On 23 July 2019 Dazzl, a live multi-camera video solutions company, announced the appointment of APO Group CEO Lionel Reina to the company board. This appointment highlights Dazzl’s plans to increase its growth and gain more international recognition. Dazzl launched in 2016 and has since gone on to make their mark in the streaming world with Dazzl.tv, a video streaming platform that allows for the capturing, editing and distribution of live events simultaneously on multiple websites or platforms.
Dazzl.tv utilises immersive technology that allows multi-viewpoint content from drones, mobiles and other live sources, according to Dazzl. Dazzl.tv for the first time, claims Dazzl, allows live broadcast-quality content to be produced from any internet-enabled location through the use of a smartphone.
According to Dazzl, Reina will bring valuable knowledge and experience to his new role as an advisor. He has experience from holding roles in the industries of technology, media relations and business at an international level. Currently, Reina works with top publications and broadcasters in Africa and also around the globe. Prior to joining Dazzl, Reina was the CEO for the Middle East and Africa at Orange Business Services (OBS), the B2B division of French telecoms company Orange.
In addition to this, he was the Middle East Director in the Gulf region for Accenture. Reina is the former Vice President of the French Chamber of Commerce in Dubai, holding a position on the board from 2009 to 2012. During this time he was also the Founder and President of the French Executive Club of Dubai (“Le Club”).
“Lionel’s appointment reflects the value we place on his experience and knowledge. Uniquely, he bridges that crucial gap between technology and media. Lionel operates right at the heart of the international communications community, and we are thrilled that he will be able to help us as we look to bring our services to new audiences all over the world,” said Thierry Scozzesi, co-founder and CEO of Dazzl.
“What Dazzl are doing in the fields of social media and broadcasting is incredibly exciting. They are a young technology company providing new digital solutions that will revolutionize the way people consume information. As CEO of APO Group, I am in the privileged position of being able to help companies like Dazzl gain exposure. I believe they are exactly the type of organization that can complement our own portfolio in the years to come,” said Lionel Reina.
