Ross Video has hired Andy Newham as its EMEA business development manager for Switchers and openTruck. Newham has previously worked for many years in sales and product management roles with Arqiva UK Ltd, Harmonic Inc., Harris Corporation and Omnibus Systems.
“Ross is winning high-profile business right across the territory and I’m delighted to have secured this new role with a company that’s growing so rapidly,” said Newham. “It’s an exciting time to be joining Ross Video’s dynamic EMEA team and, with the launch of the new flagship Acuity switcher, to be working with the core product line.”
Ross Video’s production switchers are the company’s core products, since 1974. As well working with the switcher product line, Andy Newham will also be developing business for Ross Video’s openTruck, a powerful remote-production initiative that provides cost-effective network-quality production. OpenTruck is an initiative that provides a standardised yet customisable way to design a new generation of cost-effective remote-production vehicles that deliver the highest quality video and audio content from sports and other live events.
“This is yet another excellent addition to Ross Video’s EMEA team,” commented David Dowling, Ross Video’s director of sales for EMEA. “Ross is enjoying unprecedented results at a time when the industry is consumed with merger and acquisition activity. We’re attracting the best talent in the broadcast world thanks to our consistent approach and customer-centric values. Andy will be an important contributor to our on-going success and I expect to make further additions to the team in the run-up to IBC.”
