We’re excited to announce that Chris Drake has been appointed Vice President of Business and Corporate Development, at Telestream. Drake took his role in July and reports directly to our CEO, Dan Castles.
Drake brings to Telestream more than 20 years of sales, business development, product and management experience in the high tech, media services and broadcast technology industries. He joins the company from Comcast Technology Solutions where he was Vice President, Business Development. Prior to that, he held various senior business development, marketing and strategic relations roles at thePlatform and RealNetworks.
“Having spent more than 20 years in broadcast and media technology, I am more excited now than ever about the opportunities – and challenges – facing our industry. I am thrilled to have found a company that shares this optimism and is well positioned for continued growth and investment,” said Drake.
In this brand new role, Drake will be instrumental in shaping Telestream’s partner strategy. He is tasked with identifying, nurturing and growing our partnerships in both file-based operations and live streaming marketplaces.
“As consumers increasingly turn to streaming to access content across a wide range of devices, the video technology industry is evolving from a model where broadcast simply coexists with digital to a model where true convergence is king,” notes Drake
As many of the world’s most innovative technology companies embrace the power of video – we’ll be ready to help organizations navigate the proliferation of devices and formats that end-users opt to consume video.
Drake notes, “Few companies are as well positioned as Telestream to help address and lead this convergence. I am honored to join Dan and the tremendous Telestream team at a time of such focused and strategic expansion. I’m excited to help extend their already leading position in the industry.”
