Digeo Inc. has poached the executive ranks of Sony Corp. again, this time naming Greg Gudorf as president and chief operating officer.

Gudorf most recently served as VP of television marketing at Sony, and played a direct role in the launching of Sony Passage, a platform that enables cable operators to run a second conditional access system alongside the incumbent's. At Digeo, he will oversee the company's day-to-day operations, with an emphasis on product delivery, process improvement and integration with MSO headend systems. Digeo said its previous COO, Bert Kolde, will continue to lead the company's sales and marketing team.

Earlier this month, Digeo tapped Mike Fidler as CEO. Fidler was the SVP of Sony Electronics' home products division before joining Digeo, the company behind the Moxi Media Center and a range of interactive television and navigation software products for set-top boxes.

"As Digeo continues to grow as a business and expand its customer base, we need a dedicated focus on operations to make sure we don't miss a beat. I have worked with Greg for many years and have seen first-hand his ability to drive superb execution," Filder said, in a statement.
