From hotline engineer to the Executive Circle. Episode 17 - Damien Montessuit, SVP, Regional Head, EMEA, MediaKind

From the humble beginnings of a hotline engineer to the Executive circle at Ericsson, Damien Montessuit has a fabulous story to tell and insight to share. Damien is currently the SVP, Regional Head EMEA for MediaKind, and has spent the last two decades working for two of the largest corporations in the world – Microsoft and Ericsson. His passion for the Content & Media industry, specifically video, is wonderful to hear. He also talks with great optimism about where video is currently positioned, and why despite challenges the industry has faced during the pandemic, there are huge growth opportunities emerging as video and streaming has become the epicentre of how we communicate. That he puts video and biotech in the same sentence as two of the key global industries right now, speaks volumes. When discussing his leadership style, you get the sense that you’d like to be in his team – he talks with passion and fondness of those who have helped him in his career and how he aims to do the same.
