Borrelli Steps Down as NEP Broadcasting CEO
By Ken Kerschbaumer
Lou Borrelli, who has served as CEO of NEP Broadcasting since 2005, is leaving the company as of Feb. 1 due to family health matters. “I loved my time at NEP, and the company has more than doubled in size in the past four years, and that was due to a great team where everyone played a part in the success,” he says. “But it has become hard to commit to what was needed at home and in the business.”
Borrelli will remain a significant shareholder and will continue to root for the company to be successful. “NEP is a terrific company with a great balance sheet,” he adds. “And they have great partners in American Securities who
remain committed to the company.”
Debbie Honkus, NEP Supershooters founder and director, will serve as interim CEO.
Borrelli also played a key role within Sports Video Group, as his experience working with cable-TV–related associations made him an ideal sounding board for launching the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame, figuring out issues to focus on during SVG events, and representing the interests of the remote-production industry.
Borrelli, who has become a mainstay in the truck compounds behind the scenes at some of the larger events NEP has supported, is wasting no time in shifting to his new role. This weekend, NEP will have nearly 30 production units in Tampa for Super Bowl XLIII, but Borrelli will be home in Connecticut with his family.
“I will be very happy to watch a terrific Super Bowl in HD on NBC with great pictures provided by ND3, ND4, SS24, Denali, and more of our units,” says Borrelli.
