Said Satija. “InMobi has grown at a tremendous pace in the last two years as the market for mobile advertising takes off. As an independent network, it is ideally placed to offer the market greater choice. The executive management team at InMobi has done an exceptional job in establishing a leadership position here and I am very excited to take the reins and help steer the company to new heights. One of the first tasks I have on hand is to further strengthen the regional team based in Singapore with outstanding industry talent.”
