Horrell appointed Imagen CEO16 May 2017
Imagen has appointed Charlie Horrell as its new CEO, taking over from Tom Blake after six years at the helm.
The move, which Imagen said “strengthens its senior management team and highlights the ongoing ambition for growth in new markets”, sees Blake move into the role of commercial director, providing strategic guidance for the company and working closely with key customers.
Horrell brings exceptional leadership and commercial experience, most recently as managing director of Diligent. It achieved significant growth under his five-year direction and was acquired for $625 million.
Horrell said: “[Imagen] is in great shape and enjoys a high reputation across sports and media businesses. I’m joining at a very exciting point in the company’s evolution – I’m looking forward to taking this great solution to a wider market.
“So many companies are struggling to streamline their video management operations and make more of their assets – Imagen is the must-have service to help them enhance their business communications. “
Blake added: “After six highly enjoyable years in charge I’m delighted to hand over the reins to Charlie. His track record of driving businesses forward speaks for itself – his extensive commercial experience will help us gain ground in new markets and refine our operations.
“We are confident that Charlie will make a major contribution as we continue on our growth path.”
