Shazam investor and Numbase CEO Ayman Zakaria Jomaa, now also investing in Shout as well as joining their Board
Numbase Group founder and Chairman Ayman Zakaria Jomaa has been elected to be a member on the board of Shout TV, a company specializing in live quizzes and fan engagement that rewards players with real prizes. Shout is best known for driving mobile fan engagement for the biggest sports team in the world, Real Madrid C. F. The "Real Madrid Shout Challenge" game has rewarded players in over 210 countries.
In addition to Ayman's board seat with Shout TV, the Numbase Group has placed a financial investment into Shout TV to form a strategic partnership and become the leader in prized back trivia competition.
The recognition for the annual evaluation of 2015 was based on several key indicators: Numbase Limited came first in Zain’s net revenue, Media Phone came first in overall evaluation and Bulk SMS Revenue, Qanwat came first in RBT performance, Beecell came first in the target achievement, and AiwaGulf came first in the best account manager and partner relationship.
"I am honoured to join the board of a company like Shout hoping that Numbase Group and myself can offer as much value to Shout whether on the advisory or operational sides," Jomaa said.
Mr. Jomaa is a serial entrepreneur in the mobile and technology sectors, having established and invested in a large number of startup companies since 2003. He is an investor in Shazam, the world's leading music identification app through one of his companies and he is the founder and CEO of Muzeit, a "music social platform and app".
"We are privileged to welcome Ayman on to the Shout board of directors. He is an impressive individual with equally impressive entrepreneurial experience in the mobile application space. The opportunity to work with Ayman and Numbase to extend Shout's reach of over 130 million social media sports fans into the global mobile operator channel and billions of smart phone users will create significant value for users and stakeholders," said Shout CEO and Director Darl McBride.
The "Real Madrid Shout Challenge" game has rewarded players with prizes ranging from Amazon.com gift cards, Real Madrid jerseys, Apple TVs, Xbox Ones to Ducati motor cycles.
