Green Hippo has announced that Ashley Hazlett has been appointed Inside Sales Representative at Green Hippo US, and Warren Keyes joins as Development Manager for the Green Hippo UK team.
Ashley Hazlett brings the hands-on experience of Green Hippo, including media server QC responsibilities at VER. This move marks the next step on a career path that originally started with Green Hippo – the media server Ashley first learned on was a Hippotizer V3.
“The first media server I ever learned on was a V3 Hippo. After working closely with the Green Hippo team and products over the years, I am thrilled to get the opportunity to represent a company and product I truly enjoy. The AV/Video industry is such a great sector – I love encountering all the different people with different skill sets, personalities, and creative minds. Knowledgeable people that over the years, were willing to teach me anything I didn’t know. I enjoy learning something new and evolving every day within this industry.”
Warren Keyes brings 16 years of professional programming experience to his new role at Green Hippo, including most recently, working with Microsoft in Seattle as an Engineering Manager covering Xbox and AR/VR. Warren has also worked at Skype and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, as well as Engineering Management roles at game companies, big and small.
“This role is the ideal opportunity for me to use the skills that I have developed over many enjoyable years at the likes of Microsoft and Skype. I am excited to be joining Green Hippo and looking forward to help accelerate our product development.”
Jim Laschinger, Commercial Director, US said: “Ashley is Green Hippo to the core – her first experience with media servers was Hippotizer, so it’s terrific to add her insight and enthusiasm to our US team.”
Emma Marlow, Business Unit Director at Green Hippo said: “Warren’s global and technology experience with high-performing development teams will bring strong skills in his role as Development Manager and we are delighted to welcome him to the London office.”
