The Filter board is pleased to announce that it has appointed Damien Read as its new CEO effective from 5th October. Damien has over 20 years experience in digital TV having worked for many of Europe’s leading operators including BT, Sky, NOWTV, Virgin Media and Liberty Global. Over the years, he has been at the vanguard of product launches such as personal video recorders, video-on-demand, HD, OTT streaming platforms and broadband/ telephony services. Damien has worked mostly in senior commercial roles and was most recently at Sky as Director of Customer Marketing at NOWTV and then Director of Sky Store.
The board also expressed its enormous thanks to Neil Morris who is stepping down as the current CEO to pursue his own start-up. “Neil has taken The Filter to the next level where it is able to deploy many of its TV focused, data science solutions with clients in weeks.” Under Neil’s leadership, The Filter secured MGM’s US OTT service, Epix amongst others. Neil will remain with the business over the next few months.
