Grass Valley Adds Arnaud de Lagabbe to European Solutions Team

Arnaud de Lagabbe joined Grass Valley at the beginning of April 2012

Reflecting the growing importance of IT in the broadcast world, Grass Valley™ has brought in a leading IT solutions expert to add to its European capabilities. Arnaud de Lagabbe brings experience in consulting, IT, and media to his new role as sales manager for southern Europe.

Arnaud de Lagabbe started his career in IT, first with the consultancy and research group Gartner. Later he was highly successful in strategic alliance and partnership management with Sun MicroSystems before spotting the potential of the broadcast and media sector. In 2007, he joined the EMEA enterprise accounts team at Avid, developing strong skills in converged solutions which he now brings to Grass Valley in his new role. His territory at Avid included Spain, Italy, and France – he speaks French and Spanish, as well as English – and is already immersed in the media business in his new role at Grass Valley.
