CONNECT2MEDIA RECRUITS SALES&MARKETING TEAM FOR NORTH AMERICA

Manchester , UK, 19 October 2010, independent mobile entertainment publisher, Connect2Media ( www.connect2media.com), has recruited a team to work on its North American initiatives and accounts.

The appointments follow last month’s announcement of a major new round of investments for the Manchester, UK, based company and its earlier acquisition of play-to-win gaming platform Prize Play. Connect2Media now has direct contracts with Verizon and AT&T in the USA as well as other networks and the new team will be dedicated to supporting these accounts.

Seattle based Greg Graham joins the company from Real Networks and takes the role of VP of Sales&Marketing for North America. Greg’s background covers nearly two decades of experience in the mobile arena working for companies like Sony Ericson and AT&T. Greg will be in charge of servicing existing accounts and also developing new business in the region.

Jennifer Lyons comes into the mobile sector from retail and eCRM as Marketing Manager for North America. Jennifer’s background in working with mass market brands, both in the UK and overseas stands her in good stead for working in the US marketplace. Jennifer will be responsible for marketing activities across Connect2Media’s entire US catalogue as well as their Prize Play offering.
