Blinkx, the internet media platform, has announced the appointment of Sudhi Herle to serve as its chief product officer, entailing leadership of its product, engineering and operations teams.

S. Brian Mukherjee, CEO of blinkx, described Herle as a ‘key hire to fortify our position in an industry moving toward better audience filtering, targeting and segmentation across screens, with mobile as the lynchpin’.

He added: “Our recent acquisitions continue to bolster our mobile and video capabilities, positioning us squarely in the two leading growth vectors of the industry. Sudhi will bring to bear his vast mobile, technology and product leadership experience to drive innovation across the Company and maximize our growth potential in these areas. Sudhi's product and engineering role dovetails perfectly with the operational and sales alignment already in progress within the Company - one that we expect will help blinkx accelerate its mission to lead the cross-screen video movement, at scale."

Herle joins blinkx from Samsung where he served as global head of enterprise products and vice president of its mobile R&D division. Prior to Samsung Herle was head of engineering at Sipera (Avaya), a VoIP security startup.
