GARDEN CITY, N.Y., Feb. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:MOBQ) ("Mobiquity" or "the Company"), which is attempting to build the largest national location-based mobile advertising and app engagement network, has named Thomas M. Arnost, executive chairman.
Previously chairman and director, Arnost will more actively participate in initiatives that drive Company growth.
Before joining the Company in November of 2013, Arnost served as co-president of Univision Communications, Inc. Station Group. He served as co-president of the Univision Television Station Group from 1997 to 2006 and prior to that, served as executive vice president from 1994 to 1996. During his tenure with Univision, Arnost's vision and leadership helped contribute to the station group's unprecedented growth. Total station group revenues grew from under $120 million in 1993 to over $600 million in 2006, just prior to the sale of the company to a group of private equity companies. Also during his tenure, Univision's market value grew from $500 million to $14 billion.
Mobiquity Technologies has the largest shopping mall-based beacon advertising network in the country. The network footprint currently includes 220 premier U.S. shopping malls and will grow to more than 240 mall locations in the coming months through Mobiquity Technologies' exclusive mall relationships. The network presently covers 3,000 unique retailers with nearly 25,000 storefronts, and will give the Mobiquity Networks' advertisers the opportunity to reach out to approximately 200 million monthly mall shoppers, in real-time, just as they are deciding which retailers to visit and what brands to buy.
"The state-of-the-art technology developed by Mobiquity Networks has enabled marketers to move away from simple mass media to now reap the benefits of mass personalization," Arnost said. "The Company's mission is to enhance the consumer brick and mortar shopping experience through the delivery of highly targeted and relevant content to individuals, but on a massive scale.
It's a win-win-win for the consumer, the retailer and the brand. The key is giving consumers what they want and expect, at exactly the right time, when they are actually in the shopping process."
"Relatively few have matched Tom's level of business success," said Dean Julia, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Mobiquity Technologies. "He has been a tremendous asset over the year. We look forward to more of Tom's involvement, especially given his strong belief in our team and business model."
