We are proud to announce that Paul Goetz has joined the Brightcove executive team as senior vice president of sales for North America. Goetz, who will report to Brightcove president and chief operating officer, David Mendels, will help to scale our sales organization and drive customer acquisition activities across North America.
Goetz brings a wealth of management, sales and strategic experience to Brightcove from his successful 19-year tenure at EMC Corporation, and most recently at SAVVIS, where he was responsible for the company's sales and consulting group. At EMC, Goetz most recently served as vice president of global consulting and managed services and worked with many of EMC's top clients, built a highly productive global sales force and led the design of the services sales model for the company. Early in his career, Goetz quickly rose through the ranks at EMC, moving up through sales management, to leading sales for Switzerland, Portugal, Spain and Italy, and later serving as vice president for solutions and services marketing for the company.
