OpenMarket appoints new General Manager taking text to the next level
SEATTLE, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Jonathan Morgan takes the helm at global mobile messaging leader 

Jonathan Morgan has been appointed General Manager of leading mobile messaging 
company OpenMarket (https://www.openmarket.com/ ). OpenMarket, an Amdocs 
company, enables enterprises to reach nearly every mobile user in the world 
through its global network, sending over two billion business-to-consumer 
mobile messages per month.

Jonathan has a proven track record in transforming businesses within the mobile 
technology industry. This comes from nearly 20 years' experience in commercial, 
engineering and operational leadership roles at OpenMarket, as well as at other 
mobile companies such as Proxama and Hypertag. 

As OpenMarket's General Manager, the Cambridge Engineering alum will draw on 
his experience across North America, Asia-Pacific and Europe to drive the 
company's global strategy and help enterprises transform their operations in 
order to improve customer experiences through SMS. His appointment marks a new 
era for OpenMarket which is set to shift the way businesses interact with their 
customers by delivering text messages at the right time and place, what the 
company calls Empathetic Interactions. 

Jonathan Morgan, General Manager, OpenMarket, said: "In the 'Customer Age', 
it's not enough to say a business is 'consumer-centric', it must adopt a new 
mind set and approach which is entirely 'customer first'. 

"At OpenMarket, we believe the future of customer experience is around empathy. 
Those companies that capitalize on empathetic interactions, at those moments 
that matter, will drive the best loyalty among their consumers."

In his previous role as Vice President of Corporate Development, Jonathan was 
responsible for launching OpenMarket's Asia-Pacific business. He later worked 
as Vice President of Global Operations, where he was instrumental in 
streamlining OpenMarket's strategies, processes and structures across the 
entire business. 

Anthony Goonetilleke, Group President - Entertainment, Media & Technology, 
Amdocs, said: "Jonathan is a highly talented business leader with the right 
skills and experience to deliver OpenMarket's ambitious plans. His incredible 
track record and strong knowledge of the business will no doubt accelerate the 
great work that is already underway." 

Jonathan continued: "OpenMarket has earned the reputation as the global leader 
of mobile messaging. I am looking forward to this new role with the support of 
the whole OpenMarket team as we grow our partnerships with some of the world's 
leading brands and take text to the next level."
