Segal will report into Videology's COO, Tom McMahon, and succeeds Ryan Ladisa, who will be leaving the company after a transitional period to pursue outside interests.

Segal will work with Videology's North American leadership team to strategically market and deploy Videology's unique products and solutions to the Canadian marketplace. He will also lead the company's Canadian sales, operations, and business development efforts.

Most recently, he was CEO of Engagement Labs, an early-stage technology company that provided data-driven solutions for marketers to drive business results via social media. During his tenure, Segal help launched TotalSocial, the world's first solution that integrates all consumer conversation both online and offline.
