Recently InMobi's own Naveen Tewari was named by his peers and Mobile Entertainment as one of the top 50 most influential executives in the industry. The recognition is gratifying for all of us at InMobi and worth shouting about after a pivotal year for us all in 2010. Naveen and InMobi join an amazing list of leaders from companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, QualComm, Zynga, EA, Nokia, and Google to name a few. Between flights and meetings, I caught up with Naveen to answer just a few questions.

What is most exciting for you about the recognition?

It's about InMobi. The company as a whole. We've all worked incredibly hard and are lucky enough to have thousands of clients supporting us globally. As we began 2010, we were not even launched in Europe, the US, or Japan. It's obviously gratifying for me as the CEO, but mostly its about the recognition of InMobi as a leading global player for the 200 people around the world who executed so well in 2010.

Tim mentions œa series of astute moves. Tell us about them?

I would mention three key elements. First, our people. We have the best and brightest talent executing every day in every region of the world. It makes a huge difference in our ability to penetrate new markets. Second, our technology. We have built truly scalable mobile technology that allows us to scale quickly. Finally, we have maintained laser focus on delivering for our clients as a performance-based mobile ad network. Focus on performance for our partners is everything and we've never lost sight of that fact.

And the last obvious question, what's next in 2011?

More of the same. A lot more. I spoke about focus and that's important for us in 2011 the same as it was in 2010. We will launch more markets even more aggressively than in 2010. And new features will roll out at an increasing pace with our core technology now in place. By the end of 2011, I truly believe that inMobi will assert itself as a Tier 1 player in mobile advertising along with Google and Apple. Thanks, Naveen. And thanks to all of you who worked with in 2010 and helped us along. We appreciate it.
