Brian Friedman is the GVP – Strategic Global Sales at SoftClouds.
Brian got involved in mobile technology during the very early days as the owner of one of the first four cellular retail companies in the US. There was no playbook on how to run this business, owing to the business’s freshness and never tested services.
He along with his team were writing rules daily. Brain owned the company for 9 years and saw an opportunity to move cellular retailing to eCommerce. This was long before everything was available for purchase online and his team built a platform to enable the purchase of cellular phones and services online.
All the major operators thought they were doing something crazy. They ended up with all of them as their customers and one of them acquired the platform. This not only provided him with an experience that is far to match up and much less underestimate it. He’s been in, with, and around in technology ever since, and moved to SoftClouds 5 years back, contributing to its staggering growth.
Brian has been one of the most precious and experienced resources of SoftClouds. His achievements far outweigh any other team in the industry and give SoftClouds a huge edge over any other company in the segment.
Brian has founded three unique companies in the cellular space:
- One of the first four cellular retailers in the US.
- One of the first eCommerce companies selling mobile phones and service plans.
- One of the first independent Android app store platforms that were tied directly to mobile operators for direct carrier billing.
Brian’s views on responsibilities of an entrepreneur
In Brian’s opinion, an entrepreneur is a true jack-of-all-trades who is fully responsible for the entire business. To be a successful entrepreneur and a leader, you constantly need to lead and mentor.
“You must bring the right people into positions and give them the room to grow into themselves and their position. That takes knowing when to direct and when to get out of your teams’ way”, Brian adds.
Brian finds ‘Getting to Yes’ to be one of the most interesting books and would recommend it to everyone. “All too often we look at all the things that can or will stand in the way of success. Looking at each situation with a different view helps us to see how we achieve our desired results while still helping the other party succeed as well”, Brian adds about the book.

Team and Work-culture at SoftClouds
SoftClouds is an organization that places a high value on its employees and considers them to be their most precious assets. They make it a point to involve their employees in every element of the business, to give them a sense of ownership.
They have an open-door policy that encourages everyone to express their thoughts and ideas, and some of their best ideas have come from within. Gratitude jars, workplace celebrations, and team-building exercises are among the activities they have in place to recognize and reward their accomplishments.
All these factors push the team to strive harder and push for excellence in everything they do. Their coordination and sense of responsibility towards the company and its clients make them truly unique and unmatched in the industry.
Brian’s take on the competition in the market.
Without competition, we wouldn’t continuously strive to be better and find our place in the industry.
Competition is natural and motivating. We don’t seek to replicate what our competitors are doing; we seek to differentiate ourselves. This allows us to find our niche in our industry and helps us carve out the place where we can be successful and make a difference for our customers.
