Espial Hires Mahony

OTTAWA -- Espial® IPTV, the leading provider of IPTV middleware and applications, today announced the addition of VP Marketing Brian Mahony to the Espial management team. Mr. Mahony is a 15-year veteran of the telecom industry, most recently with Netcentrex, and will lead Espial’s marketing and product management organizations.

Mr. Mahony’s experience at VoIP application server leader Netcentrex was marked by rapid growth. During his tenure, he saw the company grow from about $10M to more than $50M and helped the company promote its pioneering triple play and IMS strategies. Netcentrex was acquired by Comverse Technology Inc. for approximately $180M in June of 2006.

Prior to Netcentrex, Mr. Mahony’s roles included VP Marketing and Business Development at Tundo Corporation, Director of Business Development and Strategy at Unisphere (acquired by Siemens and Juniper Networks for $740M), and Business Development Manager at Nortel. His consulting experience includes management of strategic projects at satellite service provider Loral-Orion, wireless service provider Nextel, and internet network provider BBN/Genuity.

“I have seen the telecom market mature from analog to digital to IP-based technologies,” said Mahony. “In this era of fierce competition between different types of service providers, IPTV is proving to be the key weapon in the triple and quad play wars that are upon us. I am excited to join the number one IPTV middleware company in the world.”
