MediaKind has appointed Allen Broome as the company’s new CEO after leading research and development as its CTO.
Broome replaces former Comcast Technology Solutions general manager Matt McConnell, whose appointment was only announced in July last year.
Prior to joining MediaKind, Brome was VP Cloud Engineering at Comcast Cable.
“The Board would like to thank Matt McConnell for his service and leadership and wish him well for the future,” said Angel Ruiz, Chairman of the Board, MediaKind. “With the elevation of Allen Broome to CEO, we have a true Engineering visionary at the heart of our company. Allen is well equipped to lead and guide our future strategy roadmap and technology innovation and ensure that we continue to provide the best level of support and collaboration with our customers and partners worldwide.”
Allen Broome, CEO, MediaKind, added: “I am excited to lead the amazing MediaKind team into this next chapter and to continue to drive our innovation leadership in the media industry. Our goal is to give our customers the freedom to stream live without limits. We’ve tackled the many complex barriers of live video delivery to unlock unprecedented efficiency and ensure quality and low latency at any scale – enabling our customers and partners to focus on their own next-level creativity in content and experience.”
MediaKind says its “next chapter” will focus on powering MVPDs, broadcasters, content owners, and rights holders to focus on live streaming, without limits.
