Broadpeak CDN Eye North American Growth

Broadpeak CDN Eye North American GrowthBroadpeak CDN customers have access to one of the world’s leading content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions providers for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide. They operate a high performance content delivery network and boast large global customers including 3 Mobile, T-Mobile, Emtel, SES Americom, Nowo and VTVcab. This is a testament to the quality of their network and represents impressive growth for a relatively young company.

While the Broadpeak CDN is undeniably a leader in video CDN services, much of their customer base has historically been in Europe. That is slowly changing, however, and they have experienced a high level of growth in North American of late. As such, the company has announced two new hires in the USA to help manage and further increase this growth. The new hires are Howard Barouxis and Mario Rainville, and they will come onboard as Sales Director. They will manage sales and business development activities for the United States and Canada.

“Technology innovations such as multicast ABR and Cloud PVR are making a significant impact on content delivery in North America. As a leading provider of CDN solutions and the industry’s first-ever multicast ABR solution, Broadpeak experiences a high demand from its customers who want to deliver superior video quality on all screens,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “Howard and Mario both have extensive track records for driving business growth and strong relationships with major pay-TV operators and service providers across North America. They will be critical in helping us deploy next-generation video solutions for our North American customers.”

Before joining Broadpeak, Howard Barouxis was a major accounts executive at Harmonic, where he was responsible for managing all sales activities for major U.S. media operators. His education history includes a Bachelor of Science degree from American International College and an MBA in finance from Western New England University. Mario Rainville previously held the role of director of technical solutions and subject matter expert on media delivery offerings at Ericsson. He has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Laval University. Both new recruit’s will be able to put their experience to great use at Broadpeak as the company aims to further increase growth in North America.
