Business Insider’s Mobile Power List 2012
With the mobile ad space feeling a lot like the web ad space in 1997, it’s no surprise that mobile advertising spend is growing quickly. Business Insider decided to seek out the 18 most important people in mobile advertising—but it was no easy task. There were the suspect leaders of tech company giants (Apple, Google, Zynga) to consider but there were also some powerful players many have never heard of.
That’s why we’re excitedd to announce that our CEO, Alex Moukas, took the number 9 spot on the list! Not only has Alex led Velti as the leaders in the mobile marketing and advertising industries, but he’s also a brainiac–serving as the “chief scientist” at Frictionless Commerce, with a BS in Business Administration and Computer Systems from the American College of Greece, an MS in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh, and an MS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
