Mobica strengthens leadership team with three big appointments

Software services company, Mobica has strengthened its leadership team with three key appointments. Current Executive Chairman, Simon Wilkinson, becomes permanent CEO as the company continues to develop its offering to some of the world’s leading organisations in silicon, automotive, media, FinTech and telecoms.

Simon joined Mobica’s Board of Directors in March 2017 and has since played a key role in strengthening the company’s customer footprint with a series of leading international brands including Google, Facebook, Intel, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Arm and Jaguar Land Rover. Simon has a successful track record in founding and investing in technology businesses, both in the UK and Silicon Valley, including Magic4, Myriad Group and Reality Mine.

Simon is joined on the Board by Richard Haywood, who takes on the role of Chairman. Richard holds a number of advisory and non-executive roles within the technology and legal sectors. He is also Chairman of Clarilis Limited, the legal document automation software company, and a Non-Executive Director of FinTech start-up, Asterisk Network Solutions Limited.

Completing the trio of recent appointments, Stefan Marxreiter joins the company as Chief Operating Officer, responsible for further developing Mobica’s software delivery capabilities globally. Stefan brings more than 25 years’ experience of building and managing teams within global organisations, 17 of which have been spent within the automotive and services sector.

This is such an exciting period of growth for Mobica and I feel the time is right for me to take a full-time strategic role, leading our team to realise the vision of doubling the size of our engineering organisation which will support us in expanding our engagements with a series of leading international brands including multiple Silicon Valley household names and leading car manufacturers.
