About Tomas Ahnebrink
Based in Switzerland I have over 30 years of experience in sales, marketing and management within the telco industry. I'm well connected with the wireless network operator community around the world and a proven track record in growing start-up companies into established market leading positions.
I was the principal founder and shareholder and CEO of Swiss Mobility Solutions. With its headquarter in Switzerland and R&D centre in Alicante, the company is a leading developer and provider of smartphone based quality of experience solutions aimed to assess the quality of mobile networks. In March 2014 the company was sold to Gemalto and is today a separate business unit with the Mobile Subscription Services division. At the time of transaction, the company was employing around 40 people and serving around 30 network operators around the world.
I was also one of the principal founders and shareholders of SwissQual – a leading provider of telecom test & measurement systems with around 90 employees. Since the start of SwissQual in early 2000 he was in charge of Sales & Marketing. In January 2006 SwissQual was sold to Spirent for over CHF 70m. At the time of the transaction, the company was serving over 50 network operators and equipment vendors throughout the world and had annual revenues in excess of CHF 30m.
Immediately before and during the formation of SwissQual in 2000, I was a sales and marketing consultant to Nokia Networks. From 1998 to 2000, I was the Marketing Director at Comfone (a joint venture between Vodafone and Swisscom to provide cellular telephone international roaming services). From 1995 to 1998, I was Head of Sales of the test and measurement business unit (QVoice) at Ascom and between 1990 and 1995, the General Manager at Scientific Development Inc. (SDI), a provider of vehicle location systems. Earlier in my career, I held various positions in planning and sales support, as well as software design, development and in-field implementation at Digitron (a provider of automated material handling solutions.
