McLaughlin to Join Mobile Banking Vendor - Monitise

It was announced today that Jeff McLaughlin will join Monitise as EVP of mobile strategy.

The release reads, "McLaughlin has over 13 years of experience in the wireless industry, spanning various roles with carriers, vendors, systems integrators and content providers. Prior to joining Monitise Americas, McLaughlin held management positions at mFoundry, McCaw Cellular/AT&T Wireless, BCGI, GetConnected and Refresh Mobile. He is also the author of Consumer's Guide to Cell Phones & Wireless Service and a two-time Olympic medalist and World Champion in the sport of rowing."

Initially, I thought that Monitise had picked a senior manager from mFoundry, but upon further review I discovered that Mr. McLaughlin worked for mFoundry from April 2005 through October 2006. Most recently he was CEO/Founder of Mobile Intuition. Click here to read his full LinkedIn profile >>

Brandon - thanks for picking up the release about my new role with Monitise Americas. I am excited to help drive mobile banking forward in the US and Canada and believe that the unique way Monitise brings mobile banking to the masses virtually risk free for the financial institution is a key differentiator.

To your point, I was part of the senior management team at mFoundry and have a great respect for the platform they have built.

Thanks - Jeff McLaughlin
