Nevion virtualisation

Nevion, a developer and provider of virtualised media production systems, announced that company founder Thomas Heinzer has been appointed as the CEO of Nevion. The appointment follows the departure of Geir Bryn-Jensen to pursue new projects. Nevion’s existing management team remains unchanged.

Thomas founded signal routing and transport systems provider Network Electronics in 1996, which became Nevion in 2007. He has been a driving force in growing the company from a small broadcast equipment start-up to a global leader in media transport and service management systems, which was eventually acquired by Sony in October 2020. He has been instrumental in the company’s M&A activities, and has most recently served in the management team as EVP Strategic Projects for Nevion.

“Nevion has a proud history of reinvention and is now working closely with parent company Sony to deliver the future of broadcast production,” Thomas said. “After all these years with the company, I remain excited about the industry we are in and what we do.

“Of course, I would like to acknowledge the great contribution of Geir Bryn-Jensen in shaping Nevion into the company it is now. I think I can speak for everyone in Nevion in wishing him the very best for the future. I look forward to leading Nevion in this exciting new phase of the company, with the support of the management team and the great people who work there.”
