BELLEVUE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 -- Hipcricket®, Inc. (OTCBB: HIPP) (OTCQB: HIPP), the leader in mobile engagement and analytics, has bolstered its senior sales staff to take advantage of the company's expanding business pipeline and to better serve the growing needs of its major-brand customers.
The company has created two new national senior sales positions, appointing Phil Miano as senior vice president eastern U.S. sales and promoting Matt Nelson to vice president of western U.S. sales. The company also promoted John Green to vice president of sales.
The appointment of these seasoned sales leaders follows other recent hires that expanded Hipcricket's sales presence in New York City, San Francisco, Detroit and Boston. The company recently reported a record level of fiscal third quarter bookings (the dollar value of contracts signed during the quarter), up 51% over the fiscal third quarter of 2013.
"These three highly experienced and dynamic sales professionals are deeply in-tune with the mobile market, particularly how Hipcricket's unique value proposition relates to our clients," said Hipcricket COO, Doug Stovall. "Their appointments highlight our growing mobile advertising capabilities and they will help us to more effectively leverage the tremendous revenue-generating potential of our industry-leading AD LIFE mobile engagement platform."
Since 1998, Miano has extensively engaged in all aspects of digital and mobile sales, including leading the launch of mobile advertising at AOL. As AOL's national sales director, he oversaw the strategic and tactical aspects of mobile advertising for more than 30 AOL mobile brands, including MapQuest, TMZ, Shoutcast and Fanhouse. He was responsible for a number of industry "firsts," including the Advertising.com iPhone network, expandable "plays everywhere" mobile rich media and early-stage behavioral targeting on the mobile device. Before AOL, Miano was Microsoft's first U.S. hire to lead its global mobile advertising efforts. More recently, he was senior vice president of network development and demand sales at Collider Media, a startup focused on user level mobile targeting, which was acquired in June 2012 by Videology.
Nelson, who has led Hipcricket's west coast sales efforts since 2010, has a 15-year proven track record in digital and mobile sales. He was previously sales manager of west coast advertising for the Weather Channel, where he established key relations with Microsoft, Visa and Clorox. Prior to Hipcricket, Nelson managed a number of major brands at NAVTEQ, including Best Western, Shell and Wells Fargo, delivering advertising into in-car GPS, personal navigation devices (PND) and mobile mapping applications.
Since joining Hipcricket in 2012, Green has excelled with marquee Hipcricket Fortune 100 brands. Prior to Hipcricket, he worked in Chicago's broadcast and cable industry with leading organizations such as CBS and Comcast, where he led highly successful advertising sales campaigns. To date, Green has sold more than $200 million in advertising through digital sites, cable and broadcast TV.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
