The Bella Petite Hour (with host Ann Lauren) will feature visionary internet entrepreneur and innovator Sheri Wells. Sheri is currently guiding a burgeoning internet empire through her company, SMS Media Group. She might be petite, but Sheri’s stature in the business world is Amazonian!
Already a proficient programmer and respected producer, Sheri’s internet ventures began in the mid-90’s, when she launched NetCity.com, the first electronic metropolis on the internet. Today Sheri Wells has been crowned “the Mother of the Code,” and she is amassing a global media empire reaching around the globe from Shanghai, China to Nairobi, Kenya through her company SMS Media Group (www.smsmediagroup.com).
SHERI WELLS, CEO SMS MEDIA GROUP “LEADING MOBILE MESSAGING”
SMS Media Group is a leading mobile media company specializing in permission-based mobile SMS messaging services. The messaging platform Wells built enables advertisers to broadcast targeted offers to opt-in cell phone subscribers. If an advertiser wants to send a promotion to 100,000 people at lunch-time in New York City, Sheri is the one to call! Under her direction, SMS Media Group has developed the most powerful text messaging applications in the industry.”We now have an arsenal of applications,” says Wells. Sheri is recognized as one of the leading SMS messaging experts in the world, and has launched text messaging campaigns and applications in over 200 countries for media brands and government agencies, including Reuters, Nielsen, and BBG.gov.
TOP 20 PRIVATE TECH COMPANY
Recently, SMS Media Group was honored as one of the “top twenty private technology companies” at the 5th Annual Houlihan Lokey Technology Conference. In an effort to educate and inform businesses and industry professionals about the value of text messaging, Sheri is now launching SMS Magazine, a semi-annual digital publication. “Our industry needs a credible publication that informs about the ever changing trends, industry news, and carrier requirements,” says Wells.
WELLS ON BUSINESS AND LIFESTYLE
Throughout her career, Sheri Wells has defied the traditional expectations of a woman in a male dominated industry. While away from her computer, you might catch Sheri strutting through her Aliso Viejo, California office in fashionable four-inch heels, and leading her business with impeccable class, style, and matching credibility. Sheri is a technology mastermind setting trends with each stroke of her keypad and creating revolutionary technology, but Sheri has also established a successful home life as a wife and mother of three beautiful daughters! With such a busy schedule and so much more on the horizon in her life personally and professionally, the question Bella Petite fans will all be wondering is, when does Sheri ever find time to sleep?!
