SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 15, 2012) - IQTalent Partners, a boutique executive search firm, announced today that Tom Owen has joined the firm as a Partner to help lead the Mobile and Wireless Technologies practice.
Prior to joining IQTalent Partners, Tom has served as Advisor and Consultant to many startups focused on the mobile sector and has worked closely with most of the top companies in the wireless ecosystem. Tom's industry experience and integrity have built an impressive reputation with partners and clients including Yahoo!, Bing, Navteq, Qualcomm, Where (PayPal), RIM, Location Labs, Networks In Motion (TCS), as well as the Tier 1 and Tier 2 US Wireless Operators. Prior to his advisory work, Tom has worked in the mobile advertising and content space and was Vice President of Wireless Business Development at deCarta, the leading independent enabler of location-based services.
"My entire professional career, I have gravitated toward building lasting relationships as foundations for partnerships. Getting to know the people as well as the value proposition of a deal are often equally important, especially in the small sectors like Mobile and Wireless, and along the way I have had the privilege of connecting some great people with new roles in partner companies. When Chris approached me about joining IQTalent Partners, he presented a great opportunity to formalize this passion in executive search," Owen said.
"Tom Owen has always had a genuine interest in growing businesses. We are excited that not only will he help grow IQTalent Partners, but that same passion will help our clients grow their products, services, and companies," said Chris Murdock, Founder and Senior Partner of IQTalent Partners.
