3Play Media Welcomes David Mendels and Frances West to Board of Directors
Updated: May 19, 2021
We are thrilled to welcome two new members to 3Play Media’s Board of Directors – David Mendels, former CEO and President of Brightcove, and Frances West, former Chief Accessibility Officer at IBM. Each brings incredible value and experience to our team and core company goals.
91% of marketers believe video has become more important for brands as a result of the pandemic, and approximately three out of ten marketers claim they would be more likely to use video as a result. We are eager to have the guidance of these two incredible and experienced individuals at such a defining time in our industry.
Mendels has a long legacy of proven success in digital media. He served as the CEO and President of Brightcove. Prior to that, he held multiple leadership positions at Adobe and Macromedia. He currently serves as a Board Member for Resilient Coders and WITNESS.
West brings decades of experience in digital accessibility and DEI to support 3Play Media’s focus on leadership and innovation in video accessibility. She is the founder of FrancesWestCo. She was IBM’s first Chief Accessibility Officer, and is currently a member of the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts chapter of the International Women’s Forum and the World Institute on Disability.
The entire 3Play Media team is confident that David’s deep operational experience in the digital media industry paired with Frances’s ability to connect accessibility and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives with real business value will lead us to new heights. We are excited to have Mendels and West’s support as we continue to focus on innovation and growth as the leader in video accessibility technology.
