SCA Innovation Director – Audio on Demand, Matt Saraceni, said: We’re delighted to welcome someone of Mitch’s calibre into the SCA Digital Product team. In the audio-on-demand world Mitch has famously connected publishers and producers to the best tech, so we’re thrilled that he’s picked our strategy as a winner. I’m keen to learn from his experience talking to radio stations around the world as we continue to take LiSTNR and our start-up investments to the next level.”
Commenting on his new role, Secrett said: “Having worked with numerous other radio networks around the world, I can confidently say that SCA is a global leader in the audio space, particularly when it comes to innovation.
