Sohonet Hands Carroll Commercial Role
Sohonet, a specialist in connectivity and data management for the media and entertainment industry, has announced the appointment of Damien Carroll as its new commercial director. Carroll will head business operations globally with an immediate focus on upscaling activity and expanding Sohonet's European footprint.
Carroll brings a decade’s senior executive experience in the industry, previously working for Telecine, the Todd-AO Group and Ascent Media Group where he led financial planning and strategy as senior VP of Finance & Commercial.
Dave Scammell, CEO, Sohonet commented: "Carroll has extensive experience of media industry trends and defining business context for TV channel playout, content management & distribution, digital media supply chain and post production services. We are delighted to have him on board to help us expand our operations globally. With supply chains becoming increasingly modularised due to advances in IT, broadcasters, production companies and content owners are spending more time than ever before managing their supply chains. Customers consequently need greater flexibility in their supply chains with lower fixed costs and Sohonet is committed to developing exciting, new value-add services that achieve this."
Carroll added: “Sohonet has built a strong reputation and I am excited about over-seeing the creation and implementation of new strategies to provide an enhanced service package for new and existing customers. As the Sohonet Media Network continues to grow across Europe and beyond, and with the increasing dominance of digital media, the benefits for members looking to take advantage of industry collaboration will grow too.”
