A Warm UA Welcome To Our New CRO Christopher Dean!
As things here on the ship continue to elevate, we are excited to welcome Christopher Dean (a.k.a CD) to the team as our Chief Revenue Officer. Before joining Urban Airship he was the Head of Business Development and Chief Strategy Officer at Skype. CD comes to us with 20 years of Internet and IP communications experience in the B2C and B2B markets and has consulted with the likes of Apple, Adobe Systems, IBM, Oracle, and Placeware (acquired by Microsoft). So we are confident that he is going to lead our sales and BD efforts to the next level.
When he's not ruling the boardroom he spends time with his lovely wife and three kids at their home in San Francisco, and spends time making air-dried Italian sausages, cycling, skiing and traveling to Portland (amongst other places). Read more about Christopher here. Welcome Chris!
