently resides in San Francisco.

Responsible for leading efforts with content owners and creating a vibrant and sustainable publisher eco-system, Chriss also joins Mobile Theory from Greystripe. There, she was Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, and managed all strategic partnerships, licensing, syndication and advertising programs. Experienced working with brands of all sizes, Erica forged first-of-their-kind mobile licensing deals with NBCUniversal, Time Inc, KingWorld Television, Rachel Ray, and many others.
