OTT platform operator Magine Pro has promoted managing director Matthew Wilkinson to CEO, replacing Ambuj Goyal, and has hired ex-Neulion executive Luke Boyle as chief commercial officer.
Wilkinson, who is taking over from Goyal as CEO, has a background in Ericsson where he held different management positions in Europe and Australia. Over the past year he has led Magine through the process of pivoting its business model, leaving the consumer market in Germany and Scandinavia to fully focus on serving content and telco partners on the Magine Pro OTT platform.
Boyle brings experience from the OTT and sports media sectors and will be responsible for all commercial activities for Magine Pro’s OTT solutions and managed services. Prior to joining Magine, he led successful business development activities across EMEA and APAC at Neulion, now Endeavor Streaming, and has held senior positions in various sports, media and tech companies.
“I couldn’t be more delighted to join at this exciting stage in Magine’s development. With the team, technology and operational capabilities at our disposal I am confident that we will achieve great success with our partners, both current and future,” said Boyle.
Wilkinson said: “I am energised taking on this role, as we fully transition to a B2B company. We are leveraging the experience of running scale consumer businesses, and now taking our OTT platform solutions to market.“
