Mark Acton
Founder and Managing Director at Mobinomics


Mark Acton founded Mobinomics in 2005 with the vision of creating a niche software business which could both co-create with and service a narrow slice of customers who require laser focus and depth of expertise to solve wicked problems. The specific niche that was occupied was Telco software systems, specifically the OSS (Operational Support Systems) service management layer.

Prior to starting Mobinomics, Mark fulfilled a number of engineering roles within telecommunication operators spanning domains of network engineering and service delivery operations.

Mark is also keenly interested in the future of telecommunications in context of business models enabled by a combination of Blockchain and Open Digital Architectures.

Mark holds a MSc in Engineering Management and a BSC (Electronic engineering) from University of Cape Town.
