April 7, 2003 - Bytemobile, the company dedicated to delivering pure, optimised access to network operators, service providers and enterprises, today announced that Brian Heaney has joined the company as vice president of engineering. Heaney will direct Bytemobile’s engineering team and the development of the company’s data optimisation, client and service solutions.

“Brian’s deep experience in software and client-server platform development is already making a strong contribution to Bytemobile, especially as we expand our data access solutions to enterprise customers,” said Bytemobile Executive Chairman Hatim Tyabji. “Additionally, he’s a seasoned builder and leader of teams, which is important as our engineering group grows.”

Heaney joins Bytemobile with 20 years of experience in engineering and engineering management. He spent the last seven years as senior vice president of engineering at Liberate Technologies where he was responsible for building and managing their engineering organisation of more than 100 engineers and developing three generations of client-server platforms for interactive television applications.
