EVS reveals new vision

EVS has a new strategy that includes a focus on sports, entertainment, news and media markets; a new internal structure; and a new brand and visual identity. This will be publicly unveiled at NAB 2013 under the broad theme Enriched Live Production. During the show, EVS will highlight new workflow solutions aimed at optimising the live broadcasting infrastructure to embrace new connected operations and ‘live everywhere’ offerings for the consumer. The new strategy “will enable us to better deliver our investments in R&D and product innovation, help drive the expansion of our sales network, and continue to improve our user training and customer support and bring even better products to the market faster,” said EVS CEO Joop Janssen. He added: “Our ambition is to accelerate the growth of our company and reach a wider range of customers more quickly through a more focused strategy. Each market has its own specific challenges and opportunities, so by aligning our structure with the particular market demands of our customers, we aim to help them continue to be successful, both now and in the future.” To better support the new market strategy, EVS has strengthened its executive committee. The executive committee comprises Joop Janssen, managing director & CEO; Luc Doneux, EVP sports division; Henry Alexander, SVP entertainment and news divisions (as from April 2013); Benoît Février, SVP media division; Jacques Galloy, EVP/CFO, corporate services; Bernard Stas, SVP product strategy; Vincent Theunissen, SVP human resources; Michel De Wolf, SVP/CTO; Nicolas Bourdon, SVP marketing. A SVP operations and professional services will soon be appointed to manage manufacturing and supply chain, customer support, project management and training functions. The sales organisation has also been updated with Quentin Grutman as SVP EMEA, Frederic Garroy as SVP Americas and Olivier Heurteaux as SVP Asia Pacific. They report directly to CEO Joop Janssen. To support its new corporate strategy and vision, EVS will be rolling out a new brand and visual identity, as well as a redesigned website. – Jake Young
