LOS ANGELES – (September 14, 2018) – BeBop Technology, provider of robust and secure platforms and solutions for moving workflows to the cloud, announced today that leading ICT and media industry executive Vince Pizzica has been named non–executive Chairman.
“BeBop’s growth, our vision of integrating the cloud with artificial intelligence and blockchain, and a burgeoning wave of digital content expansion have made it apparent that we need a widely respected strategic visionary to join the team from a more global perspective,” said Bruce Long, CEO & co-founder of BeBop Technology. “We are honored my friend and comrade of many years, Vince Pizzica, is helping BeBop at this critical juncture for both our company and the industry.”
Throughout his career, Pizzica developed and displayed strong expertise in translating strategy into operational plans and actions, technology management, and the commercialization of innovation. As BeBop Technology’s Chairman he will focus on global initiatives, strategic alliances, and expansion around key industry-wide trends, including artificial intelligence and blockchain.
“One of the things that impressed me most about BeBop is its team, which is a remarkable fusion of Media & Entertainment industry veterans and cloud technology experts, and I’m thrilled to work with them to reinforce the incredible energy and momentum in the company,” said Pizzica. “I’ve spent my career at the intersection of technology and entertainment, and I’m excited to help BeBop at this critical time where new technology is having a transformative impact on production, post-production, distribution, and consumption of media.”
Pizzica most recently served as Technicolor’s Senior EVP in charge of Corporate Development, where he oversaw the strategy and M&A activities for global expansion for the world’s largest post-production company, as well as Technicolor’s Technology business. Over his ten years working with Technicolor’s CEO, his leadership transformed the company from its legacy origins as Thomson to its position as the global innovator in Media & Entertainment solutions. Prior to joining Technicolor in 2008, Pizzica held senior technology roles at French telecommunications company Alcatel-Lucent and Telstra.
