These guys (BTiG) were previously talking to IDC and had used IDC systems in a number of trials with the JML Retail Branded Fixture folks in the UK.
MediaTile has also brought on board two new senior executives to manage the demand for, and adoption of MediaTile systems – Jean van Damme, VP Sales for Europe, and Tony Stramandinoli, SVP Worldwide Operations.
Jean van Damme, based in Ghent, Belgium, will be responsible for European sales, distribution, and business development activities (he will hope to add new distribution partners across Western and Eastern Europe while fulfilling interest and demand from existing partners in Scandinavia, Benelux, Italy, Greece, Germany, France and the UK).
Tony Stramandinoli, based in Scotts Valley, CA, will oversee hardware deployments of MediaTile’s Digital-Sign-in-a-Box systems and the operation and support of MediaTile’s customer-facing command and control center, the Broadcast Portal.
Tony Stramandinoli comes to MediaTile from SMC Corporation where he directed Operations and Product Development.
