Evolution Digital Announces Senior Leadership Changes
Evolution Digital today announces changes to the executive leadership team to better position itself as a leading software and IP-centric video solutions provider to the global cable industry. Vice President of Video Engineering, Panneer Ramalingam, will take on the role of Chief Technology Officer as Brent Smith, Chief Technology Officer and President, moves into the newly-created role of Chief Strategy Officer.
In Panneer’s expanded role, he is responsible for spearheading Evolution Digital’s focus on pioneering the leading products and solutions to help operators migrate their video services to IP delivery, enabling the delivery of TV to all connected devices in the home. As the Founder of i-Velozity, which was acquired by Evolution Digital in 2015 and evolved into Evolution Digital’s eVUE-TV® IP Video Platform, Panneer has extensive knowledge and experience in building and managing software groups across multiple locations. He is now responsible for leading the engineering, development and support teams across a global presence.
Since co-founding Evolution Digital in 2008, Brent has acted as the company’s overall visionary, driving road maps and future product strategies. Brent is responsible for understanding customers’ goals, needs, capabilities and infrastructure and, as Chief Strategy Officer, he will provide the blueprint and approach for direction, as well as establish key client and partner advancements. Brent will work closely with the sales, marketing, product and engineering groups across the organization.
“We look forward to driving our continued growth as we best situate ourselves as cable operators’ leading next-generation IP video solutions provider,” said Chris Egan, CEO and co-founder. “I am excited for Brent and Panneer to lead our innovation and better serve the needs of providers in this rapidly-evolving industry. Today’s announcement allows us to improve upon our operational excellence, as well as pivot in taking a dominant role with our customers as they move to IP video delivery.”
