News North America People UK

UK/US — Video analytics company Big Sofa has hired Steve Aukers as president and CEO, North America, as it expands its offer to the region. 

Aukers (pictured) was most recently CEO of J. Reckner Associates, and has also served on the North American operating board at TNS Global, where he held a number of roles including head of strategy. 

“All types of business today are using video, but we believe they’ve only scratched the surface of its possibilities," said Simon Lidington, CEO of Big Sofa.

"That’s why we’re pioneering the collection, curation and analysis of images in industry. The demand for Big Sofa’s services in the US has been clear to us for some time. Now that we’ve found the right leader for the US team, we’re looking forward to driving the revolution in video use stateside.”
