Gearhouse Broadcast Australia Appoints New Sales Director

Manny Papas Tasked With Developing Market Presence at Leading Australian Outside Broadcast Company

Leading Australian outside broadcast (OB) and broadcast service company, Gearhouse Broadcast, has announced the appointment of Manny Papas as Sales Director. Papas joined Gravity Media – Gearhouse Broadcast’s parent company – in April 2011 as Business Development Manager and his new role is effective immediately.

Prior to joining Gravity Media, Papas was formerly Global Sales Director at Charter / Charter Presteigne where he worked for over 10 years.

In his new role, Papas joins Gearhouse Broadcast’s Australian Executive Management Team. Working closely with Graham Elliot (CEO) and Fraser McWilliam (Director of Finance), he will be tasked with building on the company’s already strong market presence.


In Australia, Gearhouse Broadcast is one of the leading OB companies with bases in Sydney and Melbourne. Operating the country’s most advanced high definition (HD) OB vehicle fleet, the company services the Australian sports and entertainment markets: customer contracts include AFL Football, A-League, Rugby Union and Australia’s Got Talent.

Regarded by Gearhouse Broadcast as a key strategic appointment aimed at further strengthening its market position in Australia, Manny Papas brings a wealth of broadcast industry experience gained in a career that spans three decades. During this time he has been involved in many major broadcast projects from Olympic and Winter Olympic Games to FIFA World Cup finals, Rugby World Cups and numerous Australian Open Tennis tournaments.


“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Manny Papas within this high profile role,” commented Graham Elliot, CEO of Gearhouse Broadcast Australia. “Manny joins a strong management team and brings a wealth of experience gained in Australia and also in many international markets.
