Visual Data Expands to Singapore and Promotes Simon Constable to Chief Operating Officer

Visual Data, a top provider of end-to-end media supply chain services, with bases in Burbank and London, is expanding into the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of a new hub in Singapore. This strategic move allows the company to serve the extensive and varied Asian market while reinforcing its dedication to delivering quality global services at scale. Concurrently, industry veteran Simon Constable has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer (COO) and will continue to report to John Trautman, CEO of Visual Data.

The announcement marks a crucial milestone in the company’s global expansion strategy, following the acquisition of EVA Localisation in France, Germany, and Spain last year. Since its establishment in 1995, Visual Data has experienced consistent growth, with an acceleration in global service expansion following a partnership with Endeavour Capital in 2020. The decision to establish a hub in Singapore responds to the increasing content production for streaming in Asia, creating a higher demand for international production expertise and support across diverse regions and time zones. With Singapore as part of its network of global facilities, Visual Data enhances its ability to offer fully integrated global services with local expertise.

“We recognise the importance of being close to our customers wherever they are, and providing specialised services tailored to their needs when they need them,” said John Trautman, CEO of Visual Data. “With our new location in Singapore, we provide local expert talent for productions across Asia, while giving our global clients access to services across any time zone.”

Trautman continues, “As we navigate this next phase of our global strategy, I’m thrilled to promote Simon Constable as COO to oversee our global operations. We share a clear vision, and I’m confident that with his stewardship we will continue to grow our end-to-end services on a global scale.”

With over 25 years of experience, Simon Constable brings a rich and diverse background covering nearly every aspect of the digital media supply chain and content localisation. As Executive Vice President, Global Language Services, Constable has driven Visual Data’s worldwide access and localisation business forward, advancing dubbing, subtitling, captioning, audio description, and metadata for international distribution. In his new role as COO, Constable will lead global operations across media services, language services, and localisation, focusing on strategic growth, process automation, and innovation throughout the media supply chain.

“I am honoured to take on this new role as we further advance our follow-the-sun strategy,” said Constable. “Our presence in Singapore marks another exciting step in our mission to provide a robust and relevant integrated global infrastructure, and I look forward to leveraging that momentum as we continue to deliver even greater depth and breadth of end-to-end digital media and localisation services in key territories.”
