-- The newly founded Prepaid Wireless Association (PWA), The Official Association of the Prepaid Wireless Industry, is attracting attention as it meets the demands of industry professionals at the helm of an increasingly successful wireless sector. The PWA allows its members to network with fellow industry leaders, share referrals, promote events, and market their products and services. Members benefit from being listed in, and having access to, a membership directory that puts them in touch with the professionals that can offer services and information that bolsters their own professional efforts. Members also receive cutting edge news and information on the prepaid wireless industry, establishing them at the forefront of this growing sector.
Indeed, the prepaid sector of the wireless industry is on a fast track. In 2013, prepaid wireless sales comprised approximately 23% of the wireless market. Estimates predict that the industry will see over 100 million subscribers in 2014, due to the economic appeal of prepaid plans in an uncertain national economy. Industry research supports this outlook. According to NPD, a consumer market research group (http://www.apple.com/
), prepaid smartphone unit sales doubled in the first quarter of 2013. And research conducted by Atlantic-ACM, a strategic consulting and research firm (http://www.atlantic-acm.com/index.php?option=com_content&...
), the prepaid industry will continue to grow over the course of 2014 and into 2015.
Vice President and CTO Alex Brioni and Operations Director Neil Crabtree are pioneering this groundbreaking association with years of expertise in the wireless industry. Ms. Brioni brings over 14 years of experience in both technology and management to the organization, holding a Masters Degree in Computer Engineering from McGill University. Mr. Crabtree holds a J.D. and an M.B.A, accompanied by over 30 years of management experience. Led by two professionals with vast industry experience, the PWA is poised to become an essential asset to prepaid wireless professionals across the nation.
