    Nov 5, 2012 3:38 PM | about stocks: TSYS

    TeleCommunication Systems, a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, announced its opening of a new sales office located in Johannesburg, South Africa. The company has stated that this office will act as a focal point for its marketing and sales activities throughout Africa.

    "In recent years, we've intensified our focus on international expansion, particularly in Africa," said Jay Whitehurst, senior vice president, Commercial Software Group, TeleCommunication Systems. "By establishing a sales office in Johannesburg, we are able to demonstrate our strong commitment to this key market and provide an opportunity to showcase our location-based services and offer customers competitive platform solutions."

    Additionally, TeleCommunication Systems, as part of its announcement, confirmed that Andy Minnaar has been hired to serve as managing director of the new location. Part of Mr. Minnaar's responsibilities will include overseeing the operation and sales of the company's complete line of commercial software solutions, including Location-Based Services (LBS). With more than a decade of communication technology and managerial experience in the African wireless sector, Mr. Minnaar previously worked for Glenayre (acquired by Movius), where he was credited with spearheading the company's voice messaging business in Africa, a move that made Movius the preferred voice messaging partner to the largest network operator on the continent.

    "A logical next step for TeleCommunication Systems is to expand our activity into the African market, and we have asked Andy Minnaar to lead our efforts in that region. Andy has a strong background in the African mobile telecommunications industry and is a seasoned executive with a passion for innovation and finding the right solutions for customers," stated Brian McNealy, senior vice president, global commercial sales, TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. " His experience will serve us well as we continue to expand our wireless solutions and platforms offerings into international markets."

    TeleCommunication Systems has become a world-wide industry leader in high-reliability location-based services. Furthermore, the company provides complete, end-to-end wireless LBS solutions, including both branded and private-label applications, infrastructure, mapping, and content for leading consumer brands, content providers, and voice service providers worldwide. In addition to being the industry's leading provider of LBS infrastructure, TeleCommunication Systems also provided the world's first wireless location platform.
