Friday, July 17, 2020 | Comments

The Qumu board of directors appointed TJ Kennedy president and CEO. Kennedy will succeed Vern Hanzlik, who stepped down as president and CEO and as a director of the company to pursue other interests.

Qumu provides a platform to create, manage, secure, distribute and measure the success of live and on-demand video for enterprises.

“On behalf of the board of directors, we would like to thank Vern for his service and invaluable contributions to Qumu’s best-in-class software platform, which has become the backbone of the ‘new normal’ for video communications within our Global 2000 customer base,” said Qumu Chairman Neil E. Cox. “Vern has transformed Qumu’s software platform into what it is today: an award winning, globally recognized, end-to-end solution for securely creating, managing and delivering live and on demand video across any organization at scale. We wish Vern all the best in his future pursuits.”

Cox is a board member of the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), serving as chairman of the technology committee. Kennedy is the former president of FirstNet.

“I am excited to join the Qumu team at such an inflection point in the enterprise video space,” Kennedy said. “I look forward to helping organizations across the globe address the new normal for their employees as well as facilitating the paradigm shift happening with video communication in companies worldwide.”

Since he left FirstNet, Kennedy was CEO and director of Allerio, a telemedicine platform as a service (PaaS) firm. He was also one of the founders and principals of The Public Safety Network, a company focused on communications technology solutions to meet the mission-critical needs of public safety. Kennedy is also executive director of the Public Safety Technology Alliance (PSTA).

Kennedy’s election to the Qumu board of directors will become effective concurrently with his appointment as CEO.
