Quantel Promotes Ray Cross to CEO

Ray Cross has been promoted to CEO of Quantel as part of a strategic initiative to speed up the deployment of its generationQ technology.

As part of the initiative, Richard Taylor, who served as chairman and chief executive and Paul Kellar, director, research and development, will step down from their operational roles. Brian Paisley and Martin Mulligan will continue to lead the broadcast and post/DI divisions, respectively.

"Richard and Paul have successfully navigated Quantel practically from its birth in the mid 70s right through to the launch of the current generationQ range of products," Cross said. "This is a terrific accomplishment and the company and our customers owe them a debt of gratitude for the strength of their vision. Our focus is now one hundred percent on ensuring that we deliver the full potential of generationQ technology to the widest possible market."
