ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mobile Posse, the technology innovator that turns telecom companies into mobile media leaders, today announced Steven McCord has been appointed its Chief Technology Officer. McCord will oversee the company’s engineering, development, project management and quality assurance teams. In particular, McCord will help Mobile Posse double down on its recently announced Firstly Mobile offering, a next-gen content discovery platform that creates native device experiences to make the smartphone better.
“Steven brings extensive years of experience to this position, most notably in the wireless technology sector,” said Jon Jackson, Founder and CEO, Mobile Posse. “We are eager for his leadership and expertise in propelling key company initiatives forward especially Firstly Mobile, and welcome him to the team.”
McCord has more than 15 years of experience in the technology industry, spearheading product development, IT operations and professional services for small startups and rapid-growth enterprises.
