Mark Gardner has joined Ross as director of sales, EMEA North. Gardner joins Ross with a wealth of experience in the broadcast industry, having held R&D/engineering, product management and sales management/director roles with a number of brands including Vistek, ProBel, Snell, SAM and most recently Grass Valley.

I can’t think of any other company in our sector that has doubled its regional turnover in three years and grown its team by one third. It’s clear that the company is walking a very positive path and I’ve been hugely impressed with the ambition, expertise and warmth of everyone I’ve met.”
Gardner adds that he is very much looking forward to sharing the Ross partnership approach and latest innovations with an increasing number of customers in the region.
“It’s going to be another significant year of new solution launches, and I’m raring to get started,” he added.
Oscar Juste, vice president of global sales, is very pleased to welcome Gardner to the team. “Mark is a well-known and popular figure in the industry and he will play an important role in helping Ross expand our customer base in these well-established and competitive broadcast markets,” he said. “We will also need his expertise as we continue developing into other sectors and industries, broadening our footprint and proposing innovative new solutions to the creative, business and technical challenges faced by content creators everywhere. I am delighted to welcome Mark, and I am confident will add further strength and depth to Ross Team EMEA.”
