Signiant Inc, a long-time market leader in intelligent file transfer, has created a new C-level executive role to support the company’s strategy of extending its cloud-native SaaS platform to meet emerging market needs. Capping off a record year as one of the fastest growing technology companies in media, Signiant has appointed industry veteran Kevin Scott as Chief Business Development Officer to lead strategic relationships with key partners and customers. Scott’s long, successful career in media has included leadership roles at DIRECTV and Deluxe. He most recently served as an advisor to many of the world’s top M&E companies on technology strategy.
“Signiant solutions play an increasingly central role in our customers’ businesses,” said Margaret Craig, CEO of Signiant. “Media companies have embraced our unique SaaS platform as they modernize their content supply chains, and we’re experiencing tremendous demand for new functionality above and beyond file transfer. The addition of an industry leader like Kevin will help us respond to the market pull and fulfil our vision for the SaaS platform. One impact of our recent innovations is that Signiant is increasingly drawn into forward-looking strategic dialogue with our customers. Kevin is the ideal person to engage with media executives in this way – he understands the industry both at the C-Suite level as well as at the hands-on implementation level.”
