Telstra Broadcast Services has announced that Karen Clark will now lead its Asia Pacific business, in addition to her current role as Head of Australia and New Zealand.
With a background in software engineering, Clark served as Commercial Manager with Globecast Australia before its acquisition by Telstra and became Head of Sales (ANZ) with the newly expanded Telstra Broadcast Services. She was appointed Head of TBS for ANZ in 2021. She is also a Section Manager with the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers (SMPTE) – Australia Section.
Commenting on her latest appointment, Clark said, “Over the last few years, we’ve seen significant growth in our Australia/New Zealand business by offering a broader portfolio, including cloud-based playout, media content operations, remote production and online services. I’m really looking forward to bringing this capability to our media customers across the APAC region to complement our existing Media Networks business. Telstra continues to prioritise investment in APAC with the largest intra-lit Asia subsea cable network. We believe the combination of these inhouse assets with our suite of managed media services and professionals, will provide great value to the media and entertainment industry across the region.”
