Norway’s Sixty expands into the UK

Bergen-based interactive TV company, Sixty, has opened a UK office and made two senior hires, marking its first expansion outside of its native Norway.

The company has hired Adam Bowley as vice-president of broadcast technology and Gary Ellis as vice president of TV technology.

Bowley was previously head of broadcast data services at Perform Group, while Ellis was program director at Altibox. Both will be based in London.

“We are excited to welcome Adam and Gary into our team and to see them lead our business at our new office in London,” said Kjetil Horneland, CEO and founder of Sixty.

“The decision to open our new London office was simple; it’s a reflection of our rising ambition and desire to help broadcasters engage with their viewers and elevate the viewing experience through interactive technology.

“Our global presence has grown exponentially over the last few years and Adam and Gary’s experience will play a fundamental role in developing our position in the UK and beyond.”

Sixty aims to offer easy implementation of interactive TV and lets customers design and launch television experiences across any platform or device, including mobile phones and tablets.
