Broadway Systems Welcomes James J. Ackerman as Executive Chairman

Grand Rapids, Mich. – Broadway Systems, the leading provider of advertising management software for cable networks, announced that James J. Ackerman has joined the company as executive chairman, effective Sept. 3.

Ackerman has extensive executive experience leading software and advanced media companies. As president and CEO of Documentary Channel, he led the company into sustainable profitability that resulted in the sale of the company to Participant Media in July 2012. Previously, during his tenure as president and CEO of OpenTV Corp., he led the company through a change in control ownership, the acquisition and integration of two publically traded competitors, and the transition of the company from a pure software vendor to a leading provider of advanced interactive television technologies, applications, and services.

While serving as CEO of British Interactive Broadcasting, Ackerman was responsible for the launch of the world’s first comprehensive interactive television service as part of Sky Digital. He also served as managing director of Sky Ventures, vice president of international business development at A&E Television Networks, vice president of program development for Hearst Entertainment, director of original programming for The Family Channel, and account supervisor at Grey Advertising.

“We are thrilled to have James join the board of Broadway Systems and to assume the position of executive chairman,” said Chris Noe, board director of Broadway Systems. “He brings an intimate knowledge of Broadway’s cable network customers and an outstanding track record in media technology. We are very excited he is assuming the leadership role of our company, and confident he will extend Broadway’s current leadership position.”

“Broadway has experienced excellent growth over the past several years, offers a remarkable end-to-end advertising management platform, and is bolstered by a team that delivers great results for our clients,” Ackerman said. “The cable television landscape is changing rapidly, and I look forward to helping Broadway respond to these changes with innovative, best of breed technologies and services. Today, Broadway has an outstanding solution designed to help our clients more effectively and efficiently manage their advertising proposal and deal management needs, as well as the central nervous system needed to traffic any cable TV network.”

Ackerman is based in Beverly Hills, Calif., and can be contacted at (310) 844-8953 or via e-mail at james.ackerman@broadwaysystems.com.
