Davies Will Leverage Experience in Sports Events to Provide Advanced Fan Engagement and Production Solutions to College and Pro Sports Venues
MELVILLE, N.Y. — May 19, 2021 — Chyron today announced the hiring of Nigel Davies as the company’s new venues account manager responsible for building and extending relationships with college and professional sports venues across North America. Davies will focus on increasing awareness and adoption of the Chyron PRIME Click Effects solution for stadium and in-venue production and fan engagement, as well as the broader PRIME Live Platform. He will report directly to Gregoire Rouyer, vice president, enterprise accounts, at Chyron.
“I am beyond excited to join Greg’s already stellar team at Chyron and to use my sports event experience to help customers push the boundaries of the live fan experience using Click Effects and Chyron’s other leading products,” said Davies. “I look forward to supporting Chyron’s current partners and growing pivotal new relationships in the North American market.”
Following his time as captain of the UCLA track and field team, Davies began his professional career at Relevent Sports Group and the 2013 International Champions Cup [ICC]. While with Relevent, Davies established client relationships with world-renowned, multibillion-dollar sports properties while driving digital growth, implementing ticket sales campaigns, and executing both client and ICC sponsor deliverables. He subsequently completed the FIFA Executive Programme in Sports Management and went on to build a strong track record in end-to-end sponsor portfolio management, customer acquisition and retention, and revenue generation.
“Nigel is a great addition to our venues team at just the right time,” said Rouyer. “The pandemic drove innovation in fan engagement, and now the return of fans to the stands is fueling further investment in solutions for producing compelling visual content. With his experience in the sports market and his understanding of stadium and in-venue operations, Nigel will help Chyron to seize new opportunities in providing advanced graphics and production solutions built on proven technology.”
Chyron’s Click Effects content control and delivery solutions for sports and entertainment productions enable arenas, stadiums, and other event venues to engage fans, strengthen brand loyalty, and boost sponsor revenues. Customers that adopt the full PRIME Live Platform can generate a complementary revenue-generating stream for fans in the stadium or for external audiences. Thanks to Chyron’s close relationship with its sister brands, Tracab and Hego, Davies will be uniquely positioned to offer stadium and in-venue solutions that also incorporate next-gen tracking and data visualization, as well as complete operations and support services.
