Mr. Amsellem is also joining MeeMee's Board of Directors. Mr. Rubenstein will continue to serve as a Director of MeeMee and play a key role in guiding the Company's business and M&A strategy going forward.
Mr. Rubenstein commented:
"I leave the role of MeeMee's CEO with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I am taking what I believe is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with a major media company - one of the few media jobs in the world that could entice me to leave the CEO's position at MeeMee. On the other hand, I know the Company's strategy and forward progress remains intact under the leadership of Executive Chairman Martin Doane and new CEO Paul Amsellem. Further, I remain committed to working with MeeMee in a board capacity to deliver innovative strategy guidance and content and corporate acquisition opportunities."
Paul Amsellem comes to the role of MeeMee CEO with an extensive record of success, spanning more than twenty years in the mobile, digital media, technology, marketing and advertising spheres. Mr. Amsellem began his career at Wunderman (a WPP company) where he oversaw the data analytics group. He then founded, ran and sold two pioneering European mobile media companies: PhoneValley and Cellcast Interactif. Subsequently, Mr. Amsellem served as the CEO of Adenyo Europe and then as the COO of Nokia (France). These roles afforded Mr. Amsellem the privilege of working at the highest levels with many of the largest carriers, media companies, brands and advertising agencies in the world. Most recently, Mr. Amsellem has led Nemapp, an exclusive European mobile and digital media consulting firm specializing in investment, marketing and strategy. During his tenure there he has worked with many substantial public and private sector clients.
Mr. Amsellem commented on his new position with MeeMee:
"I am incredibly excited about this opportunity and look forward to helping MeeMee complete its pending acquisition of the Latin American mobile content company and then executing the Company's international expansion strategy. I believe MeeMee's business and capital markets strategy is perfectly suited to the current mobile environment, and that we can build an unique, publicly-traded mobile player with sufficient scale to compete and win on a global basis."
