Video cloud service provider Brightcove has announced it has expanded its offerings in Australia and New Zealand with the launch of a local presence for its consulting arm, Brightcove Global Services.
Brightcove Global Services offers both existing and prospective customers bespoke solutions to help users maximise the full benefits of the platform. The team’s full range of services include advisory, development, integration, migration and re-encoding.
Brightcove has also added industry expert James Cooper as director of global solutions to the local team. Cooper joins the company from Bank of America, where he led the bank’s integration with Brightcove.
Furthermore, Peter Howard has been promoted to technical director of global solutions, following a two-year tenure as Brightcove’s digital strategist and solutions engineer.
Mark Stanton, vice president of Brightcove for Australia and New Zealand, said: “As Brightcove continues its accelerated growth, it takes more than great products to better serve our customers and meet increasing market demand.
“Every day we are tackling complex projects that have high strategic importance to our clients’ businesses and, with these appointments, we now have the leadership in place to back that up and work more closely alongside our customers’ teams.
“Brightcove is proving itself time and time again as a key player across Australia and New Zealand with new customer wins, partnerships, and expanding product offerings. We have every confidence in James and Peter leading the charge to build out new levels of customisation and consultation for our clients.”
Cooper said: “As a longtime Brightcove customer myself, I’ve seen firsthand why it is the go-to partner for digital marketing and media organisations around the world.
“The Global Services team in the US has been drawing on deep, collective digital media expertise to tackle some of the most complex issues in the industry and address market demand for more customisation.
“The opportunity to bring this degree of insight and personalisation to ANZ means we can now better balance all our customers’ needs and ensure the most successful implementations locally through a highly curated approach.”
