Front Porch Digital, the global leader for solutions that migrate, manage, and market media content, today announced it has named two experienced product development executives to new positions on its marketing team. Susan Crouse has joined Front Porch Digital as product marketing director for the DIVASolutions Manage line of products, while Travis Johnson will serve as product marketing manager for DIVASolutions Migrate. Their responsibilities include identifying appropriate Front Porch Digital solutions to meet customer needs and ensuring that customers have both the access and the support required for implementing those solutions.
Crouse most recently served as a consultant for systems integrator GWH&A, whose clients include Hallmark Network, Crayola, and Sprint. Among her responsibilities on various projects were business development, product design, client-business communication, testing, and product launch. As a product manager with BTS in Salt Lake City early in her career, Crouse was part of a team that won an Emmy(R) award for pioneering 3-D animation.
Johnson comes to Front Porch Digital from NASA where he led the Johnson Space Center (JSC) Digital Video Library and Scene Listing departments, managing cataloging, organization, maintenance, and preservation of the world's largest digital collection of moving imagery focused on manned spaceflight.
Front Porch Digital's DIVASolutions Manage product line began with the iconic DIVArchive(R) system, which today is acknowledged as the global leader in content storage management. The DIVASolutions Manage product line also includes DIVAdirector(R), an easy-to-use and cost-effective media asset management system.
Front Porch Digital's Migrate products comprise the SAMMA(TM) line of products for migrating media content from videotape to safe, secure, and readily accessible digital storage.
"Both Susan and Travis have practical, user experience with the complexities of digital video storage and with managing large-scale, complex projects," said Phil Jackson, Front Porch Digital's chief marketing officer. "This experience and perspective is core to our continued customer-centric innovation strategy, and further represents our commitment to delivering the best possible solutions to our customers. I'm excited to have them join the team."
Both Crouse and Johnson are based at Front Porch Digital's headquarters in Louisville, Colo., and report to Jackson.
