Motricity Lands Vodafone CIO And $30m

From Vodafone CIO joins Motricity

Motricity, the world's leading mobile content and solutions provider, today named former Vodafone executive Tony McAlister as chief information officer with responsibility for the company's technology initiatives and overall management of IT resources. McAlister brings over 25 years experience managing technology including telecommunications, content delivery and e-Commerce

This comes right after Motricity snags $30m and hires 140

The funding round was led by Advanced Equities Inc., a venture capital investment bank based in Chicago. Previous Motricity investors also participating in the round include Technology Crossover Ventures, New Enterprise Associates and Intel Capital.

I love their motto "Someone is going to create the Amazon, the eBay, the Google of mobile content," Wuerch said. "We believe that is us."

Definitely one to keep an eye on.
