CCS Insight Mobilises for Growth

Forecasting and business development appointments prime CCS Insight for expansion into new markets

Telecommunications analyst group, CCS Insight, has moved to address new business opportunities with two senior appointments, Marina Koytcheva as director of forecasting and Olga Holin as business development manager for EMEA. The rapid development of mobile platforms is creating business opportunities across all industries and the appointments will enable CCS Insight to expand its customer base into sectors such as applications, media, healthcare and automotive. Marina joins from Nokia's Global Strategic Intelligence team and Olga from Informa Telecoms and Media, where she managed relationships with tier-one operator and handset manufacturers.

Shaun Collins, CEO of CCS Insight, said: "The rapid evolution of mobile is driving product, service and process development opportunities across all businesses. But there are many organisations looking for trusted third parties, like CCS Insight, to help them invest in the right platforms for the long term. The need for pinpoint analysis is crucial as the industry goes through unprecedented change. With this in mind, we've also promoted Kester Mann to senior analyst to support our clients in Europe and in the US. Our tailored approach to the market analysis and consultancy we provide at each client engagement is winning us business in new sectors looking to exploit mobile. I'm delighted to welcome Marina and Olga into the business and look forward to working with them to build on our existing blue-chip customer base of mobile operators, Web players, software providers and device manufacturers, to name just a few."

The new hires follow the recent expansion of CCS Insight's research services with the launch of a new quarterly report — App VU Global — which combines extensive data with incisive analysis of the performance of software stores and the global apps market. This unique product helps brands to capitalise on this rapidly evolving market by identifying important trends and making detailed comparisons across all the major app stores.

Marina Koytcheva has many years of market analysis experience in the telco and financial services industries. Having held roles in Nokia's Global Strategic Intelligence team, she will be responsible for providing in-depth forecasts to CCS Insight's customers, enabling a more extensive service and better customer experience.

Olga Holin joins CCS Insight from Informa Telecoms and Media, where she managed accounts for major operators and phone-makers. With previous business development roles at Gartner and her ability to speak five languages fluently, Olga will be responsible for expanding the company's reach in EMEA.
