David Scott, Stephen Kelly, and Oliver Parker Bolster Chyron’s EMEA Footprint, Offer Increased Sales and Product Support

LONDON — June 21, 2011 — Chyron today announced three new appointments for the company’s expanding London office. Industry veterans David Scott and Stephen Kelly join Chyron as EMEA regional sales directors, and Oliver Parker has been appointed as the company’s new EMEA product and demonstration specialist. All three positions will be based at the company’s Chiswick office, headed by Chyron’s Vice President of EMEA Sales, Paul Glasgow.

“It’s a real pleasure to welcome David, Stephen, and Oliver to the London office where they will focus on establishing new customer relationships and delivering our industry-leading broadcast graphics solutions to the EMEA markets,” said Michael Wellesley-Wesley, Chyron president and CEO. “The variety, breadth, and depth of experience they bring to our EMEA team — with more than 55 years of combined experience — will be invaluable in allowing us to identify and implement appropriate strategies for broadcasters across this dynamic market.”

David Scott will be principally responsible for Chyron sales in Russia and the Nordic countries. Scott joins Chyron after serving as senior broadcast enterprise account manager for Avid(R) Technology, where he was responsible for major successes with broadcasters such as the BBC, Red Bee Media, C4, and ITV. Prior to Avid, Scott was a broadcast regional sales manager for Pinnacle Systems and held senior roles at both Philips/BTS and Sony.

In his new role at Chyron, Stephen Kelly will be responsible for major markets including Southern and Western Europe. Prior to Chyron, Kelly served as enterprise and key accounts sales manager at Avid Technology. While at Avid, his primary responsibilities focused on new business development and expansion of sales across Northern Europe including key accounts like Sky, RTE, NBC, Reuters, and Peel Media. Previously, Kelly served in senior sales roles with Latens Systems, OmniBus, Nagravision/Lysis, and Snell & Wilcox.

As EMEA Product and Demonstration Specialist at Chyron, Parker will provide training and support across the region. Parker joins Chyron from BSkyB, where he worked as a live studio graphics operator. At BSkyB, Parker’s role included live, real-time graphics output in both studio and OB environments for Sky Sports News and other BSkyB programming and live events.
