Ron and Ted Paley
A man who helped put touchscreens in front of many early radio computer automation users is making a career move.
Ron Paley has retired from Canadian manufacturer OMT Technologies after 42 years with the company. He stepped down at the end of 2009 but is pursuing a continued career in selling broadcast equipment and services in the United States and Canada through his company Ron Paley Broadcast, along with his brother Ted.
The Paley family remains a shareholder in OMT.
“My 32 years at the helm of OMT, with the last 10 years as employee of OMT Public Corp., were personally extremely rewarding,” Paley told Radio World. “Ted was my business partner in OMT until we took it public in 2001. Ted left OMT in 2003 to pursue an accounting practice. In 2007, with some convincing persuasion, I was able to get Ted back into broadcasting and we founded the Ron Paley Broadcast distribution business.
“While I continued working at OMT, on his own and with some minor guidance Ted steadily built Ron Paley Broadcast into a serious broadcast hardware sales and technical integration entity. My transition from OMT to RPB was made very easy for me and now I can get fully involved in the RPB company. Might as well I suppose, as it carries my name,” he wrote.
Ron and Ted Paley plan to attend the NAB Show and are seeking relationships with manufactures looking for experienced rep/integrators. At present the company represents Wheatstone, Vorsis, Pro Racks Broadcast Computers and StudioHub products in Canada.
