The Mobile Data Association (MDA) has announced changes to its UK board of directors. The move includes the announcement that Dr Mike Short will stand down as Chairman after a highly successful 10 years at the head of the association. Vice Chairman, Steve Reynolds will take over the Chairmanship while Dr Short will assume the honorary role of MDA President. Nick Hunn has been appointed MDA Vice Chairman.
The new board draws experience from all areas of the mobile industry and will kick start the next stage for the MDA. The revised focus will see key initiatives put into play that reflect the needs of both MDA members and the mobile industry as a whole.
Steve Reynolds, chairman of the Mobile Data Association, commented: “The Mobile Data Association has constantly evolved and reinvented itself throughout its 14 year history. Change is something we’re used to – we represent one of the fastest moving and most dynamic industry sectors in the industrial age.”
He added: “The MDA plays a vital role in the growth of the mobile industry; I think it is important for us to acknowledge the part Mike Short has played in this success. His commitment not just to the association, but to the growth of mobile data and applications as a whole has been significant.”
