Omneon has announced the appointment of Niels Thomas as vice president of sales for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In this role, Thomas will be responsible for managing EMEA business for Omneon, including sales and channel strategy, market expansion, and management of the company's U.K. offices.

"Thomas is a proven leader, and he joins us at an exciting time," said Dan Marshall, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Omneon. "His diverse and strong background in the broadcast, media, and entertainment industries will extend our reach in the important EMEA market and we're looking forward to his contributions."

Thomas joins Omneon from Sony, where he was general manager for direct sales within the broadcast and professional products division for the last five years and also was responsible for broadcast equipment sales from 1988 to 2000. In between the Sony assignments, he was sales director at Grass Valley and Thomson.

Thomas will be based in the U.K. and will report to Marshall.
