The Cleeng US team is starting the second quarter out right with the addition of Luke Carriere as the Head of Cleeng US Business Development. It’s another step we're taking to strengthen our presence in the US.
Luke will be supporting our clients from the Cleeng’s NYC office, using his extensive experience as a business advisor for hundreds of entrepreneurs at prestigious universities across the U.S., Europe, Middle East, and Asia.
Further, Luke's activities will be focused on developing strong relationships with the existing and future partners to provide exceptional customer support to broadcasters, and to grow the organization's market share and team in the US.
Prior to Cleeng, Luke worked at Tinypass where he led the development of integrations with online video platforms. He supported thousands of online publishers, helping them to earn from selling their digital content directly to their viewers. He also addressed press associations, journalism classes, and hosted webinars on the topic of content monetization strategies.
We hired Luke not only because of his great education (he earned an MBA from Fordham University) or business acumen. Luke's enthusiasm and motivation convinced us that he would be an amazing addition to our driven team. As Luke put it:
I wanted to work with Cleeng, because of their focus on the niche market of video-on-demand and live-streamed events, which have high annual growth rates. I also admired the Cleeng brand's devotion to customer development and the technology's attention to security, and highly demanded features such as watermarking, video previews, and international currencies.
