London, UK – 15 May 2017 – Imagen, the leading Software-as-a-Service video management company, announced today that it has appointed Charlie Horrell as its new CEO, a move that strengthens its senior management team and highlights the ongoing ambition for growth in new markets.
Current CEO Tom Blake hands over the position after 6 years in charge, deciding to take a more ‘hands on’ role after successfully transforming a small Cambridge based software business into leading video management company Imagen.
With a career that has focussed on driving businesses within the digital, technology and media space, Charlie Horrell brings with him exceptional leadership and commercial experience, most recently as managing director of Diligent. The company achieved significant growth under his five-year direction and was acquired for $625m.
After a successful track record at a range of blue chip businesses in the UK, Europe and Asia, the appointment of Horrell aligns with Imagen’s ambition to be the leading video management solution for media companies as well as to introduce its services to the enterprise market.
Charlie Horrell said,
“The company is in great shape and enjoys a high reputation across sports and media businesses. I’m joining at a very exciting point in the company’s evolution - I’m looking forward to taking this great solution to a wider market. So many companies are struggling to streamline their video management operations and make more of their assets – Imagen is the must-have service to help them enhance their business communications."
The appointment follows a successful year which has established Imagen as the leading video management solution used by sports and media companies including the English Premier League, ATP Media, Endemol, BP, the British Film Institute and IMG to monetize and distribute their content.
