As the Head of Mxit Innovation, Gavin Marshall has the enormously important task of leading the team that develops new features, entertainment and technologies that keep the mobile social network’s community enthralled. Mxit has over 40 million registrations in 220 countries. He does this by researching trends in the global mobile and social networking industry and by keeping his eye on developing technologies that have the potential to be used on the MXit platform.
Gavin has made it his business to understand Mxit’s user base and the types of mobile social networking interaction that they will want and need in the future. This, coupled with his knowledge of developing trends in the global market, allows him and his team to create the type of platform that keeps the community coming back for more.
Gavin has been involved in technology and social networking research and development for over ten years. He has a fascination for anthropology and psychology and is particularly passionate about technology’s role in changing how people interact with each other, and how we understand ourselves.
