“The Americas is a key market for Net Insight and while we have seen some great success over the past years, we are never satisfied,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “With this strong team on board I feel confident that we can achieve the high goals we have set for the company. With a solution portfolio that now includes the ScheduALL software suite, Internet contribution through the Nimbra VA series, Nimbra Media Gateway and Nimbra MSR; and live OTT through Sye, there is a real need to grow the sales team to ensure we are presenting solutions and informing customers and prospects about the benefits derived from implementing them.”
