LONDON—Broadcast solutions specialist ES Broadcast has hired Roger Bowley as senior account manager.
Bowley 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 equipment supply, systems integration, archiving and content services business divisions to understand their needs and to develop end-to-end solutions from within the company’s expansive portfolio of services.

Bowley’s experience over more than three decades in broadcast ranges from content acquisition to delivery, with expertise in video production, post and publishing workflow solutions including live production, edit, MAM, playout TX and OTT, VOD and live streaming technologies.
His CV boasts roles with some of the leading manufacturers and service providers in the industry.
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 also had stints at workflow automation specialists Marquis Broadcast and Omnibus, prior to heading up UK sales teams at manufacturers Miranda and Grass Valley.
