Blackmagic Design Names Dan May President; Relocates U.S. Office

Blackmagic Design has appointed Dan May as president of the company. May joins Blackmagic as the company begins the relocation of its U.S. corporate headquarters from Las Vegas to Milpitas, Calif. All operations currently handled by the Las Vegas office will be transferred to Milpitas.

"Our move to the Silicon Valley from Nevada is an extremely exciting opportunity for us and will enable us to have stronger ties with our alliance partners," said Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic Design. "We welcome Dan to the team and are confident his talent and strong sales skills will enable us to move forward and into new markets and opportunities."

May comes to Blackmagic Design from Inlet Technology, where he joined the company in 2005 as director of sales. Prior to Inlet, May was responsible for sales and distribution channels for Canopus's video technology solutions. May is a frequent contributor at industry forums and on panels.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to join a company with such a strong reputation as has Blackmagic Design, and I'm looking to being part of a team that's changing the post-production industry," said May.
