Joining Grabyo in 2016, Harry built up a strong network and experience with innovative broadcasters and content owners as a Junior Sales Manager. Over the four years Harry rapidly progressed within the company, leading to Head of Sales for EMEA, overseeing outbound sales, exceptional client-service and creating successful market growth strategy.

Having worked with him closely through our partners, Grabyo, we know him well and have a strong understanding of his sales and relationship-building acumen. Our target for 2021 is to not only consolidate current markets, but to widen our footprint within growing broadcast and digital content sectors that require tools to create audience-led content that captivate viewers across multiple platforms.
