Publish date:

Boston, MA - May 22, 2018 - EditShare, a technology leader in intelligent scale-out storage, automated QC and media management solutions, welcomes new team members Jason Quast to the territory sales director position for Southeast U.S. and Dave Spraker for the territory sales director role for Northwest U.S. and British Columbia, Canada. They join Jeff Barnes and Grant Carroll, who have moved into new territory sales director positions for the Southwest, U.S., and Northeast, U.S. respectively, further strengthening EditShare's geographic coverage for sales and support across North America.

“While today’s IT-based media workflows provide immense efficiencies for production and post-production, as well as flexibility in terms of collaboration and remote access, they also pose challenges for the broadcast, video and film community across important areas such as security and compliance,” says Andy Liebman, CEO, EditShare. “You need expert advice on building a workflow that lets you maximize remote talent and production efficiencies while also giving you protection against cyber theft and helping you avoid delivering shows that require costly technical revisions later. Jeff, Grant, Dave and Jason have years of experience and can provide the sound guidance facilities need when making an investment in their business whether it is migrating to UHD storage, setting up a secure remote workflow, leveraging the cloud cost-effectively or coming in line with new IMF delivery requirements.” All EditShare sales appointments are effective immediately.
