Broadcast industry veteran David Jorba has joined TVU Networks as executive vice president, managing director of Europe.
In his new role, Jorba will lead TVU’s European operations from its regional base in Barcelona and provide a local presence in all major European markets.
Having spent over 20 years working within the industry, Jorba was most recently the president and managing director at Vizrt Americas, and has also served as a board advisor to Barcelona-based digital marketing agency TMT Factory, as well as to New York’s interactive data applications and visual branding Polygon Labs.
“We are pleased to welcome David to the TVU team,” said Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks. “David has successfully built and run business operations in Europe and the US. His expertise will help tremendously in accelerating our European efforts.”
“TVU is a company that has established itself as a leader in IP workflows and highly innovative production solutions,” added Jorba. “I’m excited to be part of a company that has the products, ideas and talent needed to build up the most cost-effective, flexible and reliable live production platform of the future.”
Additionally on the 2nd April, TVU is expanding its regional headquarters and moving to the heart of Barcelona’s innovation district, known as 22@Barcelona. Tripling its office space has enabled the company to build and launch a new logistics platform to better support broadcaster live coverage requests and grow its team of broadcast engineering experts.
