Tech provider MediaKind has announced the appointment of Allen Broome as its new CEO.
Broome is elevated from the position of chief technology officer, a role he took up in October 2019. Since then, the exec has helped advance the company’s teams in the industrialisation of OTT streaming while also reshaping its portfolio.
Prior to joining MediaKind, Broome’s 20-plus year career also had him serve at Comcast Cable as VP cloud engineering.
The new CEO said: “I am excited to lead the amazing MediaKind team into this next chapter and to continue to drive our innovation leadership in the media industry. Our goal is to give our customers the freedom to stream live without limits. We’ve tackled the many complex barriers of live video delivery to unlock unprecedented efficiency and ensure quality and low latency at any scale – enabling our customers and partners to focus on their own next-level creativity in content and experience.”
Angel Ruiz, chairman of the Board, MediaKind, said: “The Board would like to thank Matt McConnell for his service and leadership and wish him well for the future. With the elevation of Allen Broome to CEO, we have a true Engineering visionary at the heart of our company. Allen is well equipped to lead and guide our future strategy roadmap and technology innovation and ensure that we continue to provide the best level of support and collaboration with our customers and partners worldwide.”
