Atlanta GA, USA – 6 September, 2016 – Integrated playout pioneer and solutions provider, BroadStream Solutions, has seen continued growth in 2016 and recently committed additional resources to Asia Pacific with the appointment of a new sales executive and creation of a new engineering position in the region.

New Regional Director, Kevin Dowd, will be based in Hong Kong and be responsible for managing the overall business in the region and spearhead new growth as part of BroadStream’s overall commitment to the Asia Pacific market. Mr. Dowd brings a wealth of experience to BroadStream, having spent over 20 years developing the broadcast market in China and throughout the Asia Pacific region for key companies in the industry including Kasenna, RGB Networks, Viewcast Corporation, Haivision and most recently, as President of Asia, for Media Excel.

“We are delighted about Kevin joining us”, says COO David Bowes. “He brings a totally new dimension to the team and his resume speaks for itself. Kevin is a key figure in the Asian broadcast market and has already started to make significant contributions and additions to our pipeline in this important market.”

In addition to Dowd, BroadStream has also recruited a new Sales Engineer for the APAC region. This is a new position for the region and will be responsible for supporting the Company’s existing customer base as well as new customers on-boarding through Mr. Dowd’s leadership.

“By strengthening our Asia Pacific base in both sales and engineering, we are increasing our commitment to the region and building a solid foundation for the future,” says President and CEO, Herbert Brenninkmeijer. “Our investments in people will continue and has already proven successful. BroadStream has achieved 170% growth in revenue year on year over the last twelve months, and we will see revenue double again in 2017”.
