Pablo Gargiulo To Head Sales At Harris Broadcast

Also names regional sales heads

Harris Broadcast has named Pablo Gargiulo as president of
 global sales, where he will be responsible for leading a global sales
 organization that spans 140 countries and 3,000 customers.

Gargiulo will report directly to Charlie Vogt, CEO of Harris 

He brings over 25 years of experience to the post and had
 most recently served as COO and executive VP of Xtera Communications, Inc., a 
global optical transport company.

As part of the announcement Harris Broadcast also said that
 it had set up a new sales organization with four regions — North America, 
Central/Latin America (CALA), Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and 
South Asia/North Asia (Asia) — and named four executives to head up those
 regional sales efforts.

These are Chris Ziemer in North America; Nahuel Villegas for
 CALA; Mathias Eckert for EMEA and Joe Khodeir and JiShun Mei in Asia.

"Pablo is a tested and proven leader who has supported
 dynamic industry transformation in parallel industries and brings unique 
capabilities in empowering and integrating global sales forces acquired through
 multiple acquisitions," said Vogt in a statement. "With our customers facing
 major industry and technology transitions, Pablo will improve customer intimacy 
across our global regions and accelerate development of growth opportunities in 
each. He is singularly committed to fueling our customers' profitability while 
helping them navigate the disruptive opportunities and challenges associated
 with ongoing transformations, whether that be the impact of on-demand or the
digital transition to video and audio over IP."
