Virtual production and XR system sales growth fuels expansion
Mo-Sys Engineering (www.mo-sys.com), world leader in virtual production and image robotics, announced today the appointment of Tanner Woodward as Sales Director, West Coast US.
Arriving at Mo-Sys with extensive industry experience, Woodward joins from RED Digital Cinema, where he spent five years managing existing channel partners and establishing new dealer networks, as well as creating the corporate creative vertical. Working with a wide variety of creatives, from small content creators to large scale live and in-studio production teams, Woodward built on his previous work as a camera operator and systems workflow manager for live events, specializing in speed, reliability, and efficiency all the way through from pre- to post-production.
“I am extremely grateful and excited for this opportunity with Mo-Sys,” said Woodward. “The one thing I’ve learned in my time working with creatives, is that the most valuable tools are those built to empower creativity while making life easier and more efficient. Mo-Sys creates such innovative tools and solutions, and I couldn’t be more honored to be part of this team.”
Part of an expansion plan on the US West Coast, Woodward’s appointment reflects an ongoing investment in the LA sales and support team, which has doubled in recent months, and precedes the imminent announcement of the opening of the Mo-Sys LA office.
This news follows the earlier appointing of Mike Grieve as Commercial Director and he brings with him extensive industry experience across production and post-production, most recently in virtual production having held CCO roles at Ncam Technologies and The Future Group.
“Mo-Sys has such an incredible range of yet-to-be released virtual and remote production products, combined with significant plans in image robotics, that it represented an irresistible opportunity” Grieve said. “Growth last year verified the potential the company has, but 2021 looks even more promising, so it was an easy decision to join the Mo-Sys leadership team.”
Boasting 25 years’ experience in virtual technologies, Grieve’s role is to expand Mo-Sys’ market share of virtual production, remote production, and image robotics.
Michael Geissler, CEO Mo-Sys commented, “We welcome Tanner and Mike to Mo-Sys when we are seeing significant expansion, directly related to the increase in demand for virtual and remote production technologies. We are expanding our amazing team for the future and, with pros like Tanner and Mike onboard, I know we are in safe hands.”
Tanner and Mike will be attending the ASC Awards on Sunday 18th, 7pm BST, where they will be previewing an exciting and unique focusing technology for LED volume use, which will be officially announced and released the following week.
