AMSTERDAM, March 30, 2023—Unified Streaming, the Amsterdam-based innovator in the video streaming technology field, has named Martin van Aalderen its new CEO as of March 1, 2023.
Van Aalderen will chart the company’s new phase of growth. He replaces Dirk Griffioen, who will focus on special projects within the organization.
Throughout his career van Aalderen has applied his skills to growing companies within the IT sector and the securities services industry, with a focus on clearing/settlement and risk management.
Before leading Unified Streaming, van Aalderen consulted for a UK-based software vendor in post-trade solutions. Acting upon van Aalderen’s vision, the vendor is now investing in the US market for exchange-traded derivatives and securities.
In Chicago, van Aalderen directed Object+ America LLC, the American counterpart of Object+ Financial Services BV, a company he founded in the Netherlands. He sold Object+, which specializes in market risk software development for banks, brokers, and professional traders, to a UK-based software company in 2020.
As CEO of Unified Streaming, van Aalderen will focus the company on its goal of accelerating global growth.
“It’s a great honor to succeed Dirk Griffioen, one of the founders who helped build Unified Streaming into a highly recognized and profitable company,” said Unified Streaming CEO van Aalderen. “It is my ambition to serve our existing customers to the best of our ability and to expand our business with leading-edge tech. Our people, our products, and our customers are the foundation of our anticipated growth.”
Since 2012, Unified Streaming has provided solutions for complex streaming challenges. Customers of the software company include the BBC, HBO, Globo, NPO, and Viaplay.
