SeaChange elevates Chris Klimmer to President to accelerate streaming and AdTech SaaS growth strategy

SeaChange International, Inc., a leading provider of video delivery, advertising, streaming platforms, and emerging FAST (Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV services) development, announces the promotion of Chris Klimmer, the Company’s current Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer, to the position of President, effective today, August 17, 2022.

During his tenure as Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer of the Company, Mr. Klimmer has been one of the leading architects of SeaChange’s enhanced focus on SaaS revenue within the Streaming and FAST markets, capturing the tailwinds of the era of video consumption on Connected TVs. Under his leadership, the Company will focus on leveraging its software engineering team and developers to create new software solutions that maximize video revenues for operators and content owners alike. SeaChange’s core competency in driving advertising revenues for Linear TV, streaming, and Connected TV platforms is expected to attract new customers and partners given the Company’s momentum.

“SeaChange posted 33% year-over-year revenue growth in our fiscal first quarter 2023, and is methodically moving towards sustainable and profitable growth,” said SeaChange’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Peter Aquino. “Most importantly, with Chris leading the way, SeaChange is accelerating our focus into higher growth segments of our industry. I am proud of our collective progress in innovating and creating new streaming experiences on FAST and Connected TV platforms that could lead to new intellectual property for SeaChange. Additionally, I am very excited to continue partnering with Chris, who combines strategic thinking with in-depth operational experience; and his industry expertise, international network, and understanding of the market landscape, have been integral in successfully putting SeaChange back on a growth trajectory.”

“I am incredibly proud and grateful to get the increased opportunity to lead SeaChange into this new chapter”, adds Mr. Klimmer. “With our world-class customer base, solidified financial performance, and state-of-the-art product portfolio, we have stepped up to support our customers with new and versatile video monetization strategies. I see significant opportunities for our Company based on our strategic direction and believe that we can create substantial value for our stockholders. This can be accomplished through a three dimensional growth strategy: (i) provide best in class customer support in our core business with our cable, telco, and satellite customers, (ii) build incremental recurring revenue streams through performance-based software solutions that drive ad revenues, and (iii) seek out strategic partnerships to accelerate growth. Execution of this vision is made possible by our pool of experienced business development, sales, and engineering talent across the Company. We are extremely well-equipped to dramatically expand our current market share in the growing global video streaming and advertising markets.”

Mr. Klimmer will be a Section 16 Executive Officer of SeaChange, as Mr. Aquino passes the President title to Mr. Klimmer in conjunction with Mr. Aquino’s additional responsibilities as Chairman of the Board, as well as remaining the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. Globe Newswire
