Vizrt appoints Daniel Url as head of global product management
Vizrt has announced the appointment of Daniel Url as head of global product management, reporting to Michael Hallén, group chief executive officer and president.
Vizrt is a content-centric organisation with the stated purpose of helping the storytellers deliver more stories. Url was managing director and chief sales officer of Qvest Media for more than 11 years overseeing project sales, including installations of Vizrt products at Sky Sports Munich, ORF Vienna, Nine Network Sydney, and many others.
With a strong background in broadcast technology product development, production workflows, and sales, Url will ensure that the group’s brands, NewTek, Vizrt, and NDI, will bring to market innovations that continue to be customer-outcome focused.
On his new appointment, Url said: “I have been an admirer of Vizrt for many years and as a passionate believer in the power of software, IP, and cloud technology to change the way that the world shares its stories for the better. I cannot think of a better place to be.”
Url and the product management teams will work closely with the R&D functions led by Dr. Andrew Cross, president of R&D for Vizrt, forming the group’s product development capability. Combined, the pair will boost focus on delivering customer value by innovating at a product and experience level so that the Group can continue its focus on customer success.
Michael Hallén, group chief executive officer and president, added: “I’m delighted to be able to bring Daniel’s experience and capabilities into the Vizrt Group family. We have many very exciting plans for the future and strengthening our product development function in a way that will help us serve our customers, and their content better is central to this.”
