VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobify, the world leader in Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) for ecommerce, is accelerating its operations across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa with the appointment of David Ogidi as Director of EMEA Sales.
Ogidi brings more than two decades of experience establishing and expanding leading digital experience, SaaS, and enterprise software companies through highly successful direct and channel sales programs in the region. He joins Mobify as the company’s digital experience platform continues to drive revenue for retailers and brands. The Mobify Platform harnesses the power of innovative technologies such as PWAs for faster, more app-like experiences in the mobile browser, as well as Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) for fast initial page loads that prevent customer drop-off.
As Director of EMEA Sales, Ogidi reports to Darren Horne, Vice President of Sales at Mobify, and is based in London.
“David has deep market and regional experience and a proven track record with strategic retail accounts,” said Mobify CEO Igor Faletski. “Mobify customers are enjoying tremendous success -- from a UK department store with a 20% boost in mobile conversions and a 20-year old brand enjoying a 30% revenue lift, to an international multi-channel retailer seeing a 33% increase in revenue. We’re delighted to have David onboard to further expand our reach, strengthen our channel strategy, and accelerate customer adoption for Mobify.”
Prior to joining Mobify, Ogidi was Vice President, International Business Development at Paris- and New York-based ContentSquare, the digital experience insights platform used by ecommerce brands to optimize performance and conversions. There he expanded operations across EMEA and established key customer and partner relationships. He was European Sales Director for over 4 years as European Sales and two years as country manager for the UK at RichRelevance, establishing European operations and multi-million revenue growth for the global leader in omni-channel personalization. Ogidi previously held European sales, marketing, and business development positions with business software companies including SQRIBE Technologies, Metastorm, Interwoven, and MapInfo.
