Synamedia, the company being created from the acquisition of Cisco's Service Provider Video Software Solutions business, and backed by the Permira funds, has appointed Jean-Marc Racine as Chief Product Officer and General Manager of Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR). Jean-Marc will officially take up his position at Synamedia alongside incoming chairman Dr. Abe Peled and incoming CEO Yves Padrines after the transaction is completed in the first half of Cisco’s 2019 financial year.
Jean-Marc Racine, Chief Product Officer and General Manager at EMEAR added: “I am excited by Synamedia’s plans to double down on investment for innovation and the injection of fresh entrepreneurial dynamism that will see the firm flourish in the new TV age. Having consulted with many operators over the years, I understand the challenges operators face and believe Synamedia is ideally positioned to help traditional and new pay-TV operators exploit the many potential opportunities in this fast-moving market.”
