Thorsteinson to Exit Harris
MELBOURNE, FLA.: Tim Thorsteinson, the president of Harris Broadcast for the past three and a half years, is leaving his position effective Oct. 31.

The company said that Thorsteinson is retiring “to pursue other interests.” Harris has begun searching both internal and external candidates for his successor. Thorsteinson was previously president of Leitch but was named to lead Harris Broadcast after Harris bought Leitch in 2005. Before that, he was head of Grass Valley and also served in leadership positions with Tektronix and National Semiconductor Corp.

Howard Lance, chairman, president and CEO of Harris Corp., thanked Thorsteinson for his leadership and many accomplishments during his years with Harris. “Tim has been instrumental in driving our broadcast business’ global expansion, entry into new product and market segments and cost reduction and operations initiatives,” he said. -- from TV Technology
