Video is the new language of business, globally. The businesses that learn to “speak” this new language by harnessing the innate data in video to communicate most effectively, will be the ones that thrive. AnyClip’s proprietary Visual Intelligence Technology converts latent video into smart video, powering a fully automated and integrated video management platform for Enterprise. Whether the objective is scaling new and existing audiences with external facing video that is targeted, searchable and personalized or driving productivity, connectivity and collaboration with internal video for the new hybrid workplace, AnyClip provides a holistic video solution.
“Companies in the DACH region, similar to our existing client base, are experiencing an exponential increase in video production and usage as a critical part of their daily business activities,” noted AnyClip President & CEO, Gil Becker. “As businesses struggle to keep up with the flow of information, we’re providing a turn-key solution for content organization, discovery and collaboration that not only addresses the demands of the marketplace today but is future-proofed for tomorrow.”
He added, “Michael brings a very deep understanding of how businesses operate in the region. That coupled with his strategic approach and vast SaaS experience make him the right executive to guide our expansion in DACH.”
Kummer joins AnyClip with on-the-ground experience in DACH ranging from selling complex software solutions, new product launches and building high-performing sales teams to fostering long-term partnerships, revenue generation and client development and acquisition. This includes serving as Senior Director of Sales, EMEA APAC, for Kaltura Inc.
Most recently, the bi-lingual executive (German and English) was DACH Sales Director for Munich-based Unit4 GmbH. There he oversaw the creation of the cloud computing software company’s go-to-market strategy. Previously, Kummer served as the Global Head of Sales and GM for moving image EVP GmbH.
