Two new appointments at Globecast

Media solutions provider Globecast has announced two UK-based appointments in its distribution and contribution teams.

Jack Braybrook has joined the content and distribution team as account manager (AM), Distribution, while James Whittaker has joined the contribution team as business development manager (BDM) OU Sports and Events.

“Jack and James have the proper skillsets to help our customers make full use of both traditional opportunities as well as the shift toward IP, virtualization and cloud services. Their experience will build upon our successful path of innovating and investing in new technologies to create customer-focused services,” said Juliet Walker, Chief Marketing Officer, Globecast.

Braybrook’s primary responsibilities will lie in expanding the company’s customer base and identifying new business opportunities. He previously held the position of sales manager at Arqiva.

Whittaker will work with the contribution team to drive new opportunities and continue to expand Globecast’s market position. Whittaker recently held the post of OU sales manager at Arqiva, where he worked on business development in the OU satellite marketplace and delivered content for the site, ground or venue via satellite, fibre or IP.

Braybrook said: “I’m fortunate to join a company like Globecast that’s a go-to provider for playout and distribution, most especially with our cloud based playout solutions. To help our customers launch their channels and get their content on air quickly and easily is my number one goal.”

Whittaker added: “Working with Globecast across their sports and live events business is a fantastic opportunity, especially with the recent launch of Digital Media Hub, which really pushes the boundaries in publishing content across multiple platforms. I’m looking forward to liaising with our clients to make their content delivery simple and straightforward.”
