In this role, he will be responsible for customer requirements capture, workflow definition, solutions sales and developing the company’s market proposition.
A respected solution architect, Wilkins has more than 30 years’ experience in the broadcast and media industry, defining and designing complex workflow projects and managing the process through to successful delivery.
