Marquis Broadcast has promoted Paul Glasgow to managing director following the retirement of Chris Steele.

Glasgow joined Marquis in 2016, and has nearly three decades of management experience including senior roles at Sony, EMC Media Solutions, Avid Technology and ChyronHego.

Steele steps down after six years as managing director, and will continue to work with Marquis Broadcast in a consulting capacity.

Glasgow said his new role coincided with the roll out of new products and services at Marquis, which works with partner companies across editing and shared storage, archiving, media asset management and workflow automation, including suppliers such as Adobe, Apple and Avid.

Glasgow said: “Marquis began as a workflow consultancy and identified the need to achieve efficient interoperability across multi-vendor systems. The company has since built up a strong portfolio of media integration products designed for today’s fast-paced data-intensive media production and presentation environments.” These include the cloud-hosted Medway Engine Web Service (MEWS), Marquis Fotonflite and Marquis Delta Parking.

“I would like to thank Chris for his outstanding contribution to the growth and development of Marquis Broadcast throughout his six years as managing director,” said Marquis chairman Christoffer Kay. “He was also instrumental in the early decision to include cloud workflow into our product line which enables us to support an exceptionally high number of cloud platforms.”
