Fortel DTV has appointed Andy Chan, former CEO of Future Networks, as chairman and CEO. The company has also been reorganized into two business units: broadcast products and OEM and licensing to expand its broadcast product line and test new technology in high growth markets.

Minton O'Neal was named manager of broadcast products, and Karl Parandjuk will be the new general manager of OEM, licensing and new markets. Chan replaces Fortel's founder and former CEO, Virgil Lowe, who will assume the role of president and chief technology officer.
