TSL Products appoints Bexel’s Tom Dickinson as president of US division

TSL Products has appointed Tom Dickinson as president of the company’s US-based operation.

Until May 2020, Dickinson was chief technology officer at Bexel Global Broadcast Solutions, a company for whom he had worked for the last 39 years, holding leadership positions in sales, operations and engineering

In addition to managing and developing TSL’s US development, sales and support, Dickinson will also act as a senior member of the company’s management team, working across Northridge, CA and Marlow, UK.

In this role, Dickinson will play an important part in the definition and delivery of the strategy of TSL Products, the company said.

“I have always been a champion for TSL Products,” said Dickinson.

“Over the years, I have worked directly with TSL’s Director of Sales Greg Siers and Regional Sales Manager Fred Scott, and they have always been great to work with. The Northridge facility now supports TSL Product’s growing portfolio, and I am excited to be a part of its expansion. I look forward to further opening doors for all of TSL’s product offerings to customers based in North America and Canada.”

TSL bought DNF Controls in April 2019 and has integrated the two companies from the UK. The merger has “achieved significant growth” thanks to the opportunity to bring new products and technologies to both TSL and DNF’s customer base, according to TSL.

The combined sales from TSL Products and DNF Controls now account for more than 50% of TSL’s revenue.

Chris Exelby, managing director of TSL Products added: “A year since our acquisition of DNF Controls, the Northridge office is now the North American headquarters for TSL Products.

“With DNF’s Founder Dan Fogel stepping back into a part-time consulting role for U.S. customers, Dickinson is an excellent fit to lead the Northridge-based operations. A well-known and highly respected member of the broadcast industry, Dickinson’s easy manner and affable style has allowed him to forge strong relationships with customers across the region. TSL Products is in an increasingly strong position and we are thrilled to have him aboard.”
