Nextologies Appoints New Key Hires
Nextologies has promoted Fernando Auñón to Senior Vice President of Sales, Strategic Partnerships and has hired Paul Parente as Senior Vice President of Sales, Global Partnerships.
Auñón, an industry veteran with 23 years of experience, six on the Nextologies team, will lead sales and revenue expansion with existing and new strategic partners. He joined Nextologies in 2019, bringing an extensive background in broadcast and video management technology to his role as vice president of sales. Prior to joining Nextologies, Auñón held numerous sales leadership positions within the broadcast and technology industries.
“Fernando is all about partnering long-term with the customers he serves and ensuring that they achieve the greatest possible success,” says Sasha Zivanovic, CEO, Nextologies. “He’s been instrumental in helping us expand our relationships as a company, which has driven revenue growth, but even more importantly, has increased the value we can deliver to our customers.”
Paul Parente comes to Nextologies with 27 years of experience in global broadcast and media sales, servicing broadcasters, cable networks, rights-holders, content creators, production companies, cable, telco and OTT providers. Before joining Nextologies, Parente held several senior business development positions at industry-leading companies, including CenturyLink, Level 3 Vyvx, Global Crossing, and he also co-founded Genesis Networks.
“Paul is a proven sales leader and strategic thinker with a track record of success in driving revenue growth. Most significantly, though, we share the same philosophy that solving our clients’ problems is the heart of a great business,” says Zivanovic. “For that reason, we knew Paul would be a great fit at Nextologies, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the team.”
Parente graduated from the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) with a BS in Business Management.
“My favorite part of my job is getting to know clients and learning how we can help them be more successful by solving their problems,” says Parente. “I’m excited to join the Nextologies team because the entire company is built on the principle of listening to their customers and building the innovative solutions they need to grow their businesses and increase their success. It’s exciting to be working with this team.”
Parente will begin as SVP of Sales, Global Partnerships, immediately. Both Auñón and Parente will report to Nextologies Chief Revenue Officer Christian Morsanutto.
