Mobileum appoints four new board members

Mobileum, a global provider of analytics solutions for roaming and network services, security, risk management, testing and service assurance, and subscriber intelligence, has announced the appointment of four new members to its board of directors. 

The new appointees include Gavin Patterson, president and chief revenue officer at Salesforce, and Timur Akazhanov, Nishant Nayyar and Alexander Thorn, managing directors and principal, respectively, at H.I.G. Capital, a leading global alternative investment firm with $48 billion of equity capital under management.

They join Arun Sarin, former CEO of Vodafone; Ori Sasson, co-founder of Mobileum and managing partner of Primera Capital; Bobby Srinivasan, co-founder and CEO of Mobileum; and Iveshu Bhatia and Timothy Mack, managing directors at Audax Private Equity, who have each been reappointed to the board.

"We are delighted to welcome Gavin, Timur, Nishant, and Alex at this exciting time of growth for Mobileum. They bring proven track records and are influential leaders in the telecom and software spaces. Their expertise and leadership will further strengthen our ability to achieve our long-term growth strategy and create additional value for Mobileum's stakeholders," said Bobby Srinivasan, CEO of Mobileum.

Patterson brings a wealth of telecommunications, technology, and software experience.   Patterson previously served as CEO at BT, played a key role at Virgin Media, and was European head of marketing at Procter & Gamble. 

As an expert in worldwide sales, modern sales distribution, and SaaS, he will help steer Mobileum's go-to-market and business development plans as the company continues to expand its global footprint while tackling new 5G and private wireless network opportunities. Over the years, he has served on the boards of many public and private equity-owned companies, including Fractal Analytics, Delta Fiber, British Airways, Tappit, The British Museum, and several tech start-ups.

Akazhanov, Nayyar and Thorn each bring more than a decade of private equity investing experience with a focus in tech-enabled services and software. These appointments follow the March 2022 strategic investment by an affiliate of H.I.G. Technology Partners in Mobileum to help the company accelerate technology investments and growth enabled by the roll-out of 5G technologies and private networks across the world.
