He began his career in telecoms and audio, before taking up European sales roles spanning more than a decade with broadcast manufacturers Quantel and Snell & Wilcox.

Immediately prior to joining ES Broadcast, Roger spent more than four years as Elemental principal sales specialist at cloud services provider AWS. Here he worked at the heart of innovative cloud-based content solutions including cloud content distribution and OTT, live streaming and VOD delivery, in parallel with AWS’ wider storage, AI and ML (artificial intelligence and machine learning) and data analytics services.

He is well-versed in the entire content cycle from acquisition to delivery, with expertise in production, post production and publishing workflow solutions, including live production, edit, graphics, VFX, MAM, playout TX and OTT, VOD and live streaming technologies.
Over the last two decades he has helped clients navigate through multiple creative and technological innovations, including tape-to-file workflows, the introduction of OTT content delivery, and advancements from SD to HD to UHD, from baseband to IP and from on-premise to cloud.
