SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CREDO, the mobile carrier with a conscience, named Ray Morris CEO. Morris joins CREDO with more than 30 years of experience in the wireless industry. Under Morris's leadership, CREDO is empowering more progressive consumers to fight for social good through everyday acts of commerce.
"CREDO leads the way in making mobile services a force for social justice," Morris said. "There has never been a more important time to stand up and make your voice heard. And CREDO makes it easy for all of us to make conscious decisions about the products and services we select as consumers."
Morris joined the wireless industry in the late 1980s. Since then, he has held executive roles in mobile services, marketing technology, engineering and hosting, including COO at GreatCall Inc., a wireless services startup whose brands include Jitterbug, a wireless service. Most recently, Morris served as CEO and CTO of ClickBank, an e-commerce marketplace with more than 200 million global customers.
Morris has been making significant engineering and customer service systems enhancements from day one to ensure CREDO provides its members with the best possible product and experience. These changes include investing in the CREDO network, the nation's largest and most dependable 4G LTE network. In addition, he brought on John Harris as CFO this past summer.
But it's Morris's deep alignment with CREDO's progressive activism that led him to join the company to find greater fulfillment and meaning in his work.
"I have been a great fan and supporter of CREDO since its early days. For me, this role is the job of a lifetime," Morris said. "This is a company where I can not only use my professional skills, but also feed my soul. We've donated more than $81 million to further causes I am passionate about, and now have more than 4.4 million activists in our movement. We can do so much more."
Since joining CREDO in March 2016, Morris has invested heavily in CREDO Donations, the company's philanthropy program. In partnership with nonprofits, CREDO Donations has powered Amnesty International's long-term campaigns that increase respect for human rights around the world, helped Social Security Works hold the line on no cuts to Social Security, helped fund NARAL's Men for Choice programs, and supported Color of Change and their campaigns standing against police violence in African-American communities. In October, CREDO members will have the opportunity to vote to help Bold's unlikely alliance of farmers, progressives and Tribal Nations stand against risky fossil fuel projects like Keystone XL and the Dakota Access pipeline.
"People underestimate how big of an impact they can make," Morris said. "The combination of donations and activism at CREDO is unique. What other company donates millions to progressive causes and organizes millions of activists through protests, calls and direct action? Our members shape the direction of this country and speak for those who need a voice."
Founded in 1985, CREDO gives individuals the power to make positive social change every day. Whenever members use a CREDO product or service, they generate critical donations for progressive causes (at no extra cost) and fund vital activism work. Since 1985, CREDO has donated more than $81 million to progressive nonprofits, and the company has built a network of more than 4 million activists.
