Amelia Newsom-DavisDirector Payment, Messaging and Identity at Orange France
I started my career working in front of the screen on TV before deciding I wanted to move behind it to build and deploy digital content, products and services in the telecoms industry.
At Orange I run the division in charge of digital payment, digital identity and business messaging. I have delivered double figure growth and three major project launches - Mobile ID, RCS Business Messaging and Direct Carrier Billing - since I joined the team in 2019. I drive business development with a wide range of B2B partners spanning the financial services, communication and digital media industries.
I have wide experience in digital media and strategic partnership management acquired in my previous role at Orange Content. I launched the first streaming TV service on mobile and then built the IPTV and SVOD business to over 300 channels, negotiating partnerships with all the major players in the media industry.
I love the challenge of working in the fast-moving and innovative environment of digital services in a role that allows me to combine operations with the strategy skills I acquired as a management consultant.
