Opera Mediaworks now seeks to seize greater opportunities in mobile advertising in the Asia-Pacific as it names its managing director for Asia, Vikas Gulati.
A press statement by the San Mateo,California-based subsidiary of Opera Software ASA said Gulati will be based in Singapore and from there he will direct operations for the building and ramping up of revenues in the region for its mobile ad platform.
It added the focus will be on key geographies such as India, Indonesia, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand.
"We see huge opportunities in mobile video adoption and in turn, mobile video advertising," the press statement quoted Gulati as saying.
Gulati had previously served as vice president at Vserv, a mobile ad exchange.
