TORONTO, April 28 /CNW/ - Mobilicity is proud to announce that its Chief Operating Officer Stewart Lyons has been named one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40™ award recipients for 2010.

"Stewart has achieved more in the last 15 years than what others take a lifetime to accomplish," said Dave Dobbin, president and CEO of Mobilicity, and a former Top 40 Under 40 award recipient himself. "Much of Mobilicity's success can be attributed to Stewart's tenacity and leadership. He is most deserving of being named one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40."

As COO, Lyons, 38, oversees all major operational elements of Mobilicity, from billing and operational support systems to Information Technology (IT), handset acquisition and logistics, as well as the call centre and customer care. He also handles the regulatory aspects of the company and, having led the initial formation of the company, has played a significant role in its equity and debt fundraising efforts.

Prior to co-founding the rising wireless company, Lyons also co-founded and was Executive Vice President of XM Satellite Radio Canada. There, he was responsible for the launch of the business and regulatory licensing process, customer operations and contractual relationships.

A graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School, Lyons' business background includes working at Scotia Capital as an Interest Rate Derivatives Trader and as Director of Operations for the Toronto 2008 Olympic Bid.

Outside the office, Lyons volunteers with several charities, including sitting on the Board of Directors of ProAction Cops & Kids.
