McKiernan joined StreamAMG in 2013 and has since established the sports division as one of the major players in the OTT industry.
Progressing to General Manager, then Chief Operating Officer and his current role as Chief Product and Innovation Officer, he has developed the sports OTT business both from a product perspective, pioneering market-leading technology and solutions, and operationally, with StreamAMG now broadcasting more than 12,000 sports events every year.
The sports team is based in MediaCityUK, Salford, and services a wide range of clients, including the vast majority of Premier League football clubs as well as over 50 high profile organisations in Spain, France and Italy.
McKiernan also established and developed partnerships with a number of key players in sport including Matchroom (Matchroom Live, PDC TV), GAAGO and The Football Association.
And he was instrumental in the return-to-play programme for the EFL Championship, League One and Two for the 2020-21 campaign, pioneering a route to fully remote production and delivery. StreamAMG broadcasted behind-closed-doors games for more than 22 EFL clubs offering millions of fans the ability to watch their team play during the pandemic.
