Burland Succeeds Harmon At Utah Scientific


After 15 years as President of Utah Scientific, Tom Harmon has announced his retirement.

Come Jan. 1, 2018, a change in command will transpire, elevating the current COO and EVP/Finance into Harmon’s soon-to-be former role.

That would be Dave Burland, a 28-year veteran of the broadcast technology industry who  served in senior management roles for Quanta Corporation, Dynatech Video Group, and Vela Corporation prior to his 16-year tenure at Utah Scientific.

Harmon will remain active with Utah Scientific as chairman of the board.

Utah Scientific is known for its video routers, master control switchers, and related control software.

“It’s been a fantastic ride,” said Harmon. “I can’t think of a better professional to take over the reins than Dave. After more than 20 years of working closely with Dave, he really understands what makes our company tick, and I’m completely confident he’ll be able to take Utah Scientific to new levels of success in the coming years. I look forward to working with Dave, the board, and the rest of our executive team to ensure a smooth transition.”

Burland added, “During his tenure here, Tom has shepherded Utah Scientific through plenty of changes in the broadcast landscape — from analog to digital media and now the migration to all-IP workflows. We’re delighted that he’s agreed to stay on as chairman and continue to serve as a valuable consulting resource for our team.”
