Upstream Hires SVP of Global Sales
Mobile marketing and solutions company Upstream has appointed Vu Nguyen to its sales team. Nguyen joins the company as senior vice president of global sales.
Prior to Upstream, Nguyen was executive vice president and head of global sales at Telmap, a white-labelled location-based solutions and services company for mobile operators. At Telmap, Nguyen managed sales operations in EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific, as well as all sales strategies for new business areas, including mobile advertising and premium services.

"There is a tremendous appetite at the moment for brands and operators to engage with customers over mobile channels," says Alex Vratskides, CEO of Upstream. "Vu's appointment will mean that we continue to command a crucial role in this fast-growing sector, ensuring customers and prospects are kept abreast of our latest solutions and unique technology. His detailed knowledge of the mobile industry will be a key asset in growing our North American presence and overseeing all sales efforts, while managing our global footprint."
