Thomas StanekerSVP Global Business Unit EMEA at KAON MEDIA
Thomas Staneker is a true veteran of the Broadband and Video industry. His DNA is built on experiences in fiber transmission, cable and DSL access, IPTV, DVBx and OTT. After 20 years in various positions at Alcatel, followed by 12 years at Deutsche Telekom, Thomas has joined Kaonmedia end of 2018 as SVP for the DACH region in EMEA. This kind of brings him back to his origins both from a technological and commercial point of view. Having seen both sides of the fence, he is now able to match needs of both vendors and service providers to create win-win business opportunities both in the TV and the Broadband industry. Before joining Kaonmedia, Thomas was heading the international TV shared service center for Deutsche Telekom in Budapest, aggregating engineers from 7 European countries for the development of common solutions. Having spent more than half of his career abroad, Thomas is a German engineer but feels more like a true European and a worldwide connected industry actor.
