CorFire is leveraging the proven technology and experience garnered from SK C&C's eight years of commercial mobile commerce deployment in Korea to bring the mobile lifestyle to North America and the rest of the world - today.
Celebrating a Year of Milestones
One year ago, SK C&C launched the m-Commerce Center of Excellence business in Atlanta with the mission of delivering advanced mobile commerce service to the U.S. and worldwide. Shortly thereafter, SK C&C USA was incorporated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Korean parent SK C&C Co., Ltd.
SK C&C USA recruited an elite group of executives with expertise in the North American payments, finance, and mobile industries as the company's management team to fulfill its mobile commerce mission. Last September, the company announced its strategic partnership with First Data to bring a trusted service management (TSM) and mobile wallet solution to North America.
The company started 2011 with the announcement that it was the only TSM provider in the U.S. to receive certification in MasterCard's Global Vendor Certification. In April, SK C&C USA announced it executed on its Q1 deliverable of the First Data TSM, which is the first commercially available TSM in North America. SK C&C USA maintains a strategic focus on expanding and leveraging its core resource - its industry-leading R&D and product development teams in the US.
CorFire Prepared to Build on Its Explosive First Year of Growth
Sang Yook, CEO of SK C&C USA explained, "Our new brand CorFire reflects who we are and how we have positioned ourselves at the heart of the mobile ecosystem. We have seen remarkable traction in our first year. In fact, we expect CorFire to be one of the fastest growing businesses in Atlanta in 2011 as we position ourselves for accelerated growth and new technology innovations in mobile commerce and other related industries."
Mr. Yook added, "We have seen firsthand how mobile commerce has created an entirely new lifestyle for the consumer. With the recent advancements in technology and the rapid adoption of smartphones, the time is ripe to bring the mobile lifestyle to North America and the rest of the globe."
