MobilityWare promotes former COO Jeff Erle to CEO

Irvine, CA-based mobile developer MobilityWare has announced that its COO Jeff Erle will be taking the step up to the role of CEO.

The Orange County firm, whose flagship game Solitaire launched alongside the App Store's 2008 opening, can boast in excess of 250 million downloads across its mobile portfolio.

Moving with the times

Now looking towards wearable technologies and additional acquisitions for its long-term strategy, Erle takes the helm while founder and former CEO Dave Yonamine remains in the picture as Chairman of the Board.

Not only has Erle proven his chops with executive roles at companies such as Western Digital and ADP, but he is also a member of the US's largest angel investing group Tech Coast Angels.
