Joe Mack has been named chief revenue officer of equipment manufacturer GatesAir. It is a newly formed position.
Meanwhile Rich Redmond has left the company after 23 years, a spokesman confirmed to Radio World. Redmond most recently held the title of president – managing director, international.
“Joe will take ownership of global sales activity in his new role, with all regional sales leaders across APAC, CALA, EMEA and North America reporting to him,” the company stated in a release.
Mack will continue to report to GatesAir CEO Bruce D. Swail.
Mack has been with GatesAir and its predecessor Harris for 30 years. He was promoted to VP of sales for the Americas when GatesAir was formed in 2014, after holding leadership roles at Harris Corporation’s Broadcast Communications Division. “Joe was responsible for all U.S. spectrum repack sales efforts, which established GatesAir as the undisputed market share leader for broadcast transmission,” the company stated. He joined Harris through the acquisition of Midwest Communication in 1990.
Rich Redmond joined Harris in 1998, according to his LinkedIn page, and held several sales and business development roles. He has been a familiar face to visitors to the GatesAir booth at trade shows, and played an important role in that 2014 “carveout” of GatesAir from Harris six years ago. He started his career with Northeast Broadcast Lab in 1990. Redmond did not immediately reply to a request for comment from Radio World.
GatesAir is part of The Gores Group, a global investment firm.
