Vancouver-based QuickMobile today announced the election of Philip C. Wolf, founder and chairman of PhoCusWright Inc., as chairman of the board for the company. QuickMobile develops custom, branded mobile event apps for all mobile platforms and devices. The company’s interactive mobile applications and websites help meeting planners and organizers deliver interactive event contact to sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees alike.

“Philip is an icon, visionary, and luminary in the travel industry," says Patrick Payne, president and CEO of QuickMobile. "He is probably one of the most connected, well-known, and respected senior statesman in the United States, and we are fortunate that he has agreed to serve as our chairman of the board. This is really a home run for QuickMobile, and we are excited about his ongoing contributions to the success of our business.”

“As we have experienced at our acclaimed PhoCusWright Conference, mobile technology is having a major and comprehensive impact on all types of meetings," says Wolf. "QuickMobile unlocks the potential of meetings by providing interactive, dynamic mobile solutions that engage audiences. I look forward to working with Patrick and his team to help build upon the company’s recent growth and expand QuickMobile’s footprint around the world.”
