“I’m also looking forward to offering clients and prospects the company’s zer0 friction approach to technology and business. Tag’s agile technology and simplified work processes make the user’s experience simple and positive, which aligns perfectly with my values. I’m happy to join the team that is bringing a zero friction approach to broadcast environments on a global scale.”
Joyce said: “Roy has built a track record of sales growth fuelled by integrity, building trust with customers and an understanding of complex media systems. We welcome him and his leadership to the Tag family as we expand our presence in both North America and the Latin American region.”
