Industry veteran takes on regional sales role for Scandinavia, Netherlands and Luxembourg
Imagine Communications, a market leader in advertising management and video infrastructure solutions serving global TV networks, broadcast stations, multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs), governments and enterprise markets, today announced that it has appointed Edo van der Gaag as Regional Sales Manager for Scandinavia, Netherlands and Luxembourg. The addition of Van der Gaag is part of Imagine Communications’ ongoing efforts to deliver focused account resources, unmatched customer service, and support the transition from traditional broadcast environments toward software-defined networks and IP infrastructures.
Van der Gaag joins the sales team for Nordic and Central Europe and will collaborate with Anders Francke who already directs sales in Scandinavia.
Van der Gaag ran a business for the last 20 years that was focused on developing cutting edge solutions for broadcasters and content owners. He was most recently with Digital Rapids (acquired in April 2014 by Imagine Communications) where he served as Director, Nordic & Central Europe. In his new role with Imagine Communications, Van der Gaag has responsibility for customer relationships and solutions made possible by the industry’s only complete, end-to-end product portfolio.
“The electronic media industry is undergoing a seismic shift and broadcasters, service providers and content owners in this region are among the most forward-looking in the industry,” said Mathias Eckert, EMEA Vice President for Imagine Communications. “I am delighted to have Edo on board to support this important work with our customers. He is technically very savvy and extremely well-respected in the market. He has great connections and has the entrepreneurial skills and technical prowess that are so valuable in developing innovative business solutions tailored to the needs of our customers.”
Edo van der Gaag is a Dutch national and is based in Amsterdam.
