As part of its continued expansion in the EMEA region, GatesAir has appointed broadcast industry veteran Alexander Kurz to its EMEA sales team.
GatesAir says Kurz will report to Andy McClelland, managing director, EMEA and India, and will work closely with the broader EMEA sales and business development team in the DACH [Germany, Austria, Switzerland] region. He’ll also cover most European countries and CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] countries south and east to the Ukrainian and Russian borders, and work closely with EMEA business development manager Peter Timmons to support regional roadshows, customer visits and partner training sessions.
Kurz has more than 20 years of industry experience and joins GatesAir from NeuLion, where he helped over-the-air broadcasters and PayTV providers distribute and monetize OTT content to complement existing TV services. In addition, he has over 15 years of experience in the test and measurement field with Ineoquest and Tektronix.
“Alexander’s depth of broadcast experience and regional knowledge, including strong customer relationships that he has solidified over more than two decades, makes him the ideal person to strengthen GatesAir’s visibility and market share in the DACH and eastern European regions,” said Rich Redmond, president and managing director, International for GatesAir. “We are excited to welcome him to the team as we continue to expand our presence throughout EMEA and other international regions.”
