Penrillian, the mobile software and applications specialist, has appointed Ian Hetherington as head of sales and marketing. In this newly created role Ian will be responsible for setting sales and marketing strategy and commercial business objectives as well as building the commercial team as the company targets growth in new markets.

Penrillian already has a proven track record working with leading mobile operators, handset manufacturers and financial services organisations. The company is made up of experienced, mobile software and application-savvy, traditional technical engineers with a deep knowledge of mobile technology and mobile security.

The company works across all platforms eg iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry, and if you use a mobile phone it is likely that you will have used at least one application developed by Penrillian. The company is increasingly involved in mobile innovation and product development helping mobile entrepreneurs to develop market-defining products through its agile prototyping process.

Ian Hetherington joins from Niche Computer Systems and will report to the Board of Directors which includes Penrillian’s founder and Chief Technology Officer, Charles Weir who was instrumental in the development of the world’s first smartphone, the Ericsson R380, in the late 1990s.

Commenting on his new challenge, Ian said: “The mobile software industry is growing rapidly and the work that is done at Penrillian has a real impact on people’s day-to-day lives. The Penrillian team is highly technically skilled with a great sense of pride in the work they do and I am looking forward to taking their expertise to a wider market.”

Welcoming Ian to the role Charles Weir said: “Here at Penrillian we’re really excited about the prospect of appealing to new customers in the new mobile money market. Ian has a great track record leading sales teams in the past; we believe he's going to make a huge difference, and we’re delighted to have him with us.”
