Pixel Power today announced the strengthening of its international sales team with the appointment of Mark Barkey to the role of Regional Sales Manager. He will be based in the Dubai office in Media City and will be responsible for the Middle East and North Africa regions.
“The Middle East has always been a key part of our business strategy and we are proud of our strong, customer relationships built over the years,” said James Gilbert, CEO, Pixel Power. “We are delighted that Mark has chosen to bring his wealth of experience to Pixel Power and look forward to building on, as well as increasing, those trusted relationships with clients throughout the region.”
Pixel Power opened its Dubai office ten years ago, based on the region growing importance as a strategic growth area for the company. With the introduction of new software-defined platforms for playout, automation, graphics and branding, Pixel Power continues to align its technology with the needs of today’s broadcasters. Recently acquired by Rohde & Schwarz, the company plans to further expand its footprint in broadcast playout and bring new virtualizable IP based software products for linear TV, mobile, online and OTT/VOD to the market.
A highly experienced broadcast professional, Mark Barkey has worked across the Middle East for over 25 years. Following military service, he began his broadcast career with Echostar International before moving to Philips Broadcast in Dubai and then Axon Digital Design. Barkey is fluent in several languages and has a degree in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications.
“With nearly three decades living in Dubai, the Middle East region is close to my heart,” said Mark Barkey, Regional Sales Manager, Pixel Power. “I’m excited to introduce the new playout and automation platforms to customers looking for innovative ways to develop their broadcasting business and earn new revenue streams.”
