Tony Page returns to Deltatre as EMEA president
Global sports media technology company Deltatre has reclaimed former employee Tony Page as president for EMEA. Page was previously managing director for Europe at Hawk-Eye Innovations, and prior to that was at Deltatre for 11 years, including heading up Deltatre’s broadcast graphics and results business in the UK.
Page has a strong history of driving innovation and sustained growth in the sports market for the world’s biggest sports brands. His focus will be on leading the growth of Deltatre’s European business with broadcasters, leagues, federations and multisport events.
His return follows a year of fast-paced global growth for Deltatre. The company acquired multi award-winning over the top (OTT) software company Massive Interactive, powered over one billion minutes of video and achieved a significant increase in market penetration in EMEA.
Page will replace Stefano Rigat as president, EMEA, who in turn will move into a new role within Deltatre as senior vice president of sales engineering.
Commenting on the new appointment, Deltatre CEO, Giampiero Rinaudo, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Tony back to the team. His previous work at Deltatre was instrumental in building out our European broadcast services business line, and I believe that this next chapter will be equally as impactful, particularly with his experience in working on the growing synergies between linear and digital. I’d also like to recognise Stefano for growing our EMEA business and look forward to seeing him bring his expertise to an important new role across the Deltatre Group.”
Page added: “I’m delighted to be appointed as president of EMEA at Deltatre, a company I have spent a significant part of my working life with, having previously worked my way through on-site operations, technology development, sales and management. Now having the opportunity to lead the business I know so well through the exciting digital transformation of sport, bringing new experiences and content to fans everywhere is a challenging and stimulating role.”
Rigat commented: “Tony is a fantastic addition to the team and I take great pleasure in welcoming him back into the Deltatre family. He brings a unique wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the team. I look forward to working with Tony and taking on the challenges that come with my new role as one of the leaders of Deltatre’s Global Sales Engineering department.”
At Hawk-Eye Innovations Page was responsible for delivering goal-line technology and video assistant referee (VAR) operations across Europe.
Page will be based out of Deltatre’s Wimbledon office.
