LEXINGTON, Ky.—Chris Black, who recently departed as chief financial officer at Vivint, has been named to the same position at Viamedia, which is based here and specializes in selling advertising to local, regional and national advertisers on behalf of U.S. cable and telecommunications companies, utilities and municipalities, according to a Viamedia statement.

“I am very pleased to be joining [Viamedia CEO] Jeff Carter and the rest of the impressive Viamedia team,” he said in statement. “I am looking forward to helping Viamedia continue its strong organic growth trajectory along with evaluating new business opportunities.”

Black was CFO at Vivint for about two years. The company told Security Systems News in December that Black was leaving the company after Blackstone purchased Vivint for more than $2 billion. Black was able to sell some equity in the transaction, Vivint CEO Todd Pedersen told SSN.
