Former Comcast Technology Solutions general manager Matt McConnell has been appointed as the new chief executive officer of MediaKind.
He takes over from Angel Ruiz, who has been appointed chairman of the company’s board.
McConnell will be responsible for spearheading growth in MediaKind’s Cloud-based solutions and its focus on streaming products. He will work alongside chief technology officer and former Comcast colleague Allen Broome, chief business officer Raul Aldrey and the rest of the MediaKind executive leadership team.
Speaking about his appointment, McConnell said, “I have the privilege to join a great organisation that has created one of the best media portfolios in the industry and is driving an important transformation. We are experiencing unprecedented changes in the way people consume content, and our customers need to adjust their technology footprints and business models to meet these dynamic consumer needs.
“MediaKind is at the forefront of this technology transition and perfectly positioned to enable next generation user experiences. I am excited to be leading this charge as we increasingly focus on creating products that harness the potential of the cloud and maximise the power of streaming.”
