BEIJING, Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Graphite Software, the leader in Android multi-persona solutions, today announced that James Duan has been named Chief Marketing Officer for Graphite Software. He will report to CEO Alec Main.

An experienced digital marketing and advertising leader, James has excelled at delivering impressive brand and campaign awareness results for many global brands. He joins Graphite Software from ADirects Technologies, a digital advertising display company that he co-founded and held the role of CMO. James spent many years at Ogilvy & Mather in various roles from Managing Partner, General Manager and Group Vice President that had him responsible for many global brands including Unilever, PingAn, Fuji Xerox, Michelin and SAP. His efforts resulted in tremendous revenue growth and awards for his marketing ideas and approaches. James earned a PhD in Consumer Behavior from the University of South Australia and his Masters in Marketing from the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

"It is an exciting time for Graphite Software when our opportunity attracts the attention of someone of James' caliber," said Alec Main, Graphite CEO. "James brings extraordinary marketing expertise, brand advertising and mobile industry knowledge to lead Graphite to the next level. With deployment to over 100 million devices already, James is uniquely skilled to drive global growth and revenue in both the consumer and enterprise markets. We are delighted to welcome his inspiration and leadership."

"I found Graphite Software's company mission, technology platform and market traction extremely compelling. Compared to Cyanogen, who tried to replace the operating system, Graphite has a compelling virtual phone solution that works alongside OEMs – the proof is in the numbers. As the needs of Android users, OEMs, enterprises and brand advertisers evolve, the pace of mobile technology continues to hasten. I believe Graphite Software is well positioned to make a measureable impact on mobile security and user experience," says James Duan.

About Graphite Software's Secure Spaces

Secure Spaces is an Android virtualization platform that enables multiple virtual devices or "Spaces" to co-exist on a single device - such as a Personal Space, a Kids Space, a Work Space and a Secure Banking Space. This addresses not only fundamental Android security and privacy issues but it also enables Spaces to provide different user experiences in terms of apps, wallpapers, launchers and unique Space security settings, which leads to new forms of app discovery and distribution. Like the material graphite, Secure Spaces is strong and lightweight – there is no impact in device performance compared to previous virtualization technologies. For more information, visit:
