Euroconsult, the global consulting firm in the satellite and broadcasting sectors, has announced the hiring of Marc Welinski as Deputy Director of Broadcast & Broadband. In this new position, Marc will oversee and further develop Euroconsult activities in the fast-converging environment of broadcast and broadband businesses.
Welinski brings 20 years of experience and expertise in satellite, television and new telecommunications technologies. Formerly Director of Marketing & Commercial Strategy at Eutelsat, Welinski has held high level executive positions across the broadcast and telecom industries in the Pathé Group, France Telecom, France Television and the Vivendi Group. Welinski graduated from Ecole normale supérieure in Paris and holds an MBA from INSEAD.
“It is an honor and a pleasure to join the management of Euroconsult and contribute to the growth of the company,” said Welinski. “The core of the mission will be to develop new visions of the broadcast and broadband sector, to highlight for our clients new trends emerging from convergence and to support the rethinking of existing positioning and strategies.”
The arrival of Welinski brings a new dimension to Euroconsult’s expertise in the broadcast and broadband sectors, which leverages the ongoing research and consulting conducted over the last twenty years. Euroconsult’s rich body of work encompasses two dimensions:
• Geographical and business coverage, with the assessment of markets and business models of several hundred companies in over 50 countries, ranging from the most advanced to developing digital markets
• Comprehensive coverage of the value chain, ranging from technical solutions for content management and transmission to distribution and go-to market strategies
“Marc’s presence will allow us to accelerate our development and strengthen our activity with both existing and new customers. As business models are challenged by the growth of new services such as OTT and online offerings, companies need to be reactive to both align their strategies and revise their structures and offerings. Marc will improve our ability to provide an end-to-end service, ranging from piloting idea-generation sessions for executives and boards to strategic planning support, scenario assessments and due diligence in the advent of financial transactions,” said Pacome Révillon, CEO at Euroconsult.
