GatesAir, a global provider of over-the-air content delivery solutions for radio and TV broadcasters, announced the appointment of Jacky Yee as head of sales, Asia-Pacific. Based in Singapore, Jacky will lead a team of four regional sales managers, and report directly to Rich Redmond, president and managing director, International.
Jacky comes to GatesAir with over 20 years of experience in the broadcast and audio-visual industries, including regional and director-level sales roles with Tektronix, Extron Electronics, Grass Valley Group and Snell Advanced Media. His experience includes a stint as sales manager, Southeast Asia for Harris Broadcast Communications Division – the company from which GatesAir was born.
“Having witnessed the transition of analog to digital TV broadcasting in the APAC region from day one, I’m aware of how regional regulatory initiatives have divided the implementation phases,” said Yee. “Because of this, I see opportunities to grow GatesAir’s television business across the Asia-Pacific sub-regions and emerging countries, while continuing to refresh FM infrastructure and advance digital radio,” he added. Jacky’s experience in the broadcast industry has also led to relationships with broadcasters and existing GatesAir channel partners across the Asia-Pacific region.
“The Asia-Pacific region has rich cultures, numerous long-term broadcasters and many new business opportunities. Jacky’s leadership and in-depth understanding of Asia-Pacific cultures will be a cornerstone for GatesAir’s future success in this region,” said Redmond.
