No matter what kind of success you’re having – and we’ve had plenty in recent years – it’s always smart to improve your odds. In Las Vegas this week for CES we’re doing just that, adding to our Quickplay team two major players whose expertise can accelerate our ability to create jackpots for our customers and ourselves.
Fresh off a year in which we simultaneously launched a wave of Tier 1 services, we’ve welcomed back Eric Goldstein as our Vice President, Business Development and Global Partnerships and have reeled in John R. Reigart III to support our sales and partnership activity. Both Eric and John will be on hand during our suite meetings at the Aria Resort and Casino Jan. 9-12.
Eric is no stranger to Quickplay. He helped to build out our first wave of global strategic partnerships as head of business development until mid 2022, when he became general manager of SimplePractice Learning, an innovative streaming continuing education service for behavioral health professionals . Earlier, Eric had spent more than 12 years at The Walt Disney Company, for which he was instrumental in the growth of the company’s digital entertainment and streaming video products and distribution.
John’s portfolio reads like a Who’s Who of media, entertainment and streaming brands. He held technology leadership positions with MTV Networks, Real Networks/Rhapsody and Amazon before driving business development and partnership successes with Comcast Technology Solutions, Verizon Media and Mux. We’ll be working closely with John and his Streaming Yarns Consulting LLC to accelerate the ability of streaming providers to leverage the technology, business and market benefits of the cloud-native, open Quickplay platform.
With the addition of Eric and John, our hot hand just got stronger than ever. Schedule a meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org with them – and the rest of the Quickplay team – next week at the Aria Resort to learn how we can help make your streaming brand a winner.
