Juha Christensen joins Action Engine Corporation
Microsoft announced last November that Juha Christensen was leaving the company, where he has been working as Microsoft VP for Mobile Devices Marketing Group.

Action Engine Corporation now announced that Juha Christensen has joined the Company’s board of directors. He is also one of the co-founders of Symbian Ltd, developer of OS for mobile devices. We have a review of Action Engine, a content platform available for Windows, Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.

According to Craig Eisler, CEO and founder of Action Engine, "We are delighted to have someone of Juha’s caliber step into this role at Action Engine. He has been instrumental in helping companies like Microsoft and Symbian achieve significant market success and is highly recognized across the wireless community for his contributions to the advancement of the mobile communications industry as a whole.” Eisler continued, “We look forward to teaming with Juha to leverage his expertise and strong industry relationships as Action Engine continues to expand its leadership position in the Advanced Data Services market."

Juha Christensen commented, “I am looking forward to joining Craig’s team at the Board level. Action Engine has already accomplished what few entrepreneurial companies ever do, especially considering today’s tough economic climate. Action Engine has achieved remarkable traction and respect from global industry leaders such as Orange and Telstra - a reflection of the company’s strong vision, leading technologies and smart, focused management.”

Christensen is regarded as one of the most influential thought-leaders in the mobile arena. He made his foray into the wireless industry as a senior executive for Psion, where he spent six years as a senior-level executive in marketing, sales, product management and product design. Following his tenure at Psion, Christensen co-founded Symbian, a joint venture between Nokia, Ericsson, Panasonic, Psion, Samsung Electronics, Siemens and Sony Ericsson. As a senior leader at Symbian, Christensen oversaw the company’s product management, product planning, marketing, sales, business development and supplier relationships. He also was responsible for Symbian’s North American and Asian operations.

Following a highly successful career with Symbian, Christensen joined Microsoft as the corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Mobile Devices Group, where he drove the division’s overall strategic direction and managed operations, marketing, product planning and product management. Christensen was instrumental in leading the company’s device strategy from a WAP-based approach to a smart device strategy and led teams responsible for securing key business development deals, including distribution agreements with more than two-dozen mobile operators who are currently in the process of shipping Microsoft Windows Mobile devices. Christensen also guided negotiations between Microsoft and leading device manufacturers, includiJung Motorola, High Tech Computer, MiTAC, TCL, HP, Dell and Toshiba, to ship Microsoft’s mobile operating system on various devices.

Christensen commented that since he announced his departure from Microsoft he has been invited to join the board of directors for more than a dozen companies. His decision to team with Action Engine was based on what he believes is a ‘winning combination’ of innovative technology, increasing consumer adoption across the smart phones market, and a growing market demand for turnkey software solutions that provide carriers with a next-generation alternative to popular services like Vodafone live!, iMode and others.
