TVU Networks, the market and technology leader in cloud and IP-based live video solutions, today announced Allan Delaurier joined the company on Jan. 4 as vice president of sales for Canada and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Based in the greater Toronto area, he is focused on helping to meet the growing demand for TVU cloud-based and remote production solutions in both regions.
A 20-year industry veteran, Delaurier most recently served as sales manager for Canada at Avid Technology, where he rebuilt the company’s sales team and developed strong relationships throughout the region. He has also held leadership roles at Grass Valley, Harris Corporation, and Evertz Microsystems, where he directed wide-scale sales and development initiatives for global markets.
“Allan has a deep understanding of the Canadian market, and built his reputation by consistently delivering high-value solutions to enterprise-level companies. He’s also run global markets in a product management and commercial leadership capacity,” said Kyle Luther, vice president of sales for North America, TVU Networks. “With his extensive industry knowledge and experience, Allan can help production teams in different market segments – including broadcast, corporate, and house of worship, and others – transition from traditional infrastructures to cost-effective, remote production cloud workflows.”
“This is an exciting time to be a part of TVU because of our global expansion and the broadcast industry’s growing use of cloud-based technologies,” Delaurier said. “I’m enjoying the opportunity to work with our valued customers across Canada and the CIS to build long-term relationships and help them embrace IP-based production.”
