"I'm thrilled to be joining MediaSilo at such a pivotal time in the evolution of the media space," said Thomas. "As media companies and creative executives look to the cloud for improved efficiency and operational value, it's exciting to be part a solution designed from the ground up by media professionals for media professionals. MediaSilo is innately attuned to the unique needs of its customers, and this is apparent in the immediate, game-changing impact its technology has on companies ranging from small creative houses and productions to large media enterprises and corporate brands."
