LiveU Expands Broadcast Sales Group With Experienced Industry Veterans

HACKENSACK, N.J., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveU ( www.liveu.tv), the leader in portable live video-over-cellular solutions, announced today the expansion of its broadcast sales group, and the hiring of several industry veterans in sales and account management positions. The new hires will assist in continuing LiveU's rapid growth, as both the number of accounts and number of LiveU products offered to those accounts have grown significantly over the years. The new members of the sales team bring a wealth of sales and technical expertise within the broadcast technology space.

Bruce Levine joins LiveU as Director of North American Broadcast Sales, and will manage the group.  Bruce brings many years of experience in senior sales positions with ChyronHego, Scopus (now Harmonic), Autocue and Avid, where he has worked closely with networks, owned and operated stations, and independent media groups.

Bill Hendler joins as Enterprise Account Executive and is based in NY.  He will be responsible for several of LiveU's strategic relationships with large broadcast networks.  Bill's involvement with the broadcast industry began at Systems Resource Corporation, later to become Chyron. He held management positions in Product Development, Sales, Business Development, and Divisional Management, and ultimately became Chyron's CTO. He has been responsible for many of Chyron's technical innovations, has a broad perspective in advanced television technologies, and has built crucial partnerships with major customers and technology partners. Bill is an active speaker and panelist with a number of industry associations, and is a past Vice President of the Advanced Television Forum.

Kurt Caruthers is joining LiveU as Midwest Regional Account Manager and will manage strategic accounts within the region. He is based out of Kansas City.  Kurt brings a valuable combination of both sales and engineering expertise to his role. He has held senior account management positions within the broadcast technology industry at Miranda Technologies and Avid. He started his broadcast career as a Station Engineer at KOAM-TV Pittsburg, KS, and subsequently worked as an Application-Sales Support Engineer at Odetics Broadcast. Kurt is a Certified Broadcast Television Engineer by the Society of Broadcast Engineers, and holds an Electronics Technology Degree from Pittsburg State University.

Ryad Kahale will assume the role of Southeast Regional Account Manager, based out of Atlanta, and will manage strategic accounts within the region.  Ryad has held a number of senior sales positions in the broadcast technology industry, most recently at Front Porch Digital, and previously at Avid, Pathfire, Vizrt, and Chyron. Ryad brings deep ties with many customers throughout the Southeast, and is an active SMPTE member.  

Mike Savello, LiveU VP Sales commented, "With LiveU's exceptional growth in the past few years, our growing number of large accounts, and the increasing number of product lines that LiveU offers, we needed to grow our North American sales team accordingly. We went from a company that offered one product, the best transmission backpack in the world, to a company that offers a portfolio of products, called LiveU Connect, incorporating the full-range of LiveU's solutions which includes smaller packs, external antennas, smartphone and laptop apps, and its next-generation central management system, LiveU Central, in one single multi-layered, multi-faceted live video ecosystem. We are excited to bring these proven and talented veterans to our ranks and put all these new products in our customers' hands. Our new hires will continue to work closely with our broadcast customers in bringing them the best video acquisition workflows and solutions, beginning with a nationwide roadshow that kicks-off in NYC in October."
