15 August 2012 - Active Storage, Inc., the leader in high-performance storage solutions for media and entertainment post-production, and broadcast professionals, today announced the hiring of Thomas Filioud as Regional Sales Manager for Europe. Thomas will be based out of Active Storage's office in the United Kingdom.

Thomas has a deep understanding and experience working within the media and entertainment customer base, having formerly worked for Attempo Software Solutions, where he was the country manager for the UK. Prior to that, Thomas was part of the solutions sales division at Dell. "Thomas is a key addition to the Active Storage's EMEA sales group," said Paul Phillips, Managing Director, Active Storage.
