Grahame Lynch, Director of CommsDay, said “The CommsDay Asia-Pacific Awards are the only awards in the region that are directly voted by Asia- Pacific telecom executives. They are, thus, a substantial peer review of excellence.” Lynch said “Ovum beat out tough competition from Gartner, the Economist Intelligence Group and Buddecomm to win the award”.
Antonio Bartolome, Ovum’s Asia-Pacific Managing Director, said, “Asia-Pacific plays a key role in Ovum’s global operations. Presence in Asia-Pacific enables us to better understand the key growth issues in one of the fastest growing technology markets – exactly where Ovum wants to be’.
“This award is a reflection of Ovum’s strong commitment to the Asian region and our local presence” said David Kennedy, Research Director at Ovum. CW Cheung, Consulting Director, received the award on behalf of the Ovum team.
The CommsDay Award winners were voted by the 8,000 readers of CommsDay’s two subscription daily regional editions, and the award ceremony was held in Singapore on 15 June 2009. The award ceremony was sponsored by Nokia Siemens Networks.
Congratulations to Ovum. Tip o’ the hat to Rosemary Masterson, Ovum’s Head of Global Marketing, for passing along this news.
