Barbara will be based at NewTek headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, when she is not on the road visiting channel partners.
“I am very excited to join the NewTek team. Video production is growing at an exponential rate across all segments and markets, and NewTek’s breakthrough technologies represent an outstanding revenue opportunity for our channel partners world-wide. I look forward to strengthening and expanding our eco-system,” said Barbara Spicek, senior vice president of Global Sales for NewTek.

Paul’s home office will be in Bangkok, Thailand.
