Assistant Vice President, Media & Entertainment,
Timothy Sheehy leads the business activities of Birlasoft’s Media & Entertainment practice and is responsible for strategic partnerships with existing clients and the development of new business relationships. As such he is also responsible for developing for the go-to-market strategies in the M+E space which involves new product development, partnerships and industry alliances.
Timothy brings almost three decades of M+E experience to the position, including on-air positions in network news, episodic television production & digital media strategies. He started his career as a teenager in small market radio in Southern Ontario and quickly worked his way up to anchoring, reporting and producing positions with the CTV Television Network where he spent almost 10 years covering national and international news. He also co-owned an episodic television production company – Royal York Films – that produced and distributed lifestyle content worldwide. From there his career took him into leadership roles in economic development and technology and a move to the United States, where he has built out a solid track record at the intersection of M+E and technology. His career has involved everything from start-ups ( the first one crashed and burned, and expensive but valuable lessons were learned) to successful subsequent exits (where the expensive lessons had been applied.) In the most recent past, he has focused on contributing at a leadership level to the creation and growth of focused M+E practices with global systems integration and technology consulting companies. His motto… “I never lose. I win or I learn.”
