Mobile marketing solutions provider Sponge has appointed Jon Beverley as Business Development Director.
An entrepreneur and senior executive, Jon brings 14 years experience in digital media to Sponge; ten of which have been spent in the mobile sector. He recently returned from New Zealand, where he helped build two successful businesses in mobile marketing and mobile banking.
Prior to this Jon was co-founder and CEO of Scan Mobile. Here he developed and secured business-changing mobile solutions for clients such as Home Retail Group (Argos), Orange, Vodafone and several retail banks including HSBC.
Earlier still, Jon built, ran and sold his own new media consultancy, which was contracted by Financial Times Media & Telecoms.
