In this role, Latkar will lead all aspects of marketing for InMobi, aligning the marketing strategy and brand positioning to embrace a new hyper-growth phase in the rapidly evolving mobile advertising industry.

Its ability to offer enormous global reach, combined with a unique rich media platform – Sprout, for building and delivering HTML5 rich media ads to mobile devices gives it a significant advantage over the competition. I look forward to leading InMobi’s marketing during such an exciting time in the industry.”

Latkar will be based at InMobi’s San Francisco office in the USA. InMobi has recently expanded its office footprint in Australia, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
