Kaltura hires Sanches as GM of media and telecom

Video tech provider Kaltura has announced the hire of Nuno Sanches as its general manager of media and telecom.

Sanches joins Kaltura with over 15 years of experience working in the industry and most recently was at Vodafone. There, he created the company’s TV product and development business, and led the global strategy and product development of Vodafone TV.

He also held several strategy, marketing, content and product development roles in ZON Multimédia (now NOS Comunicações), and Portugal Telecom (now Altice Portugal), Portugal’s largest pay-TV and telecom operators.

Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura co-founder, chairman and CEO said: “I am extremely excited to welcome Nuno to Kaltura’s executive team. Nuno brings with him the first-hand perspective of top-tier telecoms and pay TV providers, and a deep understanding of the needs of their end-users. Through our work with Vodafone on their inspiring TV initiative we developed a close and fruitful partnership with Nuno. I have always been impressed by Nuno’s far-reaching vision, sharp-minded execution, relentless drive to success, and passionate leadership style. All of us at Kaltura are thrilled to have Nuno lead our continued exciting journey towards powering the future of TV.”

Sanches said: “Five years ago the decision to develop and deploy a cloud-based video streaming service that could scale to millions and merge the best of operator-grade pay TV and OTT was not obvious and its success surprised and shaped the pay TV industry. Today, as the streaming wars rage on, every operator and media company needs to make the same bold move.

“Personally, by joining the strongest independent technology provider in this space, I now have the opportunity to make a massive impact on the market by helping further scale and bring to life the next generation of cloud TV services.”
