BroadStream invests in APAC growth
APAC: Due to continued growth it has experienced in Asia Pacific countries, BroadStream Solutions has invested in additional resources to add focus on the APAC region. This has included the hiring of Kevin Dowd as the new regional director, as well as the creation of a new sales engineering role.
Mr Dowd will be based in Hong Kong, managing general business activities and nurturing further growth. He brings aboard more than 20 years of experience within the broadcast sector in the Chinese and APAC markets having worked for companies such as Kasenna, RGB Networks, Viewcast Corporation and Haivision. In his most recent role, Mr Dowd served as president of Asia at Media Excel.
‘We are delighted about Kevin joining us,’ enthused David Bowes, COO at BroadStream. ‘He brings a totally new dimension to the team and his resume speaks for itself. Kevin is a key figure in the Asian broadcast market and has already started to make significant contributions and additions to our pipeline in this important market.’
Meanwhile, the newly created sales engineer role will see the successful candidate take responsibility for supporting BroadStream’s new and existing customers in the region.
‘By strengthening our Asia Pacific base in both sales and engineering, we are increasing our commitment to the region and building a solid foundation for the future,’ BroadStream president and CEO Herbert Brenninkmeijer declared. ‘Our investments in people will continue and has already proven successful. BroadStream has achieved 170 per cent growth in revenue year on year over the last 12 months and we will see revenue double again in 2017.’
