ATG Broadcast appointmented Guy Elliott as managing director designate. Guy Elliot will work alongside the current managing director, Graham Buchanan, until September 1 when Graham moves into the role of Chairman.
Guy Elliott's 30-year broadcast industry career commenced when he co-founded broadcast radio systems installation specialist Elliott Brothers (Audio Systems) Ltd in 1978. He later gained wider experience with Redifon SPT, Sennheiser UK, Kingston TLI and Encoda Systems before joining Leitch Europe in 2001. In 2005 Harris Corporation acquired Leitch and Elliott was appointed Director of Regional Sales Europe. During his career at Harris, Elliott helped grow sales by more than 30 percent and successfully integrated new business acquisitions into the regional sales infrastructure.
"It is a great pleasure to welcome Guy onto the ATG Broadcast team," Graham Buchanan comments. "He is well known and highly respected throughout the industry and arrives with a proven track record for achieving corporate business goals. His energy and ambition will be put to good use as ATG Broadcast develops in the coming years."
"With the increasing focus on IT-based broadcast engineering, this is an ideal time to be progressing from hardware manufacturing into dedicated television systems integration," Guy Elliott adds. "ATG Broadcast is a highly successful performer in Northern Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, combining an effective blend of traditional and computer-based engineering experience. My objective will be to extend ATG's presence into a wider market arena. I look forward to working with the Letchworth-based team and our colleagues within Danmon Systems Group."
