Minneapolis, June 20th, 2017 – Qumu (NASDAQ: QUMU), a leader in enterprise video, announced the hiring of technology and software as a service (SaaS) industry executive Eric Rudolf to guide the next phase of the company’s marketing strategy. As Vice President of Marketing, Rudolf will work with sales and channel development teams to accelerate the growth of Qumu’s already market-leading list of Fortune 1000 clients.
“Eric brings deep experience marketing SaaS and other technologies in key vertical industries where video is growing,” said Vern Hanzlik, President and CEO of Qumu. “His addition to the executive team will help us amplify Qumu’s trusted brand and expand our global sales and partner channels.”
Rudolf’s background includes over 20 years of enterprise marketing experience with a variety of technologies including education, manufacturing, supply chain, professional development, e-commerce and automotive.
