Heading up New Products for Google Sub Sahara Africa. Where I am responsible for the following businesses; Youtube, Google Mobile, Google Display Network and Google Plus.
17 years working in Innovation from Mobile media, Digital Media, Social Media and Enterprise Technologies all over the globe – from Planning, to Strategy, to implementation from London to Mongolia. After a decade in London, I headed back home to Johannesburg, to start my own Mobile Media agency. I then had the privilege of joining Admob one of the worlds largest Mobile Advertising Networks as Country Manager for the region. Admob was then acquired by Google in November 2009
I have also served as the South African MMA Co Chair where our goals are to grow the Mobile Marketing and Media market space, focusing on measurements, Media Standards Guidelines and Education. I am also passionately involved in the Mobile Monday Johannesburg Council for the past 3 years, where we bring industry minds together and explore innovation. My passions are family, freedom, the frenetic buzz of developing mobile technology, fine humour and, occasionally, a round or two of golf.
