WorldStage has announced that Josh Weisberg has stepped down from his positions as President and Chief Operating Officer and will remain with the company as an advisor on internal initiatives, as well as taking a lead position on specific projects.

WorldStage Chairman & CEO, Gary Standard, co-founder of WorldStage and founder of Video Applications added, “The company has an exceptional management team, most of whom have been with our company for decades and who’s dedicated work and leadership have established WorldStage as an industry leader due to the quality of work we provide to our clients.”

Joining the management team is Guy Denniston who has been a consultant to WorldStage and its senior management for close to two years.  Guy has become the COO (Chief Operating Officer) of the company.

“All of us at WorldStage will continue to deliver the leading-edge technology with customer focused attention we are known for and look forward to continuing to work with Josh in his new role,” concluded Standard.
