“A tremendous transfer of value is underway in media, as the world continues to shift to mobile. Our new board members track records in financing, building and guiding digital media companies from growth to exit is sterling,” says Miles Spencer, Mojivas founder and chairman. “Mike Perlis has been working with us for some time, so his election to the board was a logical step and anticipated. His deep experience in this space is invaluable.”
