Grass Valley Announces New President, Restructuring
Grass Valley this week announced several new appointments--including a new president--along with a restructuring of its business.

Jacques Dunogué, current senior executive vice president in charge of Thomson's Systems division has been appointed to lead the Thomson-owned division, replacing Marc Valentin. Dunogué, a former Alcatel executive, will lead a company that has now been divided into three business units--Broadcast & Professional Solutions, Integration and Transmission Solutions and Video Network Solutions. Each division will have its own focus and leadership team.

Jeff Rosica, current vice president, marketing and technology for Grass Valley, will lead the Broadcast & Professional business unit, reporting directly to Dunogué. Rosica will continue to lead the North American sales activities for the company. Patrick Montliaud will continue to head up the Integration and Transmission Solutions business unit, in addition to his position as the leader of the European/Rest of World activities. This unit will be responsible for Grass Valley application software, turnkey systems and transmission products.

Christophe Delahousse will continue to lead the Video Network Solutions business unit, which will be responsible for Grass Valley compression, digital mobility, IPTV, networking and signal-management products. Hiro Yamada, founder of Canopus, a Japanese developer of professional NLE technology which Grass Valley bought in 2005, will work with Grass Valley management to help drive overall architecture and technology strategies. Yamada will continue to oversee the editing, server and storage product lines within the Broadcast and Professional Solutions business unit as well as oversee commercial activities in Japan.

The changes represent the second time in the past six months that Grass Valley has restructured its global business.
