LONDON, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Videology— a leading video advertising platform for advertisers, agencies and publishers – today announced the expansion of its executive leadership team with newly-established global positions to serve its rapid international growth.
In response to worldwide customer momentum, Videology has deepened investments and leadership across global markets with the appointment of a Managing Director in EMEA, a Senior Vice President for a new Global Accounts business unit, and with the creation of a new position, Head of Global TV Strategies, in line with growing, international appetite for addressable media in the broadcast sector.

"We're ramping up nearly every part of our business to meet that global demand and are committed to providing these markets with experienced leadership and local resources."
With the need for addressable, multi-screen TV solutions being felt more keenly than ever, Videology is strengthening its infrastructure to better serve its growing TV customer base. An evangelist for the power of addressability to transform the media business, former UK Commercial Director, Rhys McLachlan, has been appointed to the new position of Head of Global TV Strategies.
