MediaWAN Team Gains Sales and Product Management Muscle From Industry Veterans
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS—At IBC, world-leading media technology innovator Solid State Logic (SSL) announced two key U.S. appointments to support burgeoning commercial interest following the introduction of SSL’s Gravity MediaWAN technology.
Joe Walsh has been appointed as Vice President, Sales, Media Production Systems and Shaun McTernan joins as Product Manager, Media Production Systems. Both appointments, effective immediately, are designed to take advantage of heightened interest following Gravity’s successful installation at NNS (Network News Services) in New York.
Walsh joins SSL from Focus Enhancements based in Campbell, CA, where he was Vice President, Channel Sales for the supplier of video products and asset management systems for digital media markets. Previously he was with Pinnacle Systems and Ciprico. In his new role, Walsh will lead and manage all aspects of SSL sales activities for North and South America, including key account handling and sales channel development.
McTernan also joins SSL from Focus Enhancements, where he was Vice President, Enterprise Solutions, chiefly responsible for major, complex sales of digital signage and asset management solutions. McTernan will now focus on creating a rapid growth platform for SSL’s MediaWAN technologies.
Welcoming the pair to the company, SSL’s Managing Director Antony David said, “Our video business is entering a very exciting and dynamic phase. The addition of Joe and Shaun will accelerate the already robust interest in our MediaWAN technology. They have extensive – and highly successful – track records in their respective careers and I am delighted to welcome them to Solid State Logic. We look forward to their contributions to the growing team
