Phoneware puts former Yahoo! exec on board

Tony Surtees, an Australian who became an executive vice president of Yahoo! and also served as general manager of Yahoo!'s Global e-Commerce Group, has joined the board of ASX-listed company Phoneware, which develops communications management and billing solutions. "Tony's experience in e-commerce is expected to benefit Phoneware's business operations, particularly the Phoneware Online e-commerce activities," a spokesman claimed.

At Yahoo! Surtees oversaw e-commerce strategies, including the expansion of the company's suite of online commerce services, the spokesman explained. "Under his direction Yahoo! Launched PayDirect, an online person-to-person payment platform and the first online payment service to be fully integrated into Yahoo!'s global network of sites," he said.

Before joining Yahoo!, Surtees was in Australia operating a corporate fax network and designing an e-commerce application for online bill presentment.

Phoneware has also recently appointed Keith Mitchelhill as managing director and Raju Parrab as non-executive director.
