NEW YORK — MultiDyne Video & Fiber Optic Solutions has moved forward with the promotions of two key executives, who each report to CEO Frank Jachetta.
This sees expanded responsibilities given to the pair, focused on the company’s daily business operations and strategic company direction moving forward.
Earning the boost at MultiDyne are Jesse Foster, as Vice President of Product Development, and Matt Watkins, as vP of Sales.
Foster joined MultiDyne in 2018 from Cobalt Digital as Director, Product Development and Western US Sales. He’ll retain his Western U.S. Sales territory, reporting to Matt Watkins for all sales activities and to Frank Jachetta on product development initiatives.
Watkins came to MultiDyne from the consumer electronics world in 2008 as an Inside Sales Manager, where he learned the professional broadcast and production business from the ground up. Matt’s trajectory has now taken him from an entry-level position to a VP post, following 12 years as Sales and Systems Design Manager.
In his new role, Matt will oversee all global sales and business development initiatives, with regional sales teams and channel partners reporting to him. That includes Sebastian Mucha, Director of Business Development, EMEA Region; and Michael Jordan, who came to MultiDyne through its Census Digital acquisition and has been promoted to Director of Business Development, CALA and APAC.
Matt will also continue to head Eastern US Sales, a job he assumed in 2018, serving as Jesse’s sales counterpart east of the Mississippi River; and take on increasing responsibilities in marketing communications.
“MultiDyne has always valued long-term employee retention and encouraged promotion from within,” said Jachetta. “Matt has spent his entire professional career here, and his talents have touched nearly every department over 14 remarkable years. Jesse came to us several years ago with strong industry pedigree and made an immediate impact on how we market and position our fiber solutions, while bringing MultiDyne into new product areas and business verticals. These are well-deserved promotions that set the stage for our next generation of business growth.”
