Sohonet has appointed Damien Carroll to the newly created role of commercial director.

Carroll, who previously worked for Telecine and Ascent Media Group as senior vice president of finance and commercial affairs, will focus on expanding Sohonet’s footprint across Europe. 

Sohonet chief executive Dave Scammell said: “Damien has extensive experience of media industry trends and defining business context for TV channel playout, content management and distribution, digital media supply chain and post production services.

“With supply chains becoming increasingly modularised due to advances in IT, broadcasters, production companies and content owners are spending more time than ever before managing their supply chains.”
