Brice joins the company with deep technical knowledge and extensive experience in growing international operations. As vice president, EMEA, his responsibilities will include further strengthening of Haivision’s presence across key markets.
“Richard has a valuable understanding of technical issues, as well as a unique ability to leverage this knowledge in opening up and expanding new markets,” said Mirko Wicha, president and CEO of Haivision Network Video. “We’re very pleased to welcome him to the Haivision management team and to be working together toward even greater success in the EMEA region.”
Prior to joining Haivision, Brice spent 10 years with Miranda Technologies, most recently as senior vice president of U.S. sales. He earlier served as the company’s managing director, Europe, in London and as president of Miranda Asia, based in Hong Kong. Brice tripled the company’s European operations between 2001 and 2006 while steadily increasing profitability, and he was part of the senior management team during Miranda’s IPO in late 2005.
Before working with Miranda, Brice was the commercial director of Oxtel plc in the U.K. He has been a visiting fellow of Oxford Brookes University in the electronic engineering department and is a member of SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) and the Audio Engineering Society (AES). He is an author, a successful composer and recording artist, and a sound engineer. Brice earned his bachelor of arts (Hons) from the University of Bradford.
