EVS has appointed Trevor Spielmann to VP of Sales Media Infrastructure, and Matt Salvidge as Solutions Manager of Media Infrastructure.
Spielmann has over 20 years of experience in the media and broadcast industry, during which he has worked in a variety of Business Development and Sales roles focusing on complex software solutions, professional audio/video solutions, video servers and postproduction equipment. Prior to EVS, he was Director of Business Development for newsroom solutions at CGI, an IT and business consulting services company (formerly known as Annova Systems and SCISYS).
Spielmann’s significant experience leading high-performing sales teams and his strong background in broadcast and media will be instrumental in helping EVS drive its Media Infrastructure business forward on an international level.
