Ryan Brown and David March take on new directorship roles
UK - Green Hippo has announced that David March and Ryan Brown are to take on new directorship roles at the company.
Meanwhile, business unit director and former CEO Emma Marlow is to leave the company after almost seven years at the helm. During her stint, Marlow expanded the company’s international operations and oversaw the 2018 acquisition of the company by US-based Spitfire Creative Technologies.
The company says in a statement: “Now that Marlow has successfully overseen the integration of Green Hippo into the Spitfire group of specialist AV brands, she will not be directly replaced. Instead, her responsibilities are being split across new roles shared by staff across the family of companies.”
David March, a 30-year veteran of the entertainment lighting and video market, expands the sales and marketing role he took on last year, with his promotion to sales and marketing director. March will work alongside Ryan Brown, previously product manager, who is now appointed operations and product director. Both will report to Denise Nemchev, president and CEO of Spitfire Creative Technologies, and be based in Green Hippo’s new London office, in Camden.
“I’m thrilled to take on this new role and with Ryan’s help spearhead Green Hippo’s future at such an exciting time,” says March. “This is a landmark year for Green Hippo, as we strengthen our foundations and move into new territories. On behalf of everyone at Green Hippo, I’d like to say a massive thank you to Emma, who has been an inspirational and greatly-respected director. She has guided us to great things, and we, like so many in the industry, wish her all the very best in her next adventure.”
Ryan Brown adds: “It’s always been fantastic to be involved in Green Hippo’s product development, working with such amazing and talented people - colleagues and customers alike - and I look forward to the new challenges ahead in my expanded role. Like David, I’m also very grateful to Emma for everything she has done to bring us to this point, and I wish her every success in the future. Building and developing the team’s strengths has always been a major focus, in addition to developing industry-leading video playback solutions,” says March. “We’re entering our twentieth year with optimism and excitement.”
