We're proud to announce that Tim Ward, XConnect’s VP Number Information Services, has been elected to the MEF board.

Voted for by MEF members, this is testament to Tim’s standing in the industry and his dedication, drive for improvements and passion for telecoms. Tim comes from a telecom infrastructure background, leading sales, marketing and strategy, and has participated in industry work groups including GSMA, ITU, i3F and MEF, where global number registry and data sharing projects have been top of the agenda.

Tim is a strong advocate of the MEF's Codes of Conduct, where XConnect was one of the early signatories of the "Trust in Enterprise Messaging Business SMS Code of Practice" and sees self-regulation, based on common values and priorities as the route to a safe and trusted ecosystem.

This appointment, alongside that of Eli Katz, CEO & Founder of XConnect, joining the i3forum Board, ensures that we can work together with some of the brightest minds in the industry to address the challenges we collectively face.
