New hires bring decades of experience to Bitcentral’s core business and FUEL divisions
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 16, 2021 — Bitcentral Inc., a well-known provider of efficient media workflows in the U.S. and Latin America, continues on a path of growth established last year by welcoming two new senior directors of sales, Bill Manfull and Jim Skupien.
Manfull brings more than 35 years of sales and sales management experience to the FUEL team, helping to promote Bitcentral’s specialized online video platform. He most recently held sales director positions with Vimeo, with a focus on strategic sales, and Brightcove, where he was responsible for the media segment. Manfull’s career has allowed him to work extensively in the rapidly growing OTT space, gaining critical industry expertise while guiding print and digital media companies through digital transformations toward a thriving future.
“Throughout his career, Bill has had a front-row seat to the incredible shifts within the digital media industry, and he’s gained a unique understanding of what publishers need and what content consumers want,” said Greg Morrow, general manager of Bitcentral’s FUEL team. “There’s great potential for us to reach more producers and creators who would benefit from FUEL, and Bill’s expertise and understanding of the market will be essential in introducing these prospective users to our best-in-class solution.”
Skupien will be applying his skills as a broadcast expert to work for Bitcentral’s FUEL and Core Broadcast Solutions. He has more than three decades of exposure with broadcast and production companies, manufacturers, and resellers, presenting and selling industry-leading technology solutions to ensure organizations kept pace in an everchanging industry. Throughout his career, Skupien has become a trusted adviser to technical teams at major media outlets across the country.
“Jim’s network and ability to build relationships with the most notable names in broadcast television and cable will make an immediate impact on our team as we continue to serve these organizations with Bitcentral’s cornerstone news production and management systems and our online video platform, FUEL,” said Kieran Clarke, Bitcentral’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We are a trusted partner powering the operations of thousands of news organizations, and Jim has the right combination of enthusiasm and technical insights to help us expand our services to new corners of the industry.”
