Commenting on Mr Dale's appointment, Tsukasa Sugawara, Chief Technology Officer and Board Member, said: "This is a significant time for Media Links in an environment that is experiencing a great deal of transition as broadcasters, telcos and manufacturers navigate the IP world. John brings strong leadership, market savvy and technology skills to drive the company forward along with a winning track record in product development, operations and fostering close customer relationships."

Dale added: "Media Links is built on a solid foundation of exceptional personnel talent and award-winning technology, and I am looking forward to leading the organization as we continue to develop our range of media over IP transport solutions, software and professional services."

John's career spans more than 30 years. He most recently served as Chief Marketing Officer and Member of the Media Links Board of Directors. He has held a number of executive and business development positions within the broadcast industry and Media Links, which he joined in 2005.
