TMT Insights announces media operations division, makes key appointments

The company has appointed AWS executives Brian Kenworthy as vice president of media operations and Chris McCarthy as vice president of media solutions

TMT Insights is launching a new media operations division, which it says will address an industry-wide need for domain expertise and resources that can bridge the critical gap between an organisation’s traditional engineering and digital content operations groups.

TMT’s MediaOps will provide customers with access to a team of media experts skilled at building and maintaining media workflows, supporting distribution and localisation onboarding, and deploying various R&D initiatives leveraging industry best practices and the latest advances in media technology and tooling, said the company.

“M&E organisations recognise the need for change, whether it’s migrating to a cloud-based infrastructure or executing a specific digital media initiative,” said Hannah Barnhardt, COO of TMT Insights. “However, many lack enough internal resources with the necessary engineering, product, or operational expertise to build and iterate on their cloud-based and digital media supply chains. We’re providing a more predictable option that provides flexibility for our customers to manage their businesses growth.”

The company has appointed Brian Kenworthy as vice president of media operations and Chris McCarthy as vice president of media solutions. Both join TMT from senior roles at Amazon Web Services (AWS). 

“Brian and Chris share TMT’s vision for what defines long-term success in the media and entertainment industry, and I can’t think of two better choices to spearhead this critical new business initiative,” said Andy Shenkler, CEO of TMT Insights.

“They understand the unique dynamics affecting every aspect of the media supply chain, from production through distribution across multi-cloud and on-prem deployments. Plus, each knows how to collaborate with organisations as a partner to help them not just survive but thrive in an increasingly complex media landscape.”
