Broadcast solutions specialist ES Broadcast has appointed Roger Bowley as senior account manager to support key clients of the group’s equipment supply, systems integration, archiving and content services business divisions.
He joins the company from cloud services provider AWS, where he was Elemental principal sales specialist for almost five years.
The focus of Bowley’s role as senior account manager will be to work with key clients across ES Broadcast’s divisions to capture their specific requirements and develop end-to-end solutions from within the company’s portfolio of services.
The appointment follows ES Broadcast’s recent acquisition of archiving specialist Memnon from Sony, as part of its vision for providing a comprehensive suite of solutions in a complex and fast-paced content market.
Bowley has more than three decades experience in broadcast, ranging from content acquisition to delivery.
Bowley’s early career was in telecoms and audio, before spending more than a decade in European sales roles with broadcast manufacturers Quantel and Snell & Wilcox.
He had spells with workflow automation specialists Marquis Broadcast and Omnibus, prior to heading up UK sales teams at manufacturers Miranda and Grass Valley.
Most recently he spent more than four years at AWS, working on innovative cloud-based content solutions, including cloud content distribution, OTT, live streaming and VOD delivery, aligned with wider AWS services such as storage, AI & ML and data analytics.
Ben Murphy, Group CEO of ES Broadcast, said: “Roger’s range of experience in the broadcast and creative technology spheres is almost unparalleled. He has a depth of knowledge not only of traditional broadcast but of the full gamut of technology, from legacy formats to cutting-edge cloud solutions. This will be invaluable in developing complex client-focussed solutions that require the integration of services from across ES Broadcast’s various business divisions.”
Bowley commented: “I am delighted to be joining ES Broadcast at such an exciting time in the company’s development. Being able to correctly match client’s requirements for video content against their budgets and rising viewer expectations is more critical than ever and ES Broadcast has the knowledge, relationships and experience to successfully deliver those solutions.”
