Before joining ChyronHego, Adams was vice president channel at EVS and served in senior sales-leadership roles at Quantel, Autodesk M&E, and Avid. His focus has been on live broadcast sports, news and entertainment production, second screen, fan engagement, graphics, and postproduction.

Weiser has held high-level leadership positions in global companies serving the media and entertainment market. Before coming to ChyronHego, he was the vice president of sales in the Americas and Asia-Pacific for The Vitec Group, where he oversaw a 40-person sales team and had sole responsibility for rebuilding the indirect sales organization and directing profits and losses, budgets, and expenses. He also spent four years as the vice president of sales and marketing for AJA Video. In the interim, he founded KDM Global, a consultancy that provided strategic insights and sales and marketing advice for the media and entertainment industry. As a consultant, Weiser assisted numerous companies in building and deploying comprehensive sales and marketing strategies and streamlining internal operations.
