Ira Goldfarb, Envivio’s SVP of global sales and services, is leaving the multiscreen video specialist next month.

The company revealed in an 8-K filed Wednesday that Goldfarb resigned his post at Envivio, effective Sept. 12, 2014.

Goldfarb joined Envivio in January 2013, coming on board about eight months after the company went public. His move to Envivio followed 18 years with video software and services company SeaChange International.

It was not immediately known whether Envivio had identified a temporary or permanent successor to Goldfarb, or where Goldfarb is heading next.

However, one of Goldfarb’s former long-time SeaChange colleges, Yvette Kanouff, left Cablevision Systems earlier this year to head up Cisco Systems’ Service Provider Video Software and Solutions (SPVSS) organization.

Envivio is scheduled to post second quarter results on Wednesday, Sept. 3. Envivio, which counts Comcast and Time Warner Cable as customers, posted a first quarter net loss of $4.5 million on revenues of $8.4 million.  On Thursday, Envivio announced that it had won a deal to provide cloud-based video multiscreen transcoding services for China’s Beijing  Gehua CATV Network Co. Ltd.
