Enterprise Video Communications Leader Opens New Offices in UK and Appoints Brian Haynes as EMEA Director
Driven by increasing global demand for EVC, the Maidenhead office will expand Qumu’s well-established customer base throughout the European region. By leveraging the company’s proven sales model—which combines direct, indirect, OEM partners and service providers worldwide—the UK operations will focus on industries currently experiencing rapid uptick in enterprise video, including financial services, insurance, telecom, manufacturing and government.
"We have seen unprecedented growth in EVC worldwide," said Rod Bacon, CEO of Qumu. “Our expansion into Europe will enable us to more effectively meet this region’s increasing need for a complete software solution that centrally manages the video communications lifecycle.”
Haynes joins Qumu with more than two decades of experience building sales organizations and channels in the UK and across EMEA. Most recently, he served as director of Northern Europe for Wily Technology where he increased revenues by 155 percent year over year. Prior to joining Wily, Haynes held several management positions at Legato, where his leadership grew annual revenues to $25M. Following EMC’s acquisition of Legato, Haynes played a fundamental role in integrating Legato’s UK business with EMC’s other storage software business, and led the operation to reach record quarters in 2004 and 2005.
“I’m thrilled to join an organization that offers market leading products with such clear differentiation and unique features,” said Brian Haynes, Director of EMEA of Qumu. “I look forward to growing Qumu’s business in Europe and helping new customers realize the benefits of enterprise video.”
