Vizrt Group, the global leader in software for live video production, announces today the hiring of Jenny Isaksson as the Director of Channel Development as the company focuses on additional investment and support for its channel partners and customers. 

Isaksson brings several years of experience and a depth of knowledge to Vizrt Group. She previously held roles at Nordic Capital as an Operations Manager where she was focused on channel strategy, commercial excellence, value creation planning, and portfolio management, and at Bain and Company as a manager across growth strategy, financial planning, customer satisfaction, change management, commercial due diligence, and more. 

Isaksson will work alongside the recently appointed Channel Sales leadership team which includes Paul Dobbs (APAC), Thomas Thal (EMEA), and Ed Holland (AMECS) who are focused on customer relations and growing and developing their respective regions. Together with the leadership team, Isaksson will create a comprehensive channel strategy across the territories to ensure our channel partners are equipped with the best experience alongside the best technology to support Vizrt Group’s global end users and customers.  

“Half of Vizrt Group business is conducted in collaboration with our valued partners. Our appointment of a strong channel leadership, alongside the addition of Jenny, demonstrates our focus on expanding and growing our joint channel business. Her expertise allows us to take our existing strategy to new heights, leveraging untapped opportunities and establishing even stronger alliances with the channel and our customers,” states Daniel Nergård, Chief Revenue Officer, Vizrt Group. 

“Our partner ecosystem is key to our customer’s success and ours. Our focus is to continue to deepen our relationships with our partners through our channel program, no matter what vertical, and continue to support them in the best way possible with the full Vizrt Group product portfolio. We go to market with a strong offering of both proAV and broadcast customers from a single streamer or a world-class broadcaster. These industries are intersecting, and we are uniquely positioned to serve a wide range of customer needs,” says Jenny Isaksson, Director of Channel Development, Vizrt Group. 

Vizrt recently announced its formal partner program and expansion of certification and training for its partners, as well as Vizrt Group channel partners, to gain access to the full Vizrt Group portfolio offering new solutions and technologies to customers and end users. 

“We bring more value to our customers through a robust partner ecosystem, and by introducing a new certification program of Vizrt products, we offer our partners an opportunity to grow their business with us, and for our customers to be even better served from our portfolio,” concludes Nergård.
