Phil Argyris (pictured) takes over at the tech company as of August 20. Argyris lead the former transmission division of Harris Broadcast. Prior to joining GatesAir, Argyris served in senior management roles at Harris Corporation and Harris Broadcast, including Human Resources, GM of the then-former GatesAir over-the-air business unit, and executive VP of R&D, product line management and marketing at Harris Broadcast.
Outgoing CEO Charlie Vogt said, ?On March 17th, we created Imagine Communications and GatesAir from the former Harris Broadcast. Since then, I have been leading both companies as CEO. We have implemented a universally transparent technology vision, product direction, and strategy for Imagine Communications and GatesAir. Appointing Phil CEO of GatesAir is optimal timing, particularly as the broadcast industry accelerates its conversion from analog to digital in many emerging countries around the world, and as the United States wireless spectrum repack nears.?
