Telestream Shifts Executives
January 6, 2006
Executive changes within Telestream were recently announced. David Heppe was promoted to president and chief operating officer. Dan Castles, chief executive officer, will play a more active role in directing the Nevada City, Calif., company's FlipMac4 business.
"Over the past eight years, Telestream has experienced high growth and gained a strong position in the broadcast industry segment," said Castles. "Now we have some unique opportunities to expand beyond that into broader market segments."
For the past seven years, Heppe had been in charge of worldwide sales and marketing programs for Telestream and was most recently senior vice president of sales and marketing.
"I'm excited about my new role in helping manage the company's growth to the next level," Heppe said. "We're in a very dynamic market, where the technology and customer needs are changing rapidly." He added that Telestream's responsiveness to market needs has been a major contribution to the success of that company.
