Assuming the position of COO is Jean Beaudry, who joins BroadSign with extensive experience in all aspects of software development.

Beaudry has held leadership positions at Microsoft, Avid/Softimage and Autodesk, and will now be managing BroadSign’s daily operations.

Bruno Dumais recently took on the role of vice-president of finance.

Possessing over 20 years of experience in financial, forecast and strategic planning, Dumais is responsible for overseeing BroadSign’s global financial activities. He was previously CFO at Mitec Telecom.

In 2013, BroadSign experienced record growth by doubling its sales and increasing its overall subscriptions by a third, nearing 60,000 active player subscriptions.

Entering BroadSign during this period of ample growth, Beaudry says, “As I help strengthen the company’s operations, Brian Dusho (president and CEO) will be able to focus on strategic growth opportunities that will catapult BroadSign to new heights in the near future.”

Brian Dusho says that 2013 was marked by many memorable milestones for BroadSign, including Its upgraded software platform, BroadSign X, and its Android-based smart player, BroadSign Xpress, of which 4,500 units have been sold to date. BroadSign’s title as the ‘number one digital signage software vendor’ was also awarded by DailyDOOH for the third year in a row.
