Thorsteinson is new Grass Valley president, CEO
One of the broadcast technology industry’s most prominent executives, with previous roles as president of the Broadcast Communications division of Harris Corp and president/CEO of Leitch to his credit, Tim Thorsteinson has been appointed to serve as president/CEO of Grass Valley with immediate effect.
Most recently, Thorsteinson helmed Enablence Technologies Inc, the long-established access network solutions developer. Now, at Grass Valley, he succeeds Alain Andreoli, who led the successful acquisition and ‘carve out’ of Grass Valley from Technicolour two years ago.
David Golob, partner at Francisco Partners and chairman of the Board of Grass Valley, comments: “We are pleased to have Tim Thorsteinson join Grass Valley at this pivotal point in the company’s transformation. Tim’s in-depth industry knowledge and his proven track record of value creation will ensure Grass Valley’s continued success as an independent leader in the rapidly evolving broadcast infrastructure market. I would also like to thank Alain for all of his contributions in helping to re-establish Grass Valley as an independent company.”
Thorsteinson adds: “Grass Valley is uniquely positioned to help lead the broadcast industry into the multi-platform era and I am excited to be joining the team. I know first hand of the rich history of technical innovation that our customers around the world have come to expect from Grass Valley and I intend to continue that tradition through our powerful product portfolio and best in class solutions.”
