Globecast has sold its entire interest in the company to French entrepreneurs
Globecast, a part of the Orange group, has sold all its shares in French media software solutions company Netia to two French media entrepreneurs, Anthony Savelli and Vincent Benveniste.
The acquisition was made via Radio Act SAS, their consulting and services agency.
Savelli and Vincent have more than 25 years of experience in media IT and have a track record of successfully transforming technology businesses.
Thierry Gandilhon, CEO of Netia, said, “Having private owners committed to our roots in the south of France and to our core business will give us the autonomy to focus on a more efficient operation. Our teams have already started a dialogue with several customers and we are confident that they will benefit from this new setup, particularly from the user experience and lifecycle management standpoints.”
“Netia has very talented people working with the best media professionals across the world. We’re honoured to lead its development from here on as a customer focussed, agile, creative and autonomous organisation,” said Benveniste, who is the president of Radio Act.
