As for promotions, Karoline Storbråten has been promoted to regional sales manager for Southern Europe.

Another Pixotope veteran, Joachim Ringstad celebrates his fifth year in the company and is now Pixotope’s regional sales manager for the Nordics and Benelux. Ringstad’s journey at The Future Group began in 2016 as the software’s Information Technology Manager. Today, he spearheads the expansion of its customer base and the achievement of sales targets for territories including Sweden, Denmark and the company’s home, Norway.
Ringstad comments, “Having had first-hand experience in the implementation of Pixotope in studios and at events since the beginning has given me valuable insight to take the lead on implementing strategies to accelerate the company’s growth in Northern Europe. I’m thrilled with the opportunity to help push the business forward.”
Marcus B. Brodersen, CEO of The Future Group, comments on the recent growth: “Virtual production solutions have certainly seen a huge increase in popularity, particularly due to the onset of the pandemic, and growing demand will continue to disrupt traditional content creation and delivery. Our latest additions and promotions within the team enhance Pixotope’s sales capabilities and customer delivery in the highly competitive virtual production marketplace, and they will help us navigate the next stage in our breakthrough of this increasingly evolving market segment”.
