Mr. Strong will coordinate engineering, marketing, and business development efforts for the US subsidiary.
Mr. Strong will bring more than 20 years of experience in the communications industry to help grow the Televes brand in the US. In his new role, Mr. Strong will work closely with Javier Ruano, General Manager of Televes USA as well as the executive, engineering, sales, and marketing teams at the parent company to develop new equipment and to tailor existing Televes products as needed for the US market.
Steve Strong says: “This is an exciting time for Televes USA and I’m happy to have the opportunity to help dramatically grow the company’s presence in the US. Televes has a very broad range of products and an outstanding reputation in Europe. I’m looking forward to help extend our offering to both existing and new customers here in the States.”
Televes recently presented new products such as the H60 Advanced HDTV System Analyzer and T.0X line of commercial video and data headend equipment at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando.
Mr. Strong added “I’ve used the predecessor to the H60, the H45, as a customer in the past, and found it to be a very versatile tool for headend installations as well as diagnosing problems in most any broadband distribution system. I also think we have a real winner with the T.0X family providing not only traditional QAM RF distribution but RFoG fiber optic capabilities as well. These combined with a host of other broadband distribution products, antennas, and meters position us well for rapid growth.”
