BURY ST EDMUNDS, U.K. — Jan. 7, 2019 — Vitec Group today announced the retirement of Gary Rotondelli, director of technical sales for Vinten automation. Rotondelli has charted an illustrious career in the broadcast robotics and automation industry spanning more than three decades, including 26 years with the Vitec Group's Vinten brand.
"Gary has been a staple in our company for almost 30 years, and he has become the face and name associated with our world-class Vinten automation and robotics products. The hard work and dedication he's given our customers and his talent for relationship-building have paid off tremendously, and he has played a huge role in establishing Vinten as an industry leader," said Paul Dudeck, vice president, sales, the Americas at Vitec Production Solutions. "We will miss Gary's charm and wit, but most of all, we will miss his hard work and dedication to the company. It's bittersweet, but we wish him all the best as he takes on new adventures."
Rotondelli began his career in broadcast robotics in 1985 as national sales manager for TSM, a company that went on to become the premier U.S. manufacturer of robotic camera systems for television news production. After Vinten acquired TSM in 1993, he advanced through the company's sales management team, serving in roles including national sales manager, director of robotic sales and prompting, and business development manager for robotics and prompting. He became director of technical sales in 2017.
"From the day this journey began, I have been fortunate to meet and work with many incredible people and some of the industry's most respected companies and customers. I value the respect and friendships of my colleagues, so many of whom I regard as my second family, and the business community," Rotondelli said. "The decision to retire was not an easy one, but I have enjoyed the role I've played in making Vinten the leading brand for broadcast robotics. The teamwork and dedication of Vitec Group professionals is beyond compare in any industry."
