Monster Offers CEO Wayne Irving Nominated for CTIA B!G Idea Award
Wayne Irving Nominated in the Category of The Mobile Visionary
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., - Monster Offers™ (OTCBB: MONT), a leading Daily Deal analytics provider and aggregator and innovator in the field of mobile marketing advertising consulting, today is very pleased to announce that its CEO, Wayne Irving II, has been nominated for the CTIA B!G Idea Award in the category of The Mobile Visionary.
CTIA-The Wireless Association® is an international nonprofit membership organization that has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984. Membership in the association includes wireless carriers and their suppliers, as well as providers and manufacturers of wireless data services and products. Earlier this year, CTIA membership was invited to nominate outstanding individuals in the wireless industry - in particular, those mobile champions and visionaries who are transforming the mobile ecosystem - for its annual, highly publicized B!G Idea Awards. Mr. Irving was nominated for in the category of “The Mobile Visionary,” for demonstrating an extraordinary expertise and skill in the mobile communications and marketing arena.
Among a number of impressive accomplishments over the past year, the one that stands out for Mr. Irving is Monster Offers’ acquisition of Ad Shark, Inc., an innovative leader in mobile marketing advertising consulting. As a result of the merger transaction, Ad Shark’s portfolio of over 1,000 clients were brought under the public company umbrella of Monster Offers. Mr. Irving had the vision to recognize the notable synergies of the combined entity, including Ad Shark's client base, whose businesses represent target buyers for its Daily Deal analytics.
Throughout his career, Mr. Irving has demonstrated an uncanny knack for identifying and capitalizing upon opportunities for establishing key strategic alliances, partnerships and acquisitions that lead to business growth. In addition to the Ad Shark transaction, one can point to Monster Offer's alliances with Hozio, an online marketing agency that provides boutique advertising services to small and medium sized businesses, and with WOWIO, an online marketing agency that creates, distributes, markets, and monetizes published material, each of which have increased the company's scope and reach. Also, its recent acquisition of big media clients such as The Denver Post has increased the Company’s corporate visibility and, the company believes, enhances its reputation and prospects for success in its core fields of business operations.
The nomination also notes Mr. Irving’s commitment to making a difference as it relates to saving lives through technological contributions to thwarting Distracted Driving. A father of four, Mr. Irving has a personal mission to educate teen drivers through his outreach program Text Kills® (www.textkills.com). Text Kills® has been so successful that Mr. Irving was invited to Washington DC this Friday, to present smartphone technologies that he has invented at the FCC’s Distracted Driving Technology Conference.
