Building on his telco and content tech background, Eisenberg’s focus will be on accelerating growth of the Sandbox group through its existing partners and new collaborations amongst global Service Providers and Telcos in particular, as well as OEMs and new verticals. He will be working on bringing to life new products and services, unleashing the company’s digital products that include preschool learning platform Hopster and Brazilian kids edutainment platform, PlayKids.
Eisenberg will bring on board his previous experience at TV streaming pioneer, Netgem, where he spent eight years bringing together entertainment streaming, technology, and Telco distribution.
