As Head of Sales in Victoria, David will play a key role in building InMobi’s profile nationally and strategically lead the Victorian market into mobile marketing,” says Francisco Cordero, General Manager and Regional Director of InMobi Australia and New Zealand. “I am excited to join the InMobi family and become part of the Mobile Advertising industry.  Mobile advertising in Australia has started to explode and InMobi's investment in moblie technology and platforms made this an easy decision for me. I'm looking forward to spearheading the growth of the Melbourne business and mirror the success we are already seeing in other regions,” says David. David joins the InMobi team from Yahoo!7, where he was the Victorian State Manager. In this role he lead a team of digital media sales professionals across all of Yahoo!7’s display media properties.
