GatesAir Appoints Peter Timmons to EMEA Biz Development Role


GatesAir has appointed Peter Timmons as Business Development Director across Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and India, effective immediately. Reporting to Andy McClelland, Managing Director, EMEA and India, Peter will focus on new and existing customer and partner relationships, with an eye on strengthening brand visibility and market share region-wide.

Peter comes to GatesAir with more than 20 years of broadcast experience, including engineering and management roles with some of the industry's most recognized brands. He joins GatesAir from Grass Valley (a Belden brand), where he served as Senior Product Manager for several key product lines. Over his three-year tenure, Peter grew existing product revenues and developed several new product lines to complement existing live production and playout solutions. Prior to Grass Valley, Peter held key positions at Imagine Communications, Sony Professional Services and Harris Broadcast Communications, the company from which GatesAir was born.

Peter's return to GatesAir comes at a time of aggressive expansion across the company's international business structure. Under the leadership of CEO Bruce D. Swail, GatesAir has reorganized and broadened its global sales and business development team in EMEA, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific regions over the past six months. Peter will support these growth initiatives in EMEA and India through new programs that will stimulate GatesAir's sales channels, and increase sales penetration for GatesAir's product lines. Along with driving transmitter sales for digital TV and radio transitions, Peter sees exciting opportunities for GatesAir's Intraplex networking solutions as broadcasters accelerate IP adoptions.

"The transition to IP has evolved from aspiration to reality, and we anticipate a broad array of opportunities for GatesAir as broadcasters embrace IP networking across their over-the-air systems, including DVB-T2 and DAB Radio," said Timmons. "GatesAir's unparalleled technology and customer service will amplify our success in this highly competitive landscape. My experience across customer relations, identifying business opportunities, and providing solutions tailored to each customer's needs will fortify our regional initiatives."

Peter also anticipates an increase in roadshows, customer visits and partner training sessions to help drive business development initiatives across the region.
