Indiagames CEO, Vishal Gondal, among Top 50 Mobile Content Executives Worldwide

UK-based magazine ‘Mobile Entertainment’ has published its first ever list of top 50 executives in the mobile content space. The list features some of the most well known names such as Steve Jobs (Apple), Wang Jianzhou (China Mobile), Lincoln Wallen (EA Mobile), Graeme Ferguson and Jeremy Flynn (Vodafone), Mitch Lasky (Jamdat), Mitch Lazar (Yahoo!), Wang Lei Lei (TOM Online), Takeshi Natsuno (NTT DoCoMo) and Geoffrey Frost (Motorola) to name a few.

Also among the top 50 is Indiagames Ltd CEO, Vishal Gondal. Commenting on his inclusion in the list, Gondal said, “It’s a privilege to be part of this elite list and it inspires all of us to do better. We have continuously innovated, with many new and interesting concepts. We see a change in the way people use mobile phones and other hand held devices globally. And to be part of that change is exhilarating.”

He further said, “Mobile content business is definitely looking to be one of the top-most grosser in the next five years. Entertainment and telecom companies have realigned business models and strategy to focus on mobile content. A global survey to pick the top people in the business only reiterates the importance of this sector. I’d like to thank ‘Mobile Entertainment’ magazine for giving this sector due recognition.”

The magazine had conducted a worldwide poll on mobile content providers and drew a list of top 50 people based on various criteria such as – experience, number of years in business, range of content, innovations and company size, growth rate and current projects. ‘Mobile Entertainment’, through this poll, aimed to identify visionary thinkers and senior executives whose decisions shape the future of mobile content.

The survey includes the entire spectrum of content for mobiles – from service providers to content developers of music, video, games, game shows, value added services and handset makers.

Tim Green, Executive Editor, ‘Mobile Entertainment’, said, “Everyone’s looking at mobile content to either monetise or market their IP. That’s why, alongside the key players from mobile companies like Glu and Nokia, our respondents suggested executives like Jobs and others from EMI, Google, and Sony Ericsson.”
