Evan Wray is co-founder and vice president of Swyft Media, a subsidiary of Monotype. Evan founded Swyft with his college roommate with the simple goal of creating custom emoji that they could send to their friends. They uncovered a bigger opportunity to license content from other schools, professional sports team and ultimately iconic global brands. In 2013, Evan co-developed the Swyft Media Platform and Partner Network, comprised of premium-licensed brands and messaging apps. Today, Swyft has more than 300 brand partnerships and 50+ mobile messaging partners (Kik, Viber, BBM, Kakao Talk, etc.) and is quickly becoming the go-to solution for brands who want to engage and monetize mobile users without interrupting the app experience. In 2015, Monotype acquired Swyft Media. Evan holds a BA in Economics from the University of Notre Dame.
