Signiant, a provider of specialist software for the media and entertainment industry, has increased its workforce to meet growing demand in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
The company, which recently appointed Greg Hoskin as managing director with responsibility for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific markets, has hired four more senior staff to help drive its business in the region. The new hires are Jonathan Lunness, James Mansfield, Jamie Lakin, and Steve Gibson, all based in the UK.
Lunness, who is now regional sales director at Signiant, was previously a consultant to broadcasters on all aspects of file based workflow, automation, DAM, and server based operations.
James Mansfield joins Signiant as a regional sales manager and offers his knowledge of the post production industry gained from his recent experience at FilmLight and Quantel. Jamie Lakin joins the team as key account manager for EMEA drawing on his client development skills from previous roles in the IT industry.
Steve Gibson joins the solutions architecture team to add technical depth across Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
Signiant’s enterprise software is used by broadcasters and content providers across the region. The company also recently introduced Media Shuttle, a cloud delivery file transfer solution.
Greg Hoskin said: “Ease of use is driving adoption of Media Shuttle by media organisations large and small, and now they are also starting to fully appreciate the benefits of a hybrid SaaS solution,” said Hoskin. “Especially as customers explore storing media assets in the cloud, we’re beginning to experience strong demand for our object storage solutions. Signiant’s leadership position with respect to every dimension of cloud technology is becoming increasingly clear, and I’m confident that my expanding team is well suited to support this evolution in our customers’ needs.”
