Bhavesh Upadhyaya joins the OTT services company as VP of Online Operations in the Americas. During his time at Verizon he led the delivery of several high-value OTT platforms for major brands that reached millions of consumers on a daily basis.
Upadhyaya will lead a 50-person strong digital team spread across Deltatre’s three US offices.
Commenting on the appointment, Deltatre’s President of Americas, Andrea Marini, said: “Bhavesh is a seasoned veteran of the industry. He’s a natural problem solver and team leader, and his track record in the technical delivery of sports services is second to none. Bhavesh is precisely what we need as Deltatre’s Americas business continues through a period of substantial growth.”
Upadhyaya added: “I’ve worked with Deltatre on many projects over the years, including the Beijing and Vancouver Olympics. As OTT changes the content delivery game in sport, I’m excited to be part of a company that’s driving innovation and the future of this technology for many of the biggest names in the business.”
Alongside overseeing projects in North America and Canada, part of Upadhyaya’s remit will be to work alongside Marini in growing Deltatre’s LATAM business, that’s slated to become a key focus for the company in the second half of 2019.
