(Reuters) – Snap Inc said on Monday it has hired its first head of telecom carrier partnerships, as the parent company of photo messaging app Snapchat seeks to bolster its growth outside the United States.
The Santa Monica, California-based company has seen steady expansion internationally after improving its app on Android phones, which are more widely used than Apple iOS outside the United States. It now aims to accelerate growth by partnering with phone carriers in countries like Indonesia and India, where Snapchat recently hit a milestone of 100 million monthly users.
Anne Laurenson, who joins Snap from Google, will serve as managing director of global carrier partnerships. She will be based in Paris and becomes the first Snap executive to lead a global team from outside the United States, the company said.
