Deb Huttenburg, vice president of U.S. sales and marketing for Broadcast Electronics, is leaving to join infrastructure supplier Panduit as vice president of U.S. sales.
BE is promoting Tim Bealor to the U.S. sales VP position.
Both are familiar faces to radio equipment buyers.
Bealor has told me he’s been with the company since it was originally located in Silver Spring, Md., before the move to Quincy, Ill. Bealor has been with BE nearly 35 years, starting as a technician in 1975. Bealor attended Purdue University and served in the U.S. Navy. He has served in several technical, support, product management and marketing positions with the company, most recently as vice president of RF systems.
Huttenburg came to BE from Harris in December 2007 as vice president of business development and marketing. She was charged with expanding BE’s global footprint into new markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
Previously, Huttenburg was vice president and general manager of the radio business unit for Harris Corp.
She said the Panduit job gives her exposure to a different set of industries and allows her to return to Chicago. The company calls itself a developer and provider of solutions that help customers optimize their physical infrastructure. Just some of what Panduit makes includes cable, duct products, cable ties, cabinets and fiber optic systems. Broadcast Electronics manufactures transmitters, automation systems and other gear for program generation, audio and data management and inter-facility transport.
