Music Intelligence Solutions, Inc. Announces David Meredith as CEO
Former VeriSign Senior Vice President and General Manager Brings
Wireless and Converged Services Experience to Digital Media Discovery
DANA POINT, CA--(Marketwire - November 07, 2007) - The Board of
Directors for Music Intelligence Solutions, Inc., a global digital
media corporation, announced that David Meredith has been appointed
to serve as the company's Chief Executive Officer.
Meredith served as Senior Vice President and General Manager at
VeriSign, the leading provider of digital infrastructure for the
networked world, where he successfully managed the growth of the
Wireless Commerce Division which served over 150 communication and
media customers globally.
"The board unanimously selected David Meredith after an exhaustive
CEO search based on his track record leading a complex organization,
as well as his strong executive and personal qualities," says Regina
Llopis, Music Intelligence Solution's non-executive chairman.
"Music is a key component of social networking as over a third of
social network members use music in their profiles and ad spending
globally on social networks will approach $3 billion by 2010. While
mobile music downloads increased by two thirds in 2006 and global
digital music sales doubled in 2006, other online music services such
as Internet streaming radio will exceed 150 million users in the next
few years. Music Intelligence Solutions can tap into these trends by
transforming digital media classification, access and relevance in
the same way that search engines have done for online data," says
David Meredith in Dana Point, CA, while attending the exclusive
Wireless Influencers conference, the world's premier executive forum
focused on the growth and future of wireless and digital media.
"As we launch the next generation of our web 2.0 interactive
consumer-focused solutions, David's strategic vision, his proven
ability to lead top-performing teams and his track record of
execution will enable us to capture our full market potential," adds
"Music Intelligence Solutions' unique and patented technology has the
potential to fundamentally enhance the global consumer's experience
with rich digital media, especially digital music across multiple
platforms including mobile devices. It's an honor to join the
leadership team," adds Meredith.
Prior to VeriSign, Meredith worked at CGI, formerly American
Management Systems, as Vice President of Global Solutions for the
Communications, Media and Entertainment industry sectors. CGI's
clients include eight of the top ten global communication service
providers and CGI's annualized revenue run rate is $3.5 billion.
Meredith successfully managed three solution lines for Mobile Data
Services, Billing and Customer Relationship Management across
multiple countries. Previously, Meredith held various management
roles at diversified financial services and marketing leader Capital
One during its spin-out into a stand-alone company and the ensuing
period of rapid growth in customers and revenues.
