Managed service solutions provider QuickPlay Media has set up a new office in Singapore, which will be managed by Tash Stamatelos, QuickPlay’s newly appointed VP of sales for the Asia Pacific region.

Wayne Purboo, president and CEO of QuickPlay Media, said: “There is a massive opportunity for QuickPlay’s cloud-based multiscreen services in Asia and we are excited to establish a home base for the region in Singapore.

“With more than 50%* of global multiscreen TV service subscribers, Asia is becoming an increasingly important market for our services. With a proven and seasoned leader like Tash driving our efforts in the region, we look forward to reaching new global milestones for QuickPlay in the coming months and years.”

Stamatelos has more than 27 years of experience managing international sales and operations and has spent the past 22 years working throughout Asia for both multinational and start-up organisations. He joins QuickPlay from VMWare, where he was most recently the cloud senior sales director – Asia Pacific and Japan.

“The proliferation of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, coupled with the end-user experience and expectation of content on any device, anywhere, any time, is propelling a change in how people consume products from their service provider,” said Stamatelos.

“A huge shift is upon us and the way telecommunication companies, cable operators and broadcasters address these new challenges, will ultimately define them and their bottom line. QuickPlay is poised to take advantage of these market dynamics and I look forward to playing a key role in the continued success of the company as the adoption of multiscreen services continues to skyrocket.”
