Zurich, August 24, 2011
Myriad Group, a global leader in mobile technology, said it plans to expand its global presence with the opening of new offices in India, Mexico and Dubai.
The Switzerland-based group, which has shipped over 3.8 billion software applications on more than 2.2 billion phones, said it is keen to boost its presence in Asia, Middle East and North Africa and Latin America.
The three new locations are part of a broader global expansion effort which adds to Myriad’s extensive global presence, with offices in Switzerland, UK, France, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and the US, said a company statement.
As a result of the expansion, Myriad will be better positioned to scale and support its existing and new customers’ growing needs, it added.
The new offices in Dubai Silicon Oasis and Gurgaon in India will set out to capitalize on the ever-increasing demand for key mobile software and services, as well as supporting existing regional and global customers.
The company's comprehensive portfolio includes browsers, messaging, Java, social networking, user interfaces and middleware for all types of mobile phones, from ultra-low cost handsets to advanced smartphones.
In Mexico, the recently opened Myriad office is already supporting the company’s five-year exclusive partnership with Telefónica, delivering social networking to over 140 million customers in 13 countries.
“Our new offices will not only enable us to meet and capitalize on growing demand, it will also allow us to better serve our customers in these rapidly growing markets,” said Simon Wilkinson, CEO of Myriad Group.
“The increase in our global footprint underlines our commitment to both our customers and our desire to be at the forefront of partnership-led innovation in these regions,” he added.
