Visual Unity Expands its Management Team with Two Key Appointments
As Vice President of Sales, Tony Hasek will drive Visual Unity’s international business development and take charge of internal sales management. He brings 20 years experience in both Systems Integration and Mobile technology to the role, having previously founded system integrator Kinetik and Anyware, a developer of custom and stand-alone applications for Apple's iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Google's Android OS, Blackberry and Windows Mobile.
Client Services Manager Asheem Parikh, who joins Visual Unity from KIT Digital, will assist customers with effective project deliveries. His extensive experience in programme management and professional services will ensure best practice and a smooth transition for customers who are expanding or adapting to the multiscreen environment.
Commenting on the new appointments, Visual Unity’s CEO Jakub Kabourek says: “Tony and Asheem are valuable additions to our team and their experience extends our unique expertise in linear and multiscreen solutions. They join at an exciting time for Visual Unity, following the successful delivery of a High Definition production OB vehicle to Czech TV and news that the national broadcaster’s online service iVysilani, driven by Visual Unity’s vuMedia™ integrated multiscreen content and delivery platform, has won two industry awards for innovation to power the second screen.”
Visual Unity is now consolidating its position as a multiscreen specialist by launching new and enhanced mobile features for its vuMedia™ platform and extending its Content Delivery Network outside Europe with new pops in the Middle East.
