SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bzur Haun, CEO of Visage, today announced that Mani Zarrehparvar will be joining Visage as President, responsible for operations, product development, strategy, engineering, finance and marketing.
Zarrehparvar joins Visage from AT&T where he held senior product leadership roles, most recently as Director, Mobility Product Management. Over the past six years Mani led the development of AT&T's Global Managed Mobility (GMM) solution, LTE monetization strategy, and contracts and pricing initiatives for AT&T's core mobility business. Prior to joining AT&T, Mani held strategy and product leadership positions at Asurion, where he worked side-by-side with Haun to build the largest enterprise mobility offering at the time.
"Mani's keen understanding of enterprise mobility creates a huge advantage for Visage as we further develop our product offerings and strategic relationships," said Haun. "His coming on board is just one more success metric in what has been a very productive year for Visage."
In the past twelve months, Visage saw its strongest year in sales, launched Visage MXP, the first solution to automate and itemize employee paid mobile expenses, and deepened its strategic relationship with Concur, the leading travel and expense management provider. Visage also significantly expanded its enterprise reach with the addition of major channel partners Communication Management Services, Enterprise Mobility Management, G Squared Wireless, Symmetry Managed Services Group, Mobility Management Group, MobileWare, TD Mobility and Telapprise.
"From my role at AT&T I had clear visibility into how mobility management is evolving in an industry that will soon be characterized by literally hundreds of billions of endpoints. The ability to aggregate, understand and leverage the exponential growth of data generated by those devices is already a critical component in successful mobility management," Zarrehparvar said. "Managing the growth of mobility in the future will require advanced platforms with data analytics. Visage is uniquely positioned to be the core platform for enterprises to absorb, analyze and leverage this torrent of data as they strategically and tactically manage exploding mobility programs."
Zarrehparvar holds a BS degree in Biology from San Francisco State University and an MA degree in Economics from University of California, Santa Barbara.
