Head of Market Intelligence, FT Orange Group
About The Mobile World
The Mobile World is an information services company focused on the global telecommunications industry. Our flagship service, The Mobile World Database, is firmly established as the world's most accurate, detailed and accountable source of telecom market intelligence. The information we provide is relied upon by many of the world's top companies and our team of expert analysts is widely respected across the mobile world.

The company was founded in 2003 by financial analyst John Tysoe and investment banker Stephen Davidson. As professionals of long standing within the telecoms sector, they perceived a real need for "investment grade" data in the industry - high quality verified information on which real decisions could be made. The Mobile World exists to meet this need, and not just for financial institutions, but also for operators, equipment vendors and consulting and professional services firms.
Our Team
We believe that depth of understanding, attention to detail and methodological rigour are paramount in any information service. For this reason we do not employ researchers or data-entry personnel, and we do not outsource. Every part of our research process is carried out and managed by a highly-focused team of expert analysts - from the basic collection of data to the calculation of valuable synthetic metrics and key financial ratios. The very same analysts are also responsible for our support function, which is unlimited for all users of our services.

Our approach means that we provide a set of data on the telecommunications industry which is more accurate, more detailed, more consistent and more reliable than any other source currently available.
Our Founders
John Tysoe was a financial analyst on the telecoms sector for more than 25 years in the City of London before founding The Mobile World. During his City career, John was head of telecoms research at Kleinwort Benson, NatWest Securities, Lehman Bros, Societe Generale, and WestLB Panmure. John has been at the forefront of mobile telecoms research since the very inception of the industry.

Stephen Davidson brings top level investment banking and industry experience to the Mobile World as Associate Principal Consultant. Stephen is best known as the former Chief Executive and Finance Director of Telewest Communications plc. After Telewest Stephen went on to a career as a senior investment banker in the TMT sector in the City of London.

What sets us apart is our understanding of the intimate workings of the mobile sector, the various ways it reports information, what that information means, and what it tells us about the mobile world. Our deep knowledge and experience, which runs back to the very inception of the wireless industry in the 1980s, is the keystone of the service we provide.
