CEO of Flexion
JI founded Flexion in 2007 with a mission to help mobile game and app developers monetize their products more effectively. Having experienced how difficult it was to monetise and find distribution for apps with the traditional Pay-Per-Download model as a developer gave me the idea to help others in the same situation. The company has since become the leading enabling solution and covers a range of monetization and discovery features. Flexion works with most of the top tier game developers and some of the best service providers in areas such as carrier billing, advertising, app discovery and search. Prior to Flexion I worked with mobile game developers and aggregators and I have had the opportunity to grow a global network of contacts within the mobile content industry for 13 years.
