Following news of Raal Harris’s promotion to the position of Managing Director at KVH Videotel earlier in the year, the company has announced a further strengthening of its management team with the appointment of Jason Barreto as European Sales Manager.
Mr Barreto started his sales career with a series of airline, shipmanagement, and marine travel companies, gaining particular experience in the offshore market.
Prior to joining KVH Videotel, he worked at the OSM Maritime Group, where he was head of sales and business development for the crew management side of the business.
His remit at KVH Videotel includes building on the business already established in such regions as Scandinavia and strengthening the company’s presence in the UK, France, Spain, and Portugal, as well as developing new revenue income streams.
“I am really excited about working at KVH Videotel especially during such an innovative period where new technology is changing the way we can develop training programmes, such as using virtual reality and gaming techniques, so seafarers can learn through task-based exercises,” said Mr Barreto.
“I’d like to welcome Jason to the team and am confident he’ll be central in helping us reach our strategic sales goals by focusing on selling the benefits of our training materials to help crew perform their roles in a safe and professional manner,” said Joe Pitcher, KVH Videotel’s Sales Director.
“I am delighted to welcome Jason to the KVH Videotel family. He has the right skill set to really promote the amazing training content which our talented production team creates,” said Raal Harris, Managing Director, KVH Videotel.
Mr Barreto is based in KVH Videotel’s London office.
