Leitch appoints new president and CEO

Leitch has appointed Timothy E. Thorsteinson as its new president and CEO.

Thorsteinson joined Leitch after leaving his position at Thomson Broadcast and Media Solutions where he led the Broadcast product line.

Formerly the president of the Video and Networking Division of Tektronix, Thorsteinson also ran the subsidiary company within that Division known as Grass Valley Group. During his tenure at Tektronix, he executed the sale of the Grass Valley Group business to a private investor group. At that transition, Thorsteinson departed Tektronix to lead the Grass Valley Group company as its CEO and COO until its acquisition by Thomson.

At Thomson Thorsteinson led the integration of the Broadcast products of Thomson, Grass Valley, and Phillips and consolidated widely dispersed R&D efforts.

Thorsteinson will be based in Toronto.
