Conductor Technologies announced that sr. VP of sales and marketing Mac Moore has been named president. With more than 20 years experience guiding enterprise software partnerships globally, Moore has been a vital asset to the Conductor team since joining ahead of the cloud rendering platform’s SIGGRAPH 2017 launch. He assumes the president role from co-founder Kevin Baillie, who remains at the helm of Conductor’s board of directors but is shifting his primary focus to creative leadership at VFX studio Atomic Fiction, which recently signed an agreement to be acquired into Deluxe’s global VFX brand, Method Studios.
“From his first day on the job, Mac has been my right-hand man. He constantly blows me away with his depth and breadth of knowledge, and how personally committed he is to our mission of bringing efficient, enterprise-scale cloud rendering to the market,” said Baillie. “He knows cloud rendering and the M&E space like the back of his hand and has tangible love for our customers, which makes him the ideal person to shepherd Conductor along its remarkable growth path.”
Moore noted, “Throughout my career, I’ve gravitated towards transformative technology, and cloud has completely altered how we think about and execute in the content creation ecosystem. Conductor’s position in leading the cloud charge brought me here, and I’m thrilled at the opportunity to guide it forward.”
Prior to Conductor, Moore led a worldwide sales team for Autodesk’s Media & Entertainment division, helping navigate the company’s transition to SaaS and cloud-based models. Moore began his career in creative technology as an Software Applications Engineer at Mentor Graphics before eventually expanding into project management and broader business development roles. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University, and is based in Raleigh-Durham, NC.
Conductor’s cloud rendering platform launched into commercial availability mid-summer 2017, after a two-year customer beta, and to date has achieved dynamic scale of over 100,000 simultaneous cores. Conductor will be showcased at SIGGRAPH 2018.
