Synamedia expands leadership team

Independent video software provider Synamedia has added to its leadership team with three new hires.

Sabine M. Bravo joins as VP of business development, Joseph A. Sheehan as head of US media, telco and web, and Kostas Stavrianos as head of US cable.

Bravo will manage key partners and sales operations internationally for the Video Processing portfolio, while Sheehan and Stavrianos will focus their efforts on Synamedia’s customer base in the United States.

Bravo joins from Dolby Laboratories where she led the professional product and licensing strategy and engaged with key broadcasters and professional manufacturers to identify key product developments for the media industry. Sheehan was previously at Nevion where he was VP strategic sales and business development and led the IP conversion and orchestration of media networks. Stavrianos joins Synamedia from Imagine Communications, where he oversaw executive sales across the US and Canadian MVPDs, telco and broadcast industries.

Bravo said:”I am excited to work with established industry peers at Synamedia and to become a key player in the company’s Video Processing business development team.”

Sheehan added: “I look forward to bringing my experience in the media and telecommunications industry and a strong track record of results to Synamedia.”

Stavrianos concluded: “Synamedia’s proposition for delivering innovative solutions and services is unlike any other, and I am eager to contribute my expertise in customer retention and management to the US Cable team.”

Speaking on the appointments, Dave Longaker, Synamedia’s SVP and general manager in the Americas, said: “We are thrilled to have onboarded best-in-class industry professionals to the Americas and global teams. In less than a year since its launch, Synamedia has already helped service providers around the world deliver, protect and monetize video content, and we look forward to working with Sheehan, Stavrianos and Bravo to further ensure that Synamedia’s customers have access to the most advanced technology for fast and efficient video content delivery. 

“Their technical prowess and business acumen are second to none, and their deep understanding of the media, cable and telco landscapes will help us to continue to deliver on our mission to help customers transform their businesses in a new world of infinite entertainment.”
