TV technology company SeaChange International has named Raghu Rau as its permanent CEO.
Rau was appointed interim CEO in November last year, replacing Bill Styslinger.
“Raghu’s leadership and excellent grasp of our business was apparent from the moment he assumed responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the company. In a matter of just a few months, he has dramatically improved SeaChange’s overall operations and its ability to serve global markets, to the immediate benefit of our customers as well as our shareholders and employees,” said Thomas Olson, chairman, SeaChange.
Rau joined the SeaChange Board of Directors in July 2010. He previously held a number of senior leadership positions at Motorola and served on the board of Microtune, which was then acquired by Zoran Corporation. He currently serves on the board of directors of Aviat Networks, a provider of wireless transmission systems.
This story has been corrected: the initial version incorrectly stated that Raghu Rau replaced Yvette Kanouff as CEO.
