Our Team

Chris Ainger

Head of Technical Sales

Chris joined NEP Connect from BT Media and Broadcast in September, bringing 17 years of experience and success in creating and delivering solutions for the media industry globally.

Chris now leads NEP Connect’s Technical Sales team, providing leadership and world class solutions to the industry. Chris’ focus is on driving forward the technology and ensuring that NEP Connect continues its longstanding history of innovation and assured delivery at the forefront of media solutions.  Chris’s remit is far reaching and he will not only lead the Technical Sales Team but work on new solutions to grow our Gateway services and support Dave Meynell, NEP Connect’s MD in launching new services, particularly supporting broadcasters’ internal networks.  Chris will work closely with Jeff Hallman on the global growth aspirations of NEP Connect.  

An alumni of the University of Kent, Chris started his career in 2000 at Marconi designing SDH and ATM telecoms networks before joining BT’s broadcast services business as a design engineer in 2002. Over the next few years Chris was part of wider team leading the transition of broadcast transmission into the MPLS-IP world, helping to deliver the first MPLS-based Global Network for live broadcast.  Since 2010 Chris led the Technical Solutions team designing platforms and bespoke media networking solutions for major global broadcasters.

Chris spends his free time with his young family and most weekends are spent in the garden or at the park. Whenever he gets the chance he is an avid movie-goer and gamer. Chris loves travelling – the more exotic the location the better!
