netnumber Global Data Services Welcomes New VP of Business and Market Development

Communications ecosystems are complicated. In an age when everyone has their devices on hand and depends on them for all kinds of messages and calls that come in from all over the world, it’s no surprise that routing and managing these communications gets tricky. Add in preventing fraud, keeping costs low and all the other considerations that enterprises, communications service providers and fraud prevention service providers need to worry about in this mobile landscape, and it all seems impossibly complex. However, it doesn’t have to be — not when the right phone number intelligence data is being used. 

netnumber Global Data Services, the world-leading provider of accurate, reliable and secure phone number intelligence data, has more than 20 years of experience in the field. The company’s broad array of solutions solve complex ecosystem challenges and reduce both costs and operational complexity for customers with detailed network and services attributes for global telephone numbers (you can learn more about that here.)

Lafrentz is an experienced leader in the technology and telecommunications space. Prior to joining netnumber Global Data Services, he drove innovation strategy and new product development for nine years at a global application-to-person messaging operator and cloud communications provider. There, he served as VP of Products and was instrumental in transforming a wholesale SMS aggregator into an enterprise-focused Service Provider, as well as creating a new product suite around the WhatsApp Business Solution by Meta.

Industry-leading phone number intelligence data solutions like those offered by netnumber Global Data Services have the ability to completely transform the communications landscape, and I’m eager to be a part of this company’s next phase of growth,” states Lafrentz.
