Marcus Anthony, Founder
A telecommunications expert, Marc co-founded My Mobile Witness® with Scott Bullens. Originally developed in 2007 as an internal security device for private real estate firms, Marc and Scott felt there was a unique opportunity to leverage cell phone technology as a personal safety tool.

Among Marc's duties are to establish policies and objectives of the company, oversee employee and customer service training, provide guidance so all programming, engineering and software/network development remains congruent with the mission and vision of the organization.
Among his more high profile projects while working at Verizon Wireless, Marc launched a 12-month data trial in partnership with G.T.E., IBM and Roadway Package Systems (now Fed-Ex Ground). Successful completion of a nationwide beta trial led to the first cellular packet data network.
Marc worked with Carnegie Mellon University and IBM on the first Personal Communication System (PCS) trial in the nation, with Carnegie Mellon University as the research entity studying consumer behavior and IBM as the first enterprise customer to commercially test the system. While at Bell Atlantic Marc directed the sale and design of 911 systems and worked with fortune 100 companies offering guidance on both wireless and landline data applications.
Marc holds a B.S. in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.
