SAN DIEGO (December 15, 2009)—Sorenson Media today announced that it is expanding its workforce across the board to fulfill the strong market demand it has received for its high-quality Internet video solutions. To fuel its growth and to continue creating innovative solutions for the flourishing Internet video industry, Charles Sismondo has been promoted to vice president of engineering and the company will be bringing on additional engineering, marketing and sales personnel.
“During 2009 we saw outstanding growth among our market-leading video solutions. In 2010 we expect to see further accelerated adoption of our services, and overall demand will continue to increase across the industry,” said Peter Csathy, president and CEO of Sorenson Media. “With the addition of Charles to our executive team and more growth underway across the organization, we will maintain our position as a pioneer in the industry by providing our customers the highest-quality and most innovative tools for publishing video online. Significant developments are on the horizon, the need for high-quality differentiated video solutions is intense, and Sorenson Media is uniquely positioned to meet that demand head on.”
Sismondo joined the company just over a year ago and lead the team that developed the Sorenson 360 online video platform and assisted in the creation of the new user interface of Sorenson Squeeze 6, released last month. He specializes in end-to-end software architecture and has worked on technology ranging from desktop applications to database systems. Prior to joining Sorenson Media, Sismondo held positions at Hewlett Packard, mp3.com and EyeSpot.
