Promotions at Ross Video


Ross Video has moved to improve its sales management capacity in the USA with the promotions of both Jared Schatz and Pete Ross to Director of Sales each with responsibility for ½ the country and with the promotion of Julian Fraser to Director of Sales, Canada.

Jared Schatz moves to Director of Sales, US Central & Southern.  Jared has held various sales positions with Ross, most recently working in a national capacity as Senior Systems Sales Manager, helping put together complex systems solutions for our clients.  In addition to his deep knowledge of broadcast technology and operations, Jared’s degree in economics provides him a unique viewpoint.

Pete Ross becomes Director of Sales, US Northeast & Pacific.  Pete has been responsible for network accounts where he has grown Ross’ business substantially over the past 3 years.  Pete’s customer first approach and extensive experience in broadcast connect with Ross’ mission to provide a “superior customer experience” and make him ideally suited to guide our sales process.


“Putting enthusiastic, customer focused and technically savvy guys like Pete and Jared in charge of our sales teams in the USA will enable Ross to better deliver the creative solutions our customers have come to expect from Ross.” said Darren Budrow, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Ross Video. “Both of them have been very successful and made inspired contributions to our clients organizations and our organization here at Ross.  It is great to be able to promote from within – we have a very talented group of professionals on our team.”

Julian Fraser joined Ross Video in July 2012 as the Western Canada Regional Sales Manager, leveraging his broadcast industry experience and contacts, quickly making an impact for Ross’ clients and business partners.

“Julian has proven himself as a difference maker within our Sales Team,” said Darren Budrow, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, Ross Video. “I am thrilled to see Julian earn this key leadership role and what it means for our clients and business partners in the future.”


Prior to Ross Video, Julian worked at Applied Electronics, Ross’ largest business partner in Canada where he was responsible for the daily operations and leadership of three locations and over twenty-five staff.
