The former SVP & General Manager of Comcast Technology Solutions has been appointed as the new chief executive officer of MediaKind.
Matt McConnell brings over 30 years’ experience in the media industry, driving growth, building innovative technology platforms and enabling service providers to operate at scale.
McConnell will report directly to the board of directors, including former CEO Angel Ruiz, who takes up the position of Chairman of the Board.
“We are experiencing unprecedented changes in the way people consume content, and our customers need to adjust their technology footprints and business models to meet these dynamic consumer need,” said McConnell. “I am excited to be leading this charge as we increasingly focus on creating products that harness the potential of the cloud and maximise the power of streaming.”
At Comcast, McConnell established and operated the Comcast Technology Solutions division from 2012-2018. During this time, revenue more than quadrupled and McConnell transformed the organisation from 200 US domestic employees to a global cloud video products business with offices in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
“The market and consumer behaviours are changing faster than ever and Matt is a battle-proven media executive with an extensive track record in successfully leading and growing business in this sector,” said Ruiz.
MediaKind is a joint venture between One Equity Partners and Ericsson.
