MELVILLE, N.Y. — Sept. 7, 2023 — Chyron today announced the appointment of Alain Polgar as the company’s senior vice president of sales for the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions. With decades of experience in senior roles across the broadcast media, technology, and streaming market ecosystem, Polgar comes to this position prepared to lead customer-centric growth and guide the Chyron team in elevating customer satisfaction throughout key markets.

“Chyron has a fantastic brand and an exciting solution portfolio that has been growing and evolving to address the changing demands of users, who themselves face transformational times,” said Polgar. “With changes in content consumption, business models, and technology itself, all happening at once, customers need value beyond the solution; they need a guide that can help them navigate disruption and find their own path to success. I look forward to working with my colleagues across Chyron to ensure we’re bringing this high level of value to customers across the EMEA and APAC regions.”

Over his 30-year career, Polgar has worked with technology vendors, service companies, system integrators, and streaming and content sales businesses, developing a robust understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing these varied players within a rapidly evolving marketplace. He most recently served as head of business development at Pantaflix Technologies and as managing director at mediaSTRAT, where he guided firms in the broadcast media industry looking to expand into new markets and geographies while strengthening their sales organizations and processes.

Polgar earlier served as director of sales development at Red Bee Media, director of sales DVS EMEA and APAC at Rohde & Schwarz, vice president of international sales at Ascent Media, director of sales EMEA at Pinnacle Systems, vice president of sales and marketing at FAST Multimedia, and managing director of Thomson Broadcast Systems.

“Alain is a widely respected and highly esteemed leader known throughout the industry for his thoughtful approach to change, particularly under pressure from disruptive technologies and business models,” said Mike Truex, President at Chyron. “As we look at how we can more fully support current and future customers in managing their evolving operating model needs, he is an invaluable resource. With remarkable expertise across business, technology, and strategy, Alain offers a uniquely rich perspective on the broadcast and media landscapes that will benefit Chyron teams around the world and, even more importantly, the markets and customers they serve.”
