GatesAir has created a dedicated organisational structure for its intraplex business, and has appointed industry veteran Dave Agnew to the key position of intraplex channel manager. He reports to Steve Paulson, director of intraplex sales, and will be focused on global customer initiatives and business development in the broadcast market.
Agnew previously worked for GatesAir (then part of Harris Corporation) in the 1990s and 2000s in various roles, including field service engineer, senior sales application engineer and product manager. He returns to the organization after 11 years with iHeartMedia, where he most recently served as director of engineering and IT for the northern Colorado region.
Agnew will leverage his vast experience with GatesAir technology and solutions coupled with his recent station background, working directly with GatesAir partners and end users to help them successfully sell and use Intraplex products in their broadcast operations.
“Dave intimately understands the specific concerns of broadcasters and our overall customer base when it comes to working with IP and TDM networking solutions, and how to effectively implement and use our products,” said Paulson. “His broad knowledge base and extensive industry experience lends a high level of credibility while communicating with channel partners and end users worldwide, and will greatly enhance our ability to capitalise on both existing and emerging business opportunities.”
In addition to the sale and implementation of Intraplex products worldwide, Agnew will work closely with channel partners around global trade show presence and technical presentations, among other key promotional and educational initiatives.
