Mike LaJoie, the former EVP and CTO of Time Warner Cable, sure is staying busy for a retired guy.
LaJoie, who retired from TWC at the end of 2014, has been appointed to the board of directors of multiscreen video tech company Envivio. That announcement came just more than a month after LaJoie was named chairman of Guavus, the San Mateo-based Big Data analytics company.
Envivio also announced that Kevin Dillon, a general partner with Atlantic Bridge, has resigned from the board.
Envivio makes video processing and transcoding products for multiscreen applications, including emerging 4K video services, and recently expanded its horizons with the launch of a virtual, cloud-based software-as-a-service video platform called “Nuage.” TWC is one of Envivio’s known U.S. MSO customers.
"Digitizing entertainment-quality video is a challenge that I have pursued for many years, LaJoie said in a statement. “This opportunity with Envivio will allow me to stay highly involved in that space. As the demand for quality improvements and enhanced functionality continues to expand, Envivio is well positioned to lead with innovative solutions and enhanced value creation. I am looking forward to working with the team."
"The board, management team and I wholeheartedly welcome Mike to the Board of Directors. We expect Mike to help accelerate our vision, contribute to our strategy, and deepen our relationships with cable operators and content owners, as we move aggressively into 2015," added Envivio chairman Terry D. Kramer.
