Sushant has joined Qvest Media from Swedish Media technology group Accedo. As Head of Consulting Services at Accedo Asia, Sushant was responsible for defining and developing the consulting business in the APAC region. Previously as Sales Director, Sushant headed Accedo’s revenue growth across Asia, driving go-to-market and building strategic partnerships. In his new role at Qvest Media Singapore, Sushant will manage Qvest Media’s overall local operations, business development and commercial objectives in the APAC region and continue to develop and execute Qvest Media’s growth strategy for that region. He has long-standing experience in online video/OTT, cloud services and digital businesses, gathered during stints at Accedo, Huawei Technologies and Exicon.

Konstantin will be filling the newly created position of Director of Consulting in the Consulting division. The core of his expanded remit involves the further development of Qvest Media’s consulting model, the optimisation of standards and processes and their systematic alignment with the challenges of digital transformation in the media world. Qvest Media has since many years been involved in major media transformation projects across Europe, the middle East and Asia and has been responsible to evaluate, define and support the implementation of new technology solutions in the fields of IP for broadcast, artificial intelligence, cyber security and cloud migration and has been project advisor and lead consultant for large scale media projects.

During his 20-plus years of working on classical concerts and musicals, Müller says he has been searching for the sound they achieved at the Tonhalle Orchestra’s anniversary concert. So much so that he can hardly imagine going back to a traditional L/R system.
