Larry Harris, a veteran marketing executive and entrepreneur, will be named President of VGTel, Inc. At 48 years of age, Mr. Harris' experience spans a broad range of capacities in both the advertising industry and in defining new marketing paradigms for the convergence of media with digital technology. He founded one of the first interactive agencies within a major ad agency at FCB, led marketing integration at Draft and was most recently CEO of Ansible Mobile, the innovative mobile marketing joint venture between marketing services holding company, Interpublic Group and Velti, a leading provider of mobile marketing solutions.
