Broadpeak appoints new sales directors to manage North American expansion

Broadpeak has recently hired two new sales directors for the North American region to address increased sales and business growth. Howard Barouxis and Mario Rainville will manage sales and business development activities for the United States and Canada, which include accounts with major content providers, satellite service providers, telcos, MVPDs, and virtual MVPDs. In addition, Broadpeak has increased the number of team members at its operations center in Denver in order to maintain support for its North American customers.

"Technology innovations such as multicast ABR and Cloud PVR are making a significant impact on content delivery in North America," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. "As a leading provider of CDN solutions and the industry's first-ever multicast ABR solution, Broadpeak experiences a high demand from its customers who want to deliver superior video quality on all screens. Howard and Mario both have extensive track records for driving business growth and strong relationships with major pay-TV operators and service providers across North America. They will be critical in helping us deploy next-generation video solutions for our North American customers."

Prior to joining Broadpeak, Barouxis was a major accounts executive at Harmonic where he was responsible for managing all sales activities for major US media operators. Rainville was previously director of technical solutions and subject matter expert on media delivery offerings at Ericsson.
