“I could not be happier about Steven joining iLoop Mobile,” commented Matt Harris, iLoop Mobile CEO. “We’ve grown the company rapidly over the past several years, solidifying our position as the industry leader in mobile marketing. We will undoubtedly benefit from Steven’s background and experience, and from his leadership qualities. I’m looking forward to working closely with Steven to accelerate our growth in this fast-moving market.”
As COO, Steven will bring an analytics discipline to iLoop Mobile and help determine not only how to leverage data to drive mobile marketing strategies but provide proof points for how well the channel is performing. “I am a firm believer that data is king and we must be the leader in integrating analytics throughout the entire campaign process,” says Steven. “iLoop Mobile is well positioned as the leader in the mobile marketing space and I am excited to bring a multi-channel acumen to the organization that I believe will help our customers immediately.”
