Net Insight has strengthened its US sales team with five new appointments since April this year.
Dan Donnelly has been appointed head of sales for the Americas with a focus on combining direct and channel partner sales. Donnelly has more than 25 years of experience in broadcasting with leading technology companies. He joined Net Insight at the beginning of April.
Joining Donnelly’s team, Net Insight has also appointed the following people:
• Doug Jost has joined Net Insight as director of sales for the US Central Region. Jost is a cable industry veteran with 25 years of experience working with the entire spectrum of multichannel video distributors, including companies such as Showtime and MAV TV.
• George Woodford has been appointed Net Insight’s Northeast regional sales director based in Washington, D.C. Woodford has more than 20 years of experience working in telecommunications sales, with 10 years in video and IP transport and production sales. Woodford has joined Net Insight from Nevion.
• Quent Hanna has taken up the position of Western region sales director at Net Insight after more than 20years at Tektronix. Hanna brings with him vast industry experience working in broadcast and production systems sales, with 15 years in video and IP measurement technology sales in Silicon Valley. Hanna will be based in Northern California.
• Adam Zee has been named inside sales for North America. Zee comes with experience from Akamai, targeting large media and high-tech companies.
In addition, Net Insight’s Brad Wensley and Todd Bayne have moved over to Geartech Technologies, Net Insight’s largest reseller in North America, where they are assigned to handle new accounts for Net Insight products and services.
“The Americas is a key market for Net Insight and while we have seen some great success over the past years, we are never satisfied,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “With this strong team on board I feel confident that we can achieve the high goals we have set for the company. With a solution portfolio that now includes the ScheduALL software suite, Internet contribution through the Nimbra VA series, Nimbra Media Gateway and Nimbra MSR, and live OTT through Sye, there is a real need to grow the sales team to ensure we are presenting solutions and informing customers and prospects about the benefits derived from implementing them.”
