Quantel Shuffles Broadcast, Sales Teams

Quantel has announced a trio of new appointments to its executive team. Kristin McCall has been brought on as a Broadcast Product Specialist for Quantel’s North American operations; Robin Adams has been named Director of Sales, Asia Pacific; and Mike Grieve has been appointed Director of Sales, EMEA.

McCall will be responsible for presenting Quantel’s Enterprise sQ broadcast solutions, with particular emphasis on Sports, 3D and News applications. Kristin joins Quantel from ESPN, where she was a senior editor and part of the creative development program. McCall is an accomplished editor and also an experienced broadcast motion graphics designer.

“The chance to work with the best of the best was just too good to miss,” says McCall. “Having worked with Quantel broadcast technology on the front line for a number of years, I have watched it get better and better – and getting involved in the emerging business of 3D sports production with Quantel technology is very exciting. QTube also presents the industry with a fantastic opportunity to globalize its workflows. I’m looking forward to showing customers all over North America a huge new range of possibilities that Quantel technology is opening up for them.”

Adams looked after systems sales and marketing in EMEA for Autodesk for a number of years, and joins Quantel after a spell at The Foundry where he was in charge of Sales into EMEA, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. In his new role, Adams will oversee Quantel’s continued expansion of its post and broadcast sales into some of the world’s most dynamically growing markets.

Grieve joins Quantel from Filmlight, where he was Sales Director. The appointment is part of Quantel’s aggressive expansion program in the region.
