Former Lead of Search BD for Yahoo and CEO of Gigwalk tapped to drive business development efforts and channel ambition to push the limits of new user experiences on mobile.

San Francisco, June 25, 2015 -Following on the heels of a major company milestone where InMobi has reached 1BN users worldwide, the Company announced today that it has tapped Bob Bahramipour, former CEO of Gigwalk to lead the Company’s Global Business Development efforts. He’ll report directly to Abhay Singhal, CRO (Chief Revenue Officer) and Co-founder, InMobi.

“Bob shares our passion for user experience and brings a unique combination of digital media, ad technology, and mobile experience to the Company. We are thrilled to have him join us at a time when we’re witnessing unprecedented growth in North America,” said Abhay Singhal, CRO and co-founder, InMobi. “We love people who are scrappy, who've taken risks, who can span both the big and small picture and who don't hesitate to get their hands dirty,” said Amit Gupta, Co-founder and President, North America and Device Solutions for InMobi. “Bob is all of these things and he’s a perfect addition to our strong North America team and leaders at the company.”

"The founders and I were like minded from the minute we met where we turned a short meeting into a marathon session that lasted three hours. Before we knew it, three whiteboards were filled with ideas on how to continue to enhance the mobile discovery experience for users,” noted Bob Bahramipour. “It’s very rare to be part of a company which is already a giant and yet continues to push the envelope into a new user-first territory. This is an exciting time for InMobi and I’m looking forward to working with this talented team.”

Bahramipour has 25 years of business experience having spent 17 of them working in Internet related fields. He co-founded an ecommerce start-up that was later sold to Amazon. After that, he worked at Yahoo and led Yahoo’s Search business development team. He has held leadership positions at YuMe, TRUSTe and most recently, served as CEO of Gigwalk. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown University.

“We have a maniacal focus on delivering the best overall experience possible and greatly value our publisher partners who are true custodians of the user,” said Naveen Tewari, CEO and Co-founder. He added that quality business development at InMobi means crafting a win-win for both the publisher and the user. “We’re extremely glad to welcome Bob to our team.”

InMobi is a mobile-first platform allowing brands, developers and publishers to engage consumers through mobile advertising. The Company reached 1BN monthly users worldwide and has the status of being the largest ad network in China. InMobi witnessed 7x growth in the North America last year.
