TVU Networks Increases Latin American Expansion With New Hires
TVU Networks announced the company is expanding its team in Latin America following the appointment of Rafael Castillo as General Manager, Latin America, last May.
Castillo will lead the new team, comprised of: Edgar Chavez, Regional Manager, Mexico and Central America; Ludwyng Cuervo, Regional Manager, Andean Region and Caribbean; and Mateus Domingues, Solutions Architect, Latin America. All three are experienced engineers. Together they will offer sales and local area support for the entire TVU product portfolio to Latin American broadcasters.
“Latin America provides significant opportunities for our company,” says Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “We’ve always been very active in this region. Now, we’ve got an excellent team in place, with local focus, who know the technology and the needs of our customers. They will elevate the level of communication with our current customers as well as outreach to those considering TVU. This new regional support is a further reflection of our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers wherever they may be – today and into the future.”
Chavez, who has a specialization in Telecommunications, began his career as a support engineer for various resellers, focusing on brands such as Miranda, FOR-A, and Volicon. He’s worked in sales and business development for companies such as: Excelencia en Comunicaciones y Tecnología, Telefonica Media Networks, and Bitcentral.
Cuervo joins TVU with over 15 years in the broadcast market. He participated in the development and implementation of projects associated with the digital TV transition in Colombia. Most recently, Cuervo led the technical and sales departments at Istronyc Comunicaciones. Before that, he worked for RCN and Caracol Television.
Domingues comes to TVU after 10 years in the broadcast industry, largely in support and pre-sales. While at Brazilian resellers AVICOM and Alliance Technologies, he supported companies such as Ericsson, Bridge Technologies, Ross Video, and Riedel Communications.
The three join Castillo and Claudio Frugus, TVU sales director for Brazil, just in time for TVU’s participation at the 2018 SET Expo in Sao Paulo from August 28-30. TVU Networks will showcase its innovative video-over-IP technology offerings at SET, including the new MediaMind platform being shown for the first time in Brazil. TVU Networks will exhibit in booth #18 during SET Expo, held at the Expo Center Norte Red Pavilion and Convention Center.
“SET Expo is the largest event in the Latin American market, and it attracts top-quality creatives and technical personnel involved in each aspect of the production chain,” says Castillo. “SET Expo is a key show for us because we have a solid and growing base of customers throughout Latin America. I’m particularly eager to show our current and prospective broadcast customers what our new MediaMind and remote production solutions can do for them.”
TVU Networks products will have its full portfolio on display at SET Expo, including its cloud-based in-studio and intuitive remote production systems.
