Sohonet Appoints New Executive Director to Capitalise on Growing International Demand for Tapeless Workflow


London, 11 July, 2011: Sohonet, the leading expert in connectivity and data management for the media and entertainment industry, is delighted to announce the Board appointment of highly respected business leader, Margaret Craig, to help steer the company through an exciting period of rapid global expansion.


Margaret Craig has achieved a wealth of business leadership experience in the media technology space and has held executive positions in various parts of the digital supply chain. Her previous roles include COO of Ascent Media Network Services, CEO of Leitch Technology, and President of Snell & Wilcox Inc.


Dave Scammell, CEO, Sohonet, said: “Margaret’s commercial savvy and operational expertise regarding file-based workflows and cross-platform distribution systems are second to none.  She is a key thought-leader and respected strategist within the IT media industry and we are pleased to have her on board to help us take full advantage of increasing global demand for our solutions and services.”


“Sohonet is perfectly positioned to capitalise on the media industry’s continuing move towards digital workflows and distributed operations,” comments Craig.


“The company is the only global expert in connectivity and data management for the media and entertainment industry. Indeed, media businesses that are not part of its rapidly growing Sohonet Media Network are increasingly finding themselves at a competitive disadvantage for not being part of the club. I am very much looking forward to working with Sohonet to build on its well-established global reputation as it continues to expand and offer a range of new, sought-after products and services.”
