The former Americas sales manager for EVS Broadcast Equipment has been selected for the role of VP/Strategic Accounts for the eastern U.S. at Burbank, Calif.-based Riedel Communications.
Phil Stein (pictured) will report directly to Riedel North America President/CEO Joyce Bente, and is responsible for expanding Riedel’s market presence among high-profile accounts in the eastern half of the nation.
Stein arrived at EVS after serving as a broadcast coordinator for the National Hockey League, where he was a director, technical director, camera operator, assistant director, and Chyron operator for the NHL LIVE! program.
He also served as producer and editor for the NHL’s “Winter Classic” pre- and post-game coverage.
Bente said, “Phil is an outstanding addition to our team, and he’ll be a tremendous asset as we continue to expand Riedel’s installed base among the largest media, entertainment, and enterprise brands in the U.S. Phil has a proven track record building trusted relationships with key accounts at EVS, and he also combines that sales expertise with experience working hands-on with advanced broadcast equipment. That’s a winning combination, and it sends a strong signal to our customers that Riedel understands their technical requirements.”
Stein will be joining Riedel leaders at IBC2017 in Amsterdam. Riedel’s stand is 10.A31.
