Jigsaw24 Media has promoted Chris Bailey into the newly-created position of head of innovation.

The promotion is effective immediately and sees Bailey reporting to Jigsaw24 Media’s head of technical infrastructure, Graham McGuinness.

Bailey joined Root 6 as a production runner in 2000 and has worked his way up the engineering ranks over the last 22 years.  He was responsible for a large team of engineers as the customer support manager when Root 6 was acquired by Jigsaw24 in 2017 and was appointed to lead the presales team as technical presales specialist M&E in 2018.

In his new role, Bailey is responsible for researching, testing and proposing new products and solutions to enhance the Jigsaw24 Media portfolio.  This includes partnering with the account team and customers to research and explore new solutions & managed services for Jigsaw24 Media clients as well as owning the business unit’s public cloud strategy for both on-prem and hosted solutions.   He will continue to act as the lead on strategic presales opportunities in addition to his new responsibilities.

“Our role as a systems integrator relies increasingly on our ability to design innovative solutions for an ever-changing media landscape,” says Jigsaw24 Media business director, Jason Cowan.  “While Jigsaw24 Media is fortunate to have renowned industry specialists on our team – like Graham McGuiness as head of technical infrastructure and Neal Kemsley as solution architect – this new position will further enhance our capabilities in this area.  Chris brings years of technical experience to the role and is trusted and respected by both our clients and fellow staff members – he was a natural choice for the job.”
