Kiswe said that, effective Thursday, Glenn Booth was selected as CEO, succeeding Mike Schabel, who will continue with the New Providence-based company as president.
The interactive video company has seen tremendous growth notably over the last few years as demand for music and sports live-streaming and virtual production skyrocketed.
Booth previously served as the chief operating officer at Kiswe for the past five years, where his efforts led to company milestones such as international KPop sensation BTS using the Kiswe platform to bring its virtual performances to Guinness World Record-breaking crowds. Earlier this year, he was recognized as a Billboard International Power Player.
Prior to his time at Kiswe, Booth served as the executive vice president & general manager of 5G Business at Nokia, as well as EVP & general manager of LTE Business and vice president & head of wireless strategy at Alcatel-Lucent.
“I’m honored by the trust my colleagues have in me to build on the legacy of excellence that has started with our founding team and will continue for many years to come as we work together as partners and friends to create the future of entertainment,” Booth said.
Kiswe has helped reshape the live events industry over the past few years, delivering hundreds of interactive, live-streamed events to every United Nations-recognized country in the world.
“I’ve had many years to witness firsthand Glenn’s energy, leadership skills and business acumen. He has a gift for making big businesses bigger with dominant market leadership. I absolutely believe he is the right person to take our company into its next phase of growth and innovation. We are completely aligned in ensuring that this will be a seamless transition for our amazing team and clients,” Schabel added.
