Ascent Media Appoints Sales And Business Development Europe Manager

Ascent Media Networks Services has announced that Andrew Johnston has been appointed Vice President Sales and Business Development in Europe. Johnston brings over 20 years experience in the television industry including senior executive positions at leading TV post production and computer games industry vendors.
"Our playout business is very much on the up and to build on this we have made a significant investment this year in our new European Transmission Centre," said Roger Henderson, Managing Director of Ascent Media's content distribution business in Europe. "This role demands a candidate with a clear understanding of the market and experience of developing a comprehensive sales strategy as well as maintaining a sales pipeline. Johnston's experience and skills match this perfectly."
Before joining Ascent Media Johnston worked as head of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Flimlight, the high-end manufacturer of film scanning, and colour grading technology from 2004. From 1997-2003 he held management roles at consultancy Clarity Branding, at 3D animation software company Kaydara Inc, and at media asset management developer Unique ID in the UK. Johnston also worked in Montreal Canada from 1994 to 1996 heading up the marketing teams at Discreet Logic and then Jazz Media Network.
Commenting on his new role Andrew Johnston said: "My experience over the past 20 years at some of the broadcast industry's most cutting-edge vendors means I bring detailed knowledge of how our industry works and the central role that content distribution occupies. I am looking forward to working with the world class team at Ascent Media to maintain and grow their exceptional reputation and client base in the playout sector."
In his new role, Johnston reports to Roger Henderson, and is based at the team's Central London offices in Stephen Street.
