James Enck was, until recently, part of a principal investing group within a Wall Street bank where he was primarily responsible for sourcing and executing private investments in the broad TMT spectrum globally, in addition to selective opportunities in the public equity and credit markets. Prior to that, he was a European telecom analyst for and a global telecom strategist for Daiwa Securities SMBC Europe Ltd. He was one of the first in Europe to write about access independent voice and its potential impacts, in late 2002/early 2003. This extended to an exploration of the voice/IM mash-up possibilities, which came together conclusively in September 2003. According to Enck, he was the first investment banking analyst to write about Skype, within a few days of its launch. He has been a speaker, panelist and moderator at many universities and telecomm functions across Europe and the United States including the Telco 2.0 Industry Brainstorm, London; FFTH Council Europe Annual Conference, Barcelona; Cambridge-MIT Institute symposium on Internet neutrality, London; VON Europe (as an indusry keynote), Berlin and London; Telecom Executive Network panel with Skype, Yahoo!, Microsoft and Google; London; and a seminar on P2P video, Columbia University in New York City.
