Telestream Unveils New Business Structure and Expanded Executive Leadership Team
The company is now organized in two business units, supported by shared corporate functions in finance, operations, marketing and HR. The company’s Media Workflow and Production business unit, under the leadership of its newly appointed President, Anna Greco, will focus on technologies that enable customers to manage the scale and complexity resulting from explosive growth in live and file-based content production and workflows. The business unit includes solutions for live and on-demand encoding and transcoding, live streaming production, workflow automation and orchestration. Greco is well-known to Telestream’s global customer base and has a deep knowledge of Telestream’s core technologies and business dynamics, having previously served as the company’s Vice President of Client Services.
The Video Quality Monitoring and Analytics business unit will focus on solutions which ensure that content is delivered at the highest quality, providing video data acquisition and quality assurance across live, linear, and on-demand networks. Calvin Harrison, who was formerly IneoQuest Technologies’ President and CEO prior to its acquisition by Telestream in March 2017, serves as President of the Video Quality Monitoring and Analytics business unit.
“As we get ready to celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are excited to put in place a new structure that will support our ambitious vision and growth plans for the future. With three significant acquisitions in two years and yet another year of strong organic business growth, Telestream is well poised to help advance the video industry at a time of major change. This expanded corporate structure gives us the foundation and agility we need to respond aggressively to opportunities in front of us, so we can help our customers deliver the highest possible video quality to their viewers, on any device,” said Puopolo.
