Leonard Cervantes is the Product Manager, Apps at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Len has lived in the mobile space since the early days of short codes, ringtones and WAP sites on feature phones. After managing the mobile launch for MTV Canada (the first truly multi-platform broadcast channel in the country), Len took his talents to the CBC to manage a portfolio of apps on all platforms from iOS to BlackBerry and everything in between, on devices that fit in your pocket to consoles that sit on your shelf. 2014 highlights included high-profile app product launches for CBC Sochi 2014 (iOS/Android/Windows), CBC FIFA 2014 (iOS/Android) and relaunches of CBC News and CBC Radio aligned with Apple's iOS 8 and iPhone 6 launches. 2014 year was capped off with the relaunching CBC News and CBC Radio for Android 5.0 Lollipop using Material Design.
