Live and on-demand OTT service specialist Simplestream has appointed Fabio Gallo to the position of Sales Director EMEA. Gallo will initially drive the company’s suite of OTT products, enabling sports rights owners and holders to launch next-generation TV services.
Based in the company’s London office, Gallo will be responsible for devising and implementing Simplestream’s sales strategy to drive business, managing a team across Europe, and leveraging channel and sports rights holder relationships to accelerate continued growth. He will also work closely with the company’s product department to optimise its solutions and marketing initiatives for sports federations and content owners.
“Simplestream is distinctively positioned to help lead sports broadcast and content owners into the evolving multiscreen landscape,” commented Gallo. “I see immense opportunities in that space, with the rise of 4K market saturation and exploding growth of e-sports among other emerging developments, and I look forward to helping define our strategy in Europe. I am delighted to be joining this innovative business to provide our sports customers with the future-proofed solutions they need to reach their viewers in a more appealing and personalised way.”
Gallo came from Deltatre Group where he served as the Business Development Director, driving strategic partnerships with major B2B sports organisations. He has also previously been responsible for fostering digital strategies and driving global video content distributions for Dorna Sports and FC Barcelona.
