Gorilla has been providing business-centric technology solutions to NGCI since 2007, with its first project involving the launch of the Nat Geo Music Channel in Italy.
It says something about the robustness of our solution design, and strength of our technology, that NGCI has been able to grow so quickly, while continuing to maximize the value of their media assets.
Under Haslingden's leadership, NGCI and NGC will continue to operate as distinct entities, with different ownership structures.
