Simplestream announces two senior appointments

Simplestream has confirmed two key appointments to support the growing demand for its unified, end-to-end live streaming and live-to-VOD video services in the UK and beyond.

The company, perhaps best known by consumers as the organisation behind TVPlayer has added Sam Orton-Jay as Sales & Marketing Director (formerly Sonic Solutions, DivX and NeuLion) and Mike Alexander as Account Director (formerly Pace, Strategy & Technology, VuTV, Synapse).

Dan Finch, Commercial Director at Simplestream commented:
“We have grown organically over the last five years and as a cheeky disrupter that now spans multiple OTT sectors, the time is right to accelerate the growth of Simplestream in both the UK and international markets. As we are on the leading edge of video streaming technology, investing in the right talent is a necessary ingredient to further help our customers commercialise their content effectively. We welcome Sam and Mike into the Simplestream fold”
