Virtualised media production solutions specialist Nevion has announced that its founder Thomas Heinzer has been appointed as the CEO of Nevion following the departure of Geir Bryn-Jensen “to pursue new projects”. The Sony-owned company’s existing management team remains unchanged.
“Nevion has a proud history of reinvention and is now working closely with parent company Sony to deliver the future of broadcast production,” said Heinzer. “After all these years with the company, I remain excited about the industry we are in and what we do.”
Heinzer founded signal routing and transport systems provider Network Electronics in 1996, which later became Nevion in 2007 and was acquired by Sony in October 2020. He has played a significant role in the company’s M&A activities, and has most recently served in the management team as EVP strategic projects.
“Of course, I would like to acknowledge the great contribution of Geir Bryn-Jensen in shaping Nevion into the company it is now. I think I can speak for everyone in Nevion in wishing him the very best for the future,” he continued.
“I look forward to leading Nevion in this exciting new phase of the company, with the support of the management team and the great people who work in there.”
