One-Line Bio

Focused on driving richer consumer experiences, with a line of sight to revenue, through the global mobile communications industry.


Mobile Point View is the blog of Paul Ruppert, a journalist, former C level executive and thought leader in the mobile industry.

In addition to having had a P&L responsibility of a $190 million revenue messaging product portfolio, I have also been a consultant whose clients included Facebook, Syniverse, Warburg Pincus, Norwest Ventures and other private equity, venture capital and mobile companies. Global Point View Ltd., is focused on commercial strategy, global market entry demands and valuation building for the mobile industry ecosystem as reflected by innovative disruptors, the effects of the OTT players and traditional MNOs.

As an online journalist for three years I was the Managing Editor of Mobile Messaging 2.0, which covered the range of wireless ecosystem topics until it was folded in 2008.

My posts at MM2.0 as well as at Mobilepointview have been cited by technoscenti media including Om Malik, Portio Research and others.

In addition to my commercial expertise, I am the co-author of two key SMS cross protocol inter-operability patents in the US and Europe, which enable SMS to be delivered across the globe and around the corner.

I live in the suburbs of Washington, DC, and my experience in the global mobile industry have taken me to 88 countries.
