Brick Eksten has been appointed the new CEO of Qligent.
Eugene Shchemelev, Qligent’s founder, has been president and CEO since 2014, and will continue with the company as executive chairman of the board of directors.
Eksten joins Qligent from Imagine Communications where he most recently served as CTO, Playout and Networking Solutions and oversaw the company’s roadmap for transitioning customers’ broadcast operations to the Cloud.
“As broadcasters and other traditional media enterprises move towards a DTC business and technical model, they need technology partners they can rely on to help them meet increased customer service demands and overcome new operational challenges,” said Eksten.
“With proven large-scale deployments, deep expertise, and managed services experience, Qligent is well-positioned to help customers deliver better service to their consumers while freeing them to focus on their content. I’m excited by the opportunity to help Qligent build further on its success.”
