Oslo-based never.no, provider of technology connecting broadcasters, brands, outdoor media owners, and digital screen networks with online and mobile consumers, has appointed Scott Davies as vice-president sales for the United Kingdom and Ireland, effective immediately.
The new position represents a continued expansion of never.no’s market reach. Davies is based in Manchester, England.
“never.no has established a reputation for the outstanding quality of its technology and for its vision of how that technology can benefit a wide variety of businesses,” says Davies.
Davies co-founded Million-2-1 Limited, a mobile interactive tech company serving businesses and consumers in 2002. He served as operations director of the Manchester, England-based company until it became part of IGT U.K. in 2009. He earlier was part of the founding team and director of Internet production startup Eunite Ltd., which was sold to N. Brown Plc in 2000. Prior to that, Davies held a variety of management and creative positions with information technology companies including sports-dot-com venture Sportal.
“With his knowledge of the industry and in particular of the distinctive U.K. and Irish marketplace, Scott will make an outstanding addition to our team,” says Lars Lauritzsen, CEO of never.no.
