He has a proven track record of operational success within the industry and a vision that will keep Harris at the cutting edge of product innovation and customer responsiveness. ..."

Thorsteinson, 52, joined Leitch Technology Corp. as president and CEO in November 2003. Prior to joining Leitch, Thorsteinson was vice president of Grass Valley products for Thomson Broadcast and Media Solutions, where he was responsible for the Broadcast product line. Previously, he served as president and CEO of the Grass Valley Group, a subsidiary company within Tektronix Inc. until its acquisition by Thomson. Thorsteinson was with Tektronix from 1991 to 2001.
