TEAM

Radio.cloud is developed by a multinational team. Our teams are located in Bavaria, Saxony, Java (Indonesia) and Silicon Valley (USA, California). Many of our colleagues are deliberately not from the radio industry, but come from the telco industry or Fintech apps. The core playout, though, comes from team colleagues with over 15 years of radio and television experience.

Christian Brenner

President Director & Founder
Christian Brenner is a media entrepreneur with a focus on technical innovation. Christian, for example, set up the company SmartCast, which handled localised content management for broadcasters such as Disney, Fox and Cartoon Network in many Asian countries as a software-as-a-service solution. Today, SmartCast is part of satellite operator SES/Astra.
His current project is the new platform radio.cloud (in Bavaria known as BayCloudNet), which technically revolutionises production and contribution for radio stations via his company NexCast.
Christian has also set up several radio and TV channels, so he knows the requirements of the customers he now works for as a service provider.

Stephan Geiger

Managing Director/CEO
Stephan has been active in the areas of infrastructure, playout and consulting for TV and radio broadcasters for 15 years. As Head of Infrastructures at SmartCast (today part of SES/Astra), he built up the worldwide, decentralised operation for international TV networks. At the same time, he was significantly involved in various radio projects such as the satellite network supported by Bavarian media authority BLM. When SmartCast's radio business was spun off in 2014 (the radio division was not sold to SES/Astra), Stephan became shareholder and managing director. Since then he has been completely dedicated to radio. He has successfully managed numerous projects such as the entire relocation of Radio Energy and audio agency BLR.
