Ooyala has appointed the former CEO of software-as-a-service company Syncplicity, Jonathan Huberman, as its new chief executive.

Huberman took up the role effective April 18 and will focus on the future growth of Ooyala and strengthening its market leadership.

Former CEO, Ramesh Srinivasan, joined hospitality software and solutions firm Agilysys in January having exited Ooyala after less than a year.

“Mr. Huberman has a standout record of delivering profound growth for cloud-based technologies in complex industries and is a well-suited leader for Ooyala,” said board chairman, Stephen Elop.

“His dedication to customer satisfaction and keen attention to matching the right solutions to the right challenges in the industry will help drive Ooyala’s next phase of growth.”

Prior to working at Syncplicity, Huberman was the CEO of public safety software provider Tiburon. Before that he was president of EMC’s consumer and small business division.
