Ateliere Appoints Ryan Kido as CTO to Execute Next Phase of “Concept to Consumer” Vision
Ateliere Creative Technologies, an innovative cloud-native content supply chain and distribution platform, is fortifying its world-class leadership team and executing on its concept to consumer streaming service vision with the appointments of Ryan Kido as chief technology officer (CTO) and former CTO Arjun Ramamurthy as M&A Technical Advisor to the CEO, where he will continue to lend his expertise on mergers and acquisitions during its next phase of growth. The Ateliere streaming strategy centers around the need to consolidate fragmented workflows and technologies by creating the industry’s first cloud-native platform that manages the entire content journey – from concept to consumer – to support market demands.
“Ryan joins the team to help us execute on that concept-to-consumer vision with his formidable technical acumen, extensive industry experience, and proven track record of success,” says Ateliere CEO Dan Goman. “We’re looking forward to the conversations between Ryan and our customers on their media supply chain needs.”
Ateliere is laser-focused on improving the content packaging, distribution and viewing experience, as well as solving industry challenges including modernizing technology that has broken the current media supply chain. Ateliere Connect drives efficiency via the cloud through an end-to-end workflow platform. It automates content creation and QC, deduplicates content, and expands content distribution to more endpoints without compromising artistic intent.
“I’m excited to be joining Ateliere at this dynamic time for the company and the industry we service,” says Ryan Kido, CTO at Ateliere. “Ateliere has a standout platform powered by talented technology and product teams, which I look forward to being a part of advancing to meet current and future customer demands. Innovation is required to continue to meet the challenges ahead for the media supply chain and the industry broadly – driving innovation has been a focus of my career and it is a priority for Ateliere to serve its customers.”
In his new role, Ryan will lean on his extensive product experience, his alignment with Ateliere vision and proven track record of bringing ground-breaking solutions to market. Prior to joining Ateliere, Ryan was Senior Manager, Solution Architecture – Media & Entertainment at Amazon Web Services (AWS) where he led a team of Media Specialist Solution Architects delivering transformative workflows for customers across the Americas. Prior to that, he held technology leadership positions at some of the world’s most recognized companies including Microsoft, Walt Disney Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Ryan’s contributions to media supply chain technologies include two unique patents, the first of which serves as the foundational concept of supply chain platforms today by automating distribution workflows of digital content. The second enables capture of key time-based metadata in media assets to allow for automated modification and search in a media asset management system.
These appointments come on the heels of a massive growth year for Ateliere, rapidly propelling the company into the next phase of its business lifecycle. Recent customer wins, including Lionsgate and Vubiquity, underscore the company’s continued market adoption and ability to deliver seamless experiences for their customers.
