Green Hippo’s product specialist team has strengthened on both sides of the Atlantic with the appointments of Zep Mouris as Hippotizer Product Manager at its new London HQ and Nick Spencer as Product Specialist, based in Chicago.
The move comes as the company focuses on delivering enhancements to its range of real-time video manipulation products for the AV industries. It follows hot on the heels of a recent leadership change at Green Hippo, which saw the appointment of David March to Sales and Marketing Director and Ryan Brown to Operations and Product Director.
“Zep has been a cornerstone of software development since joining Green Hippo in 2013 and we’re thrilled that he now takes the role of Hippotizer Product Manager,” says March. “He has been instrumental in the design of many much-loved Hippotizer software innovations, including SHAPE, the advanced 3D mapping toolkit which integrates with all Hippotizer V4 Media Servers.
“We’ve worked alongside Nick on numerous projects over the years in his roles as freelance lighting and video programmer and witnessed his many talents. We welcome them both and look forward to rolling out developments for our end users born from their enthusiasm and skill.”
Nick Spencer graduated from Western Michigan University with a BFA in Theatre: Technical Production, before freelancing for five years in video for festivals, touring productions, films, corporate events and installations.
“I met and began working closely with Green Hippo during my time with design company Dunaway Designs,” says Spencer. “When this opportunity opened up, I was honoured that they thought of me for the role.”
Mouris comments: “I’m excited to be able to spearhead new product developments in my new role and look forward to discussing the needs and requirements with the Hippotizer community over the coming months.”
Ryan Brown, Operations and Product Director at Green Hippo welcomes both to their new roles: “Congratulations to Zep and Nick. We know they’ll be great assets to Green Hippo, both in maintaining those vital support functions for our users, and contributing to our ongoing product development. We’re looking forward to an exciting future with Zep and Nick on board.”
