SALT LAKE CITY — July 21, 2009 — Utah Scientific, a leading provider of routing and master control switchers for the broadcast and professional A/V markets, today announced the appointment of Dave Diels to a newly created position, regional sales manager for the northwestern United States and western Canada.
"Utah Scientific has an outstanding reputation for product reliability and personal support," said Diels, whose responsibilities will include expanding sales with new and existing customers, as well as developing dealer networks. "My goal is to play a significant role in leveraging the company's reputation, engineering heritage, and software expertise to provide state-of-the-art routing solutions to the marketplace."
Diels' post is a new one, resulting from Utah's decision to divide its western territory in response to sales expansion. Gary LaMunyan will continue to manage sales in southern California, southern Nevada, and Alaska.
With 32 years of experience in the broadcast industry, Diels comes to Utah Scientific most recently from Pro-Bel (now Snell), where he also served as northwest regional sales manager. Previously, he was western area sales manager for DG FastChannel™/Pathfire and northwest regional sales manager for Miranda Technologies. Diels has also served as director of sales for FrameRate Corporation and MT&T Group, a reseller of high-end broadcast and post-production equipment.
"Dave is a great addition to the Utah Scientific team," said Tom Harmon, president and CEO of Utah Scientific. "His knowledge of the technology and the region, as well as his experience, communication skills, work ethic, and integrity, will serve our customers well."
At Utah Scientific, Diels will manage sales for Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, northern California, northern Nevada, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, as well as Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, and British Columbia. He joined Utah Scientific this month and reports to Steve Monsen, Utah Scientific director of sales operations.
