STOCKHOLM -- Mobeon has appointed Huw Hampson-Jones as its new CEO. Hampson-Jones takes over global responsibility for leading the company and increasing the 70% market growth achieved in the past year by the mobile messaging provider.

In his role as executive vice president of sales at Mobeon, Huw achieved sales growth of 95% between 2003-4 and has established an installed base of 34 million IP voicemail boxes globally. His promotion to CEO marks Mobeon’s aim for continuous rapid growth during 2005.

Prior to joining Mobeon, Hampson-Jones was executive vice president of iD2 Technologies AB, which was sold successfully to Sonera of Finland in July 2000. Before that he spent almost ten years with Siemens where, on leaving, he was senior VP of telecommunications worldwide for Siemens Business Services.

“The past year has exceeded all expectations for Mobeon, and we intend to build on the long-standing relationships established with mobile operators across the globe,” said Hampson-Jones.

“Our unique ability to track consumer behaviour and help operators develop services that their subscribers want, enables them to generate additional revenue and stay ahead of the competition. Innovative services such as personalised videomail and 3D avatars also help end users stay connected to their world in a quick and easy way. It is this market intelligence that puts Mobeon at the forefront of messaging innovation,” he added.

“Our success in global sales can be directly attributed to Huw’s flair for leadership and dedication to customer relationships. I have absolute confidence in his ability to lead Mobeon to even greater heights in the future,” said Ross Bott, chairman of Mobeon.
