Vubiquity, which was acquired in 2018 by media and communications technology provider Amdocs, made two senior management appointments to solidify its relationships with North American studio clients.
The company, led by former Warner Brothers chief technology officer Darcy Antonellis, said John Smith had been promoted to senior vice president of studio sales in North America. Cheryl Frohlich joined the company as Vice President of Studio Sales. Frohlich will report to Smith and Smith will report to Raman Abrol, Managing Director and Commercial Director of Vubiquity and Amdocs Media.
“With over 20 years of industry experience, John is a highly respected leader whose in-depth knowledge of our business makes him ideal to guide our sales operations in North America. This promotion is recognition of his many innovative contributions to our company, ”said Abrol. He added that Frohlich brings “an impressive expertise in media, entertainment and sales to the team”.
Frohlich joins Vubiquity from Deluxe Entertainment Service Group, where she was Vice President of Global Client Strategy. At Deluxe and in a previous leadership role at Whip Media, she served clients in the OTT streaming space, including YouTube, Google, Facebook and Amazon, with a focus on post-production and localization.
Amdocs last week reported quarterly revenue of nearly $ 1.1 billion, beating Wall Street estimates and the company’s own projections. About 65% of the company’s revenue comes from North America, although the company is active in several other territories.
In addition to the financial results, Amdocs announced a partnership with T-Mobile USA in which it will provide hybrid cloud services. It has also entered into a managed services agreement with Charter Communications, a longtime broadband and pay-TV provider that is entering mobile telecommunications.
