Women in Wireless Boasts Five "Mobile Women to Watch in 2012," Surpasses 3,000 Members
Year-old non-profit experiences rapid growth, recognition for leading members
New York -- Dec 14, 2011 -- Women in Wireless (WIW) is proud to announce that five of its members, including co-founders Veronika Sonsev (CEO of inSparq) and Charlotte Fors (VP of Sales Americas at mBlox) were honored by Mobile Marketer as “Mobile Women to Watch in 2012,” a list that celebrates smart women who are making waves in mobile advertising, marketing, media and commerce. Other WIW members included in the list are Diana Epstein of Jumptap, Lisa Abramson from Rhythm New Media and Viki Zabala from Fiksu.
"It's not surprising that five executives on the Mobile Women to Watch 2012 belong to Women in Wireless," said Mobile Marketer editor in chief Mickey Alam Khan. "The common thread between the prestigious Mobile Marketer list and the leading women's mobile organization is a recognition that smart women deserve to be role models for others looking to mobile marketing as a career. Mobile Women to Watch is an honor given to few, but those that make the list are on a trajectory to set the bar higher for smartness in mobile."
"Women in Wireless is thrilled to continue to promote these amazing women through our leadership initiatives in 2012," said Charlotte Fors. "We want to congratulate all the honorees and wish them continued success in their career."
