Airbeem has announced that Steve Plunkett has joined its Board of Directors to advise the company on its technical growth and strategy. Airbeem has also appointed Tim Clement to the role of VP Sales.

With over two decades of experience in the media, telecoms and internet industries, Steve has a strong track record of leading the development of new products, services and platforms. Most recently, Steve Plunkett was the CTO at Ericsson Broadcast & Media, formerly Red Bee Media, where he led the technology and data strategy, platform development, R&D, industry engagement, IPR management and innovation globally. He was instrumental throughout the sale of Red Bee Media to Ericsson and integration into the wider Ericsson group, leading the development on a number of media management and delivery products and services. Prior to this, he was Chief Architect for the Future Solutions Group in Motorola EMEA, where he was responsible for identifying, developing and monetising new and emerging technologies, products and solutions for Motorola. He has also held several other senior positions at multi-nationals including Citibank, JP Morgan, and Mercedes Benz.

Tim Clement joins Airbeem from Comcast Technology Solutions, where he was the Director of Customer Success for international customers helping them build their OTT services. In this role he built strong ties with key clients across EMEA. Prior to CTS, Tim was the Director of Sales Engineering for Ooyala where he was instrumental in helping customers build and implement their OTT platforms using Ooyala’s infrastructure.

Steve Hardman, CEO, said: "One of Airbeem’s key strengths is our consultative approach to working with content owners to build and monetise their OTT platform using our off-the-shelf technology. Both Steve and Tim bring real industry knowledge helping our clients plan and devise OTT services that will attract and keep audiences engaged in their service. Steve’s insight into future technology developments, particularly around the delivery of OTT content, will be invaluable to Airbeem. Tim has worked with hundreds of content owners building OTT services and his consultative approach will be a real asset to content owners who want to use our products."
