In a recent announcement, Amagi, a cloud-based technology company for media, has appointed Deepakjit Singh as its chief executive officer. With nearly 30 years of experience in broadcast technology, including executive positions at Encompass, Ascent Media, Bharti Airtel and BT, Singh has been brought in to increase Amagi's footprint across the globe. He will be working closely with the team to continue and expedite its impressive growth trajectory particularly in the US, where the company expects rapid growth this year following its official launch in the region in late 2017.
K.A. Srinivasan, co-founder, Amagi, says in a press release, "Deepakjit is one of the most well-regarded leaders in broadcast technology today and he will be a huge part of helping Amagi build upon its global success especially within the US and other rapidly evolving markets. We are really excited to have him on board."
Commenting on his appointment, Singh says in a press release, "Amagi's technology is second to none. Globally, there is a huge void in the media industry to provide distribution capabilities to content owners for both linear TV and non-linear video consumption market. With its technology, Amagi is perfectly positioned to fill this gap, delivering enviable business outcomes to broadcasters addressing their playout operations, management and monetization needs. I'm thrilled to spearhead Amagi's growth and position into being the technology and service provider of choice for the new-age, anywhere, anytime content consumer."
Prior to joining Amagi, Singh worked at Encompass as chief innovation officer and managing director for the APAC region, where he grew the company's business exponentially. Earlier, Singh worked as VP of sales and marketing at Ascent Media following a stint as SVP at Bharti Airtel.
