Syniverse appoints CEO

26 February 2015 |


Syniverse has appointed Stephen Gray as president and chief executive at the company, effective immediately.

Gray was appointed interim president and CEO in August 2014 and James Attwood, chairman of the Syniverse board of directors, said that over the last six months of reviewing candidates, Gray was the ideal choice.

“As interim president and CEO Steve brought energy and focus to the business, led significant improvements to Syniverse’s operations, and reoriented the company around a strategy based on profitable growth, continued innovation, and investment in key areas to best address the needs of both our enterprise and mobile operator customers,” Attwood said.

“We believe Steve’s leadership and knowledge of the business will propel Syniverse’s long-term success.”

Gray said that he was excited to take on the role and continue the initiatives he began in August.

“Thanks to the hard work of the mobile industry’s brightest employees combined with our unique assets and the support of The Carlyle Group, we have the right team and strategies in place to continue to enable our customers’ success, and I look forward to what’s ahead.”
