New challenges for 2015. Let’s go for it!

Posted on 1/12/2015 by Zaryn Dentzel, Founder and Chairman of Tuenti and Strategic Advisor for Telefónica Digital Transformation

Building Tuenti into the company that it is today has been the biggest accomplishment in my life, working side by side with one of the best teams in the world. The most important thing is to always remember who we are as a company and our dedication to building quality communication products. We have screwed up at times but we have also done what seemed like the undoable, leading the way in innovation and pioneering hitherto unprecedented offerings in the sector of mobile communications.

From this day forward, 9 years after having founded Tuenti, and as 2015 begins, I will play a more strategic role in the company as Chairman, as I also take on new responsibilities in the Telefónica group as the Strategic Advisor for Digital Transformation, helping Telefónica to shape the groups broader communications strategy. My good friend and the current COO, Sebas Muriel, will take on a more prominent role as the CEO of Tuenti, and I will continue to work with him and with our exceptional team, playing a part in defining Tuenti’s strategy and supporting the development of future advances. Sebas is a fighter with great vision but also a born hard-worker with a lot of patience. Most importantly, he is someone that has always shared the values required to drive forward the products that helped to put Tuenti on the map several years ago.

With over 230,000 customers in Spain, and many more in our new markets in Mexico, Argentina and Peru, Tuenti is more committed than ever to building the future app-powered cloudphone experience that will reinvent the telecommunications market as we know it and offer our clients exciting new technology that will improve their experience while providing them with added value. As a truly global company with innovation at its core, Tuenti is stronger than ever and I believe in Sebas’ ability to help us harness our potential in order that Tuenti can drive the innovation and new products to breathe new life into Telefónica’s global communications strategy.

We are at the beginning of a transformative and disruptive period in the field of communications and I believe that Tuenti will truly set the bar for our sector. The future is right here in front of us. All we have to do is build it.
