Augme Technologies Names Media & Entertainment Leader Robbee Minicola
to Board of Directors
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Augme Technologies, Inc.
(OTCQB: AUGT) ("Augme(R)") ("the Company"), a technology and services
leader in interactive media and mobile marketing and mobile
advertising, today announced that Robbee Minicola has joined the
Company's Board of Directors as an Independent Director.
"Robbee's intrinsic understanding of the media industry and her depth
of knowledge in the mobile space makes her an outstanding addition to
the Augme Board," noted Robert F. Hussey, CEO of Augme Technologies.
"Her skills effectively work the critical link between the content
owner/aggregator, the advertiser, and the consumer, establishing a
win-win-win value equation that has content owners ready to
contribute, advertisers ready to participate and the population eager
to consume. We look forward to the contributions she will make to our
strategy in both direction and innovation, driving significant value
to Augme's growth."
Ms. Minicola (49) has demonstrated experience in leadership and
strategy across traditional and digital media with over 25 years'
experience in the advertising and media industry with a particular
focus on monetizing content across platforms through both advertising
and consumer direct. She currently holds a senior media industry role
at Microsoft working closely with U.S. and international media
enterprises. Prior to her role at Microsoft, Ms. Minicola was the CEO
of Hybrid Television Services Pty Limited, the exclusive licensee of
TiVo in Australia & New Zealand. She also served as a senior
executive in the Seven Media Group, Australia, where she was
responsible for the media conglomerate's digital strategy. Ms.
Minicola previously led the marketing and sales activities of mNet
Group, which built Australia's first 3G network in the Southern
Hemisphere in 2001.
"Led by Hipcricket's success, Augme possesses the necessary
ingredients to lead in the mobile space," said Ms. Minicola. "What
used to be a simplistic approach to mobile has now become a complex
solution requiring much more than mere aesthetic -- it requires an
end-to-end approach encompassing both a customer-centric solution
plus the ability to
harness the data into relevant business
intelligence. Hipcricket has nailed it in their approach across all
digital mobile devices, not just cell phones, and this demonstrates
to me that Augme is one company to watch. I am proud to be a part of
shaping Augme and Hipcricket's future along with the CEO, the
Hipcricket team and the rest of the Board."
