Utah Scientific has appointed Carl Gardner as director of sales for its new UTAH-100 Professional Products Series, a range of products suited for smaller broadcasters and non-broadcast facilities. In his new position, Gardner will be responsible for establishing and maintaining distribution channels to make the product line readily available to customers.
“Carl’s strong background in developing, managing, and maintaining distribution channels as well as his particular organizational skills make him the right person to get our Professional Products line established,” said Tom Harmon, Utah Scientific president and CEO, in a statement.
Gardner has worked in the broadcast equipment manufacturing industry for 25 years, including time spent as a product manager with Utah Scientific in the mid 1990s. He returned to Utah Scientific after five years as a general manager of U.S. sales for Sigma Electronics, where he oversaw both direct and distribution-channel sales.
“Most of my professional career has been spent working with secondary distribution channels, and I thoroughly enjoy that,” said Gardner. “As far as rejoining Utah, I share the company’s philosophy that customer service comes first.”
Scheduled to launch at the 2009 NAB Show, the UTAH-100 Professional Products Series is targeted at the growing market for professional-quality solutions in smaller broadcast and non-broadcast facilities. The series includes fixed-frame and modular routers and distribution amplifiers for all signal types, including 3G HD, and a full-featured sync and test signal generator with options to suit a wide variety of professional video applications.
