Hi, I’m Stephen McCluskey, new CEO at vzaar. I’m really pleased to be helping this dynamic company to grow and drive the takeup of online video to our business customers.

My background is in growing tech businesses. I’ve grown, acquired and sold online software businesses but my real interest is in matching market need to fast-track development…and nowhere is market need growing faster than companies worldwide using video online to promote their products and services. This market is growing at an exponential rate today.

So, what is happening in our online video world: everything is accelerating …

We are growing faster than ever before as customers recognise the great value online video brings to their website propositions. This is reflected in vzaar’s sales, recruitment and increased funding.

Our growth is phenomenal: 3X what it was 6 months ago: online video truly has arrived and we’re proving it! As a result we have recruited across the company’s operations, sales, development, customer service and design…and we continue to recruit.

vzaar is innovating and launching new developments faster than any other video platform provider today: 3 months and 3 brilliant new service enhancements for our professional customers:

Firstly, the bulk uploader allows customers with many videos to manage the encoding and uploading service of multiple video files in parallel, cutting down on time and improving their effectiveness.

Likewise, the new video labels & playlist function will help vzaar customers review and organise their list of videos very easily.

And the latest development: vzaar’s brilliant new iPhone and iPad application is hot off the press: signed off by Apple on 10 June. It’s really intuitive way to manage your online videos on the move. Download it FREE today from iTunes!

There’s a lot more coming up very soon in the vzaar pipeline … so watch this space. Also, if you have ideas you would like to see the team at vzaar implement, drop us an email.

I delighted to join the vzaar team with so much excitement in the rapidly growing market of online video. I’ll be doing all I can to underline vzaar’s position as the prime professional online video provider.

Stephen McCluskey CEO, vzaar
