CCS Insight attracts another top mobile analyst

Leading mobile analyst Paolo Pescatore starts today at CCS Insight as director - operator strategy, content and applications.

Paolo joins the CCS Insight team from IDC where he was research manager for the EMEA consumer wireless and mobile communications service.

Following the recruitment of Geoff Blaber earlier in the year (who has just been promoted from senior analyst to director of devices), it's another great hire for directors Mick Walker, Shaun Collins and Ben Wood.

In the past 18 months, CCS Insight has transformed itself and is now rapidly creating a brand that challenges the bigger, better-known players in the analyst space.

We've been talking to Ben recently about the reasons behind CCS Insight's success and his views on the analyst market. Sometime later this week, I'll post again on this.
