A French company known for its content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming tools for content providers and pay-TV operators has brought on two sales directors to address increased sales and business growth plans in North America.
This sees the arrival of Howard Barouxis and Mario Rainville will manage sales and business development activities for the U.S. and Canada. This encompasses Broadpeak’s accounts with content providers, satellite service providers, telcos, MVPDs, and virtual MVPDs.
Concurrently, Broadpeak has increased the number of team members at its operations center in Denver.
“Technology innovations such as multicast ABR and Cloud PVR are making a significant impact on content delivery in North America,” said Broadpeak CEO Jacques Le Mancq. “As a leading provider of CDN solutions and the industry’s first-ever multicast ABR solution, Broadpeak experiences a high demand from its customers who want to deliver superior video quality on all screens. Howard and Mario both have extensive track records for driving business growth and strong relationships with major pay-TV operators and service providers across North America. They will be critical in helping us deploy next-generation video solutions for our North American customers.”
Prior to joining Broadpeak, Barouxis was a major accounts executive at Harmonic, where he was responsible for managing all sales activities for major U.S. media operators. Rainville was previously director of technical solutions and subject matter expert on media delivery offerings at Ericsson.
