Alticast has announced the appointment of Mike Fallon as president of Alticast Americas as the company positions itself to capitalise on an increased number of technological and geographic growth opportunities in the global pay-TV industry.
Fallon, who previously headed Alticast’s North American customer engagement activities, will assume overall responsibility for Alticast’s business strategy and operational activities in the North and South American markets. John Carlucci, who had served as president and CTO of Alticast US, will devote all of his energies to his CTO role of identifying and productising new technologies that can drive business results for pay-TV operators.
“Our success with Videotron, our APAC customers and other operators in North America and worldwide have generated numerous new business and technology opportunities,” said Mansoo Han, CEO of Alticast. “The appointment of Mike Fallon will better enable us to leverage his strategic and leadership skills, while freeing John Carlucci to accelerate the technology solutions that the market is demanding.
As head of Alticast’s North American professional services efforts, Fallon has helped to drive three consecutive years of increasing revenue growth. During that time he has worked directly with Tier 1 North American pay-TV operators to determine their business objectives, and has built and leveraged an Alticast team that has expedited the creation of solutions that are meeting customers’ needs.
“Alticast’s best-in-class UX, our device software solutions and our next-generation cloud services platform already are positioned to drive value for our Americas customer base,” said Fallon. “We expect to build on that success as we bring the same CAS and DRM content protection technology that is widely deployed in APAC to the Americas market.”
Prior to Alticast, Fallon spent eight years with Advanced Digital Broadcast and its Vidiom Systems acquisition. As director of customer operations he led cross-functional teams that delivered an integrated software/hardware solution that was deployed nationally by Charter Communications and Time Warner Cable. Earlier in his career, Fallon spent three years with ARRIS.
