We are on the cusp of significant exponential growth, and that is why we established the advisory board, says Muzicall CEO, Patrick Allainguillaume. Ringback tones are already hugely popular in the US and Asia, where in some territories penetration is as high as 50%. In Europe, the systemic issues that have prevented similar growth are close to being resolved, and we want to position our company to take maximum advantage of the demand that will be unlocked. As we manage the strategic growth of the company, the experience and advice that Lourens and Lee can provide will be invaluable.
