Who is Omar Hamoui?
Omar is an entrepreneur with deep roots in the mobile industry.
After earning a degree in Computer Science at UCLA, Omar founded and ran
several companies in mobile software and services. At the time, he was
frustrated by the lack of available options when it came to promoting
and monetizing mobile products. Omar realized that mobile service and
content firms needed better ways to advertise and make money on the
mobile Web. While earning his MBA at the Wharton School, Omar began to
think more seriously about the untapped potential of mobile advertising,
and created AdMob to address this growing opportunity. Today, Omar has
taken a leave from Wharton to focus on AdMob, and is now running one of
the fastest growing and most innovative companies in the mobile world.
