Grant is a mobile media industry veteran, having been around since the iPhone was merely a figment of Steve Jobs imagination. He currently serves as GM of the Kochava Collective where he leads one of the largest independent mobile data marketplaces in the world. Prior to joining Kochava, Grant co-founded ChirpAds, a native mobile ad business funded by Science Inc, which subsequently acquired Playhaven and the companies merged, resulting in a leading edge mobile ad network that supported 25k+ game developers driving monetization and user acquisition globally. Grant led the Playhaven business through its acquisition by RockYou, an SF based social gaming company in 2015. Before that, he joined GradientX as the first non-engineering hire as Head of Sales & Business Development and led their successful commercial launch, resulting in a quick acquisition by SingTel/Amobee, a multi-billion dollar APAC TelCo. Grant started his foray into the wireless space by managing marketing for AskMeNow, the most popular app in the world running on connected Blackberry and Palm Pilot devices in 2004. He has also served in management roles for Softbank funded mobile ad network AdInfuse, which was acquired by global marketing provider Velti and as an executive consultant for OpenX.
