Nevion sales grow by more than a third in the Americas

 

Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, has experienced a growth in bookings in its Americas region of 34% so far in 2019, compared to the same period in 2018. Sales of software and services in the region have also more than quadrupled in the period, reflecting the increased demand for IP solutions, based on Nevion’s flagship software-defined products.

In 2019, Nevion has signed several significant deals with new and existing customers in in the Americas, most notably with a US national broadcast network and a leading international satellite services provider. These high-profile projects are currently in the process of being delivered.

To build on that growth, and to meet the surge in interest in workflow-transforming IP solutions, two seasoned and highly-regarded sales executives, Edward McGivern and Ron Rosenthal, have recently joined Nevion’s Americas team.

With 20 years’ experience selling high-value technology solutions in the broadcast market, McGivern has held senior sales positions at Snell Advanced Media, Imagine Communications and Grass Valley. Most recently, he was the director of Tektronix’s video sales division for the Americas.

LAURA PODOLAK WADDELL JOINS GRAVITY MEDIA TO MANAGE ITS NORTH AMERICAN STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS Posted: 11/11/2019
LAURA PODOLAK WADDELL JOINS GRAVITY MEDIA TO MANAGE ITS NORTH AMERICAN STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS

 

Gravity Media, the leading global provider of complex live broadcast facilities and production services to content owners, creators and distributors, has appointed former Pac-12 Networks Sr. Director, Content Production Laura Podolak Waddell as its new Director, Strategic Partnership Management for North America. Laura joins the team to enhance brand relationships with a focus on an ongoing studio operations project that Gravity Media is overseeing for a major media and technology brand.

After nearly a decade of local news production for radio stations in Colorado and California, Laura became part of Pac-12 Networks’ launch team in 2012. The considerable amount of broadcasting experience she gained during her time there has led her to join Gravity Media where she will bring teams across the country closer together to streamline production processes and improve content output for clients. As Laura emphasises, the role comprises everything that fascinates her about production; “compelling content, a fast-paced environment and all the unique personalities of content creators.”

Laura’s past seven years at Pac-12 Networks were focused on relationship building, enhancing communication across content teams and implementing production best practices. The biggest challenge she’s seen in the broadcasting industry over that time was engaging a young audience, finding out where the younger viewers are consuming content and what sports they’re most interested in watching to entice the next generation of fans. “Nobody can predict exactly where media consumption is going, but what we do know, is that people want to watch engaging content,” she notes.
