People: Gurley Leaves Symon, Focusing On Mobile Again
September 5, 2012 by Dave Haynes
Steve Gurley has left his Senior VP position at Symon Communications to go back into start-up land – focused again on mobile marketing.
Gurley is contacting people via LinkedIn to say his new company – yet to be named – “will be focused on helping client companies take advantage of the mobile marketing, mobile payment and/or mobile content opportunities enabled by Near Field Communications (NFC) technologies.”
Plano, TX-based Gurley had a company from 2000-2008 focused on mobile, but as you may have noticed the level of attention in the marketplace for mobile just a tad higher now than it was four years ago.
Gurley – longtimers in this sector will know – has been arguably the loudest person out there advocating the need for digital signage people to get mobile integrated into their offers.
Best wishes, Steve!
