LTN appoints Gardner as VP of Business Development EMEA
March 7, 2023
LTN, a specialist in transformative media technology and video transport solutions, has announced the appointment of Justine Gardner as the company’s new VP of Business Development EMEA.
Gardner is an accomplished and highly skilled media professional with over 20 years of industry experience, working on the front lines of media distribution and supporting tier-one sports, news, and entertainment customers. With a deep understanding of the global broadcast market and its future evolving needs, Gardner will lead LTN’s commercial expansion across the EMEA region, enabling customer success, driving new relationships, and powering business growth.
Gardner has held several key management roles in organizations, including Intelsat and, most recently, Tata Communications. She brings a wealth of expertise in live broadcasting for major global events and deep experience in helping media companies navigate the transition from satellite to IP-based distribution.
Drawing on her broad skill set, market knowledge, and customer-centric approach, Gardner will enable broadcasters, content providers, and rightsholders to reliably distribute and monetise their high-value content efficiently and at scale. Harnessing LTN’s innovative solutions portfolio, built around the company’s industry-leading ultra-reliable multicast IP network – the LTN Network, current and new customers across EMEA can seamlessly migrate away from legacy satellite and fiber contribution distribution models. This can be achieved while utilising a suite of metadata insertion, channel playout, and content versioning services to drive operational and cost efficiencies and unlock wider revenue streams.
LTN Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Malik Khan, said: “Justine’s appointment underlines LTN’s growing presence on the international stage. The EMEA region is an exciting market with endless opportunities and complexities for media organisations. With Justine on board, we’re incredibly excited to empower customers to efficiently version, distribute, and monetise great content across multiple digital platforms, geographies, and cultures. Justine shares our vision for the future of broadcasting and media, and I am delighted to welcome her to the LTN family.”
Gardner added: “Throughout my career, I’ve always enjoyed working closely with clients, exploring pain points, and getting to know their unique requirements. Supporting customers in delivering their best content to global audiences and achieving their business objectives is hugely rewarding. I’m excited to be joining LTN at a pivotal time for the global media industry, and I look forward to helping our customers capture new opportunities across EMEA and beyond.”
