TSL announces two new hires as founder steps down

TSL Products has made two senior-level appointments. Joining the TSL team as president of TSL Inc (the company’s US-based lead office in Northridge, CA) and head of control systems (worldwide), is Ian Godfrey, while Robin Adams has been named worldwide sales director at TSL Products.

Godfrey formerly served as senior product manager at Telestream, where he was responsible for leading file-based workflow and media processing of the brand’s Vantage solution. Prior to this, he spent much of his career at Grass Valley, including the period when Snell Advanced Media (SAM), Miranda and Nvision were acquired. Joining the TSL team, Godfrey brings with him solid experience in control and monitoring systems, and router control while also building on his customer support experience.

Godfrey’s new role as president of TSL Inc and head of control systems represents a solid commitment to the US and worldwide customer base. As the head of all TSL’s control products, Godfrey will bring sharp focus to the US, which is a strategically important pillar of the TSL brand.

As TSL’s head of control systems for both the Marlow and Northridge portfolio, Godfrey carries the responsibility of defining and delivering strategies to develop the company’s control business.

“With years of experience working alongside broadcast solutions manufacturers and managing the development of control solutions for multiple brands, I am eager to bring my acquired skills to the TSL team,” said Godfrey (pictured, left). “Having spent a great deal of time working in the broadcast industry, I am excited to carry TSL’s impressive performance into the future with steady growth through innovative product developments that will stand the test of time.”

Meanwhile, Adams has enjoyed a successful career in sales spanning 20 years, most recently at EditShare where he held the position of vice president. Prior to his time at EditShare, Adams held leadership sales roles at EVS, Quantel and Softel.

“I am honoured and excited to be joining the TSL family as worldwide sales director,” said Adams. “With years of experience being accountable for sales-cycle management to identify and satisfy customer needs, I am well-prepared to launch this new role on a global level, working closely and transparently with TSL’s regional sales managers. I look forward to continue driving TSL’s sales for years to come.”

It has also been announced that, two and a half years after the acquisition of DNF Controls, TSL founder Dan Fogel is stepping out of the company to pursue other interests. Tom Dickinson, who was responsible for helping bring the two businesses together, has also announced his retirement.
