Anton/Bauer names new president

Camera and lighting power source supplier Anton/Bauer has named Dan Fitzpatrick to lead the company as its new president. Fitzpatrick, a veteran of the healthcare industry, was chosen to lead Anton/Bauer into new markets, in addition to supporting the broadcast and professional video production communities. Fitzpatrick succeeds Michael Accardi, who served as Anton/Bauer's president since 2008.

Matt Danilowicz, CEO of the Vitec Videocom division, under which Anton Bauer operates, said Fitzpatrick's experience in healthcare technology "will help us foster our aspirations to expand Anton/Bauer into ancillary markets, while his extensive background in sales, marketing and product development will ensure further strengthening of Anton/Bauer's position as the leader in broadcast and cinematography batteries."

With more than 25 years in the healthcare technology industry, Fitzpatrick has held leadership roles in many North American healthcare technology companies, where he gained extensive skills in building and managing sales groups.
