Neerav Shah, Digital Media Veteran, Joins Grass Valley as Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing
Shah and his team will be responsible for refining Grass Valley’s product strategy and market positioning to ensure alignment with the rapidly changing needs of the global broadcast community.
“The broadcast community is undergoing a substantial shift—both in the migration to IP infrastructures and in the need for content to be delivered to multiple platforms simultaneously,” said Marco Lopez, Grass Valley’s president. “Neerav’s expertise in these areas and his ability to navigate complex technology transitions will pay real, immediate dividends for our customers and enable us to meet the changing needs of our core market.”
Shah earned an MBA from Yale, where he specialized in Strategy and Product Development. Prior to that, he completed a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at Northwestern University in Illinois as well as the Executive Management Program in Leadership, Innovation and Strategy at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business.
Shah’s appointment coincides with the creation of a key new function within Grass Valley’s executive ranks. Michael Cronk will be leading an important product development initiative called Core Technology, which will ensure Grass Valley product interoperability and consistency across the portfolio. As vice president of core technology, Cronk will continue in his role as chairman of the board for the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), helping promote and advocate for widely supported, open standards for IP in broadcast.
