Prior to IYUNO, Dembry served as CTO at On Demand Group (ODG), a company connecting content owners and video distributors to deliver media to viewers, where he managed application development, data warehousing and business intelligence solutions.
After ODG was re-branded to Vubiquity, Dembry’s role changed to CIO where he was the technology lead for all aspects of software development and oversaw the IT infrastructure, support, software development, data warehousing & business intelligence solutions, and the company’s hosted video on demand (VOD) platforms.
