French media entrepreneurs Anthony Savelli and Vincent Benveniste have taken control of French media software solutions company Netia from former sole shareholder Globecast.

netia 2 11 1Jan 2017The pair made the acquisition through their Radio Act consulting and services agency, and say that they will aim to strengthen focus on customer experience and best practices in media IT.

Netia has spent the last few months broadening its portfolio, believing that the landscape of digital business communications is evolving at a rapid pace, and all businesses are finding it harder to manage, index and archive important information. It adds that most institutional and industrial organisations need to have at their disposal an increasing amount of critical data and information in video form. This means that for some firms indexing and archiving data are necessary to remain compliant with regulatory guidelines and procedures, while for others such capability helps them preserve their corporate identity, or take informed and strategic decisions.

With Radio Act, Savelli and Vincent Benveniste have over 25 years of experience in media IT and claim that they also have an ‘impressive and recognised’ track record in successfully transforming technology businesses in synergy with customers, partners and staff. “Netia has very talented people working with the best media professionals across the world,” Benveniste remarked. “We’re honoured to lead its development from here on as a customer focused, agile, creative and autonomous organisation.”

Added Netia CEO Thierry Gandilhon: “Having now private owners committed to our roots in the south of France and to our core business, will give us the autonomy to focus on a more efficient operation. Our teams have already started a dialogue with several customers and we are confident that they will benefit from this new set-up, particularly from a user experience and lifecycle management standpoints.”
