Company

The media industry is a giant, fragmented beast. Multiple platforms. Multiple OSes. Multiple integrations. With no end in sight. It seems the easier it becomes for viewers to consume content, the more difficult it becomes to implement. Luckily, we were built for this. You.i TV puts tools in the hands of development teams to build market-leading apps on screens of all shapes and sizes. We get platform disparity. We get scaling a video business. We get shifting viewing behaviors. And we’ve built a product to tackle all of that in a way that’s efficient, agile, and ever evolving.

We’re You.i TV

Jason’s entrepreneurial spirit is fuelled by his passion for technology. Having founded and scaled software companies in the past, most notably N-Able and Flick Software, Jason’s knowledge of enterprise growth and management has seen You.i TV grow, year-over-year with no signs of stopping. His insights have made him a sought-after speaker, with featured appearances at Variety, NAB, and Tedx events. Jason offers support and guidance to up-and-coming tech companies as a board member for Invest Ottawa and Startup Canada.

Stuart’s successes in software and hardware development, patent licensing, and business management have served You.i TV well since day one. Stuart served as CTO before transitioning into Chief Research Officer (CRO), where he is now responsible for tracking emerging tech and charting the next generation of You.i TV’s product offerings.

Andrew Emmons was You.i TV’s first hire, and has been pivotal in shaping You.i Engine One, contributing many of the Engine’s core features and functionality. Andrew continues that effort as CTO, leading the product engineering and software test teams: implementing new operational and technical strategies to streamline development and improve business functions.

A proven product development leader, Ken has a knack for delivering reliable and scalable enterprise solutions. During his 14 years with Adobe, Ken was responsible for spearheading product development and cloud operations for Adobe’s Campaign and Experience Manager Mobile solutions. As You.i TV’s VP of Product Engineering, Ken is tasked with leading our engineering, documentation, and quality assurance operations to elevate our technology infrastructure to new levels.

An expert on finding, developing and retaining talent, Heather dedicates her time and energy to crafting the best possible culture and experience for the people on the You.i TV team.  Heather’s leadership and coaching continually inspires the team to challenge the status quo, embrace creativity, and create an environment where game changers thrive.

From accelerating growth plans and raising capital in CFO positions at BTI Systems, March Networks, Yellow Pages, Optiva, and the Ottawa Senators, to serving as a longstanding Chair of Audit and Governance Committees of Sandvine, Ken’s 25+ years as a trusted financial leader speaks for itself. At You.i TV, Ken is tasked with executing strategic investments plans to grow our business to new heights, keeping his track record sparkling.

As Chief Revenue Officer for You.i TV, Don oversees all aspects of the You.i TV go-to-market strategy, including Sales, Services and Customer Support. Don was an early member of the You.i TV team and was critical in defining the strategy and contributing to the growth of You.i TV – now the standard for cross-platform app development in TV and Media. Don has considerable experience in technology strategy, sales and business development. He was previously the Director of Business Development at OpenText and the General Manager and Head of Business Development, BitFlash Division at Quickoffice.
