Telestream ??s Dan Castles Retires. Company Appoints Scott Puopolo as CEO
October 24, 2017 -- Nevada City, California, 24 October 2017 ‚?? Telestream, a global leader in file-based media workflow orchestration, media streaming and delivery technologies, today announced that its CEO and one of the company‚??s original founders, Dan Castles, is retiring. Ex-Cisco executive Scott Puopolo will take over the position, effective immediately. Under Castles‚?? 20-year leadership, Telestream has enjoyed two successful exits, consistent year-on-year revenue growth, and strong profitability. Today, the company has become the recognized leader in enterprise-class video transcoding, quality assurance, and workflow solutions, addressing the numerous video format and device incompatibilities and service disruptions encountered when delivering video over any network. With the recent acquisition of IneoQuest, a leader in video quality monitoring and analytics solutions for content distribution, Telestream is uniquely positioned to enable customers to deliver the highest possible video quality to their viewers, on any device. ‚??Knowing the right time to retire is not easy,‚?? said Castles. ‚??However, I am confident that Scott is the right man to take this business to the next level. We have achieved a lot over the last 20 years, growing from a small team of 11 to over 400 bright and dedicated employees all over the world. I look forward to working with Scott, the board and the rest of the executive team on a transition which ensures that the next 20 years are our most successful ever.‚??
