Fred Metzgen has been appointed as CEO of mobile applications developer Masabi.


Having previously worked as of France Telecom Network Services, International Business Development Director at BT and European Sales Manager at IBM, Metzgen will drive the commercial deployments of mobile transaction software.


As the company is planning to roll out commercial mobile ticketing services this year, Metzgen's experience as CEO at OmniTicket Network, the leading provider of turn-key ticketing and access control solutions, will be called upon.


Fred Metzgen said: “This is a great market opportunity for mobile transactions. After successful pilots that have proven the technology, we will see the first widespread deployments.”
