I am currently President and CEO at Paperlit, a company specialized in providing mobile apps for the publishing industry, with hundreds of customers worldwide.
Before that, during my time in BlackBerry, I headed the developer evangelism team in the EMEA region and managed the BlackBerry developer ecosystem globally. My team’s evangelism activities were instrumental for the impressive growth of the catalogue of mobile apps available for the BlackBerry 10 platform in the EMEA region, with over 70K new apps published for the platform in EMEA in just 7 months.
At the beginning of my career in BlackBerry, as Developer Evangelist, together with the Developer Relations team, we generated the largest ever mobile app offering for a brand new device platform the world has ever seen (100,000 apps before hitting US stores). 3x the nearest competitor.
Before joining BlackBerry, over the years, I have been responsible for product management, biz dev and sales, managing the relationship with large accounts and multi-million deals with telcos, media companies and system integrators. I also bootstrapped a few startups on a global scale.
I held the role of CEO/CTO in the field of VoIP, heading the product management and sales of innovative VoIP solutions for businesses.
I have a Master Degree in Electronic Engineering, specialised in Telecommunications. Joined Abbeynet in 2000, as CTO, overseeing the development of new VoIP services and applications and managing different groups of researchers and engineers. CEO from 2004.
