Dielectric Ups Pelletier To Presidential Role


He’s a 25-year veteran of Dielectric and has served as VP/GM of the RF antenna and system manufacturer since Sinclair Broadcast Group acquired the Raymond, Me.-based company in 2013.

Now, he’s being promoted to the top role.

Keith Pelletier has been named President. He succeeds Andy Whiteside, who is retiring this summer.

Whiteside said of Pelletier, “Keith has in-depth engineering and manufacturing experience coupled with strong leadership skills and excellent rapport with Dielectric’s customer base. Keith recognized early on the unprecedented demands that the US Spectrum Repack would place on the industry, and drove his team to develop and implement the innovative engineering and manufacturing process changes that resulted in Dielectric providing over 85% of the TV antennas to the Repack program – a key factor in ensuring the timely success of the Repack effort.”

Pelletier commented, “I am looking forward to leading the company into the future. Dielectric will continue to embrace change and lead efforts to stay on the cutting edge of technology and manufacturing while solving broadcasters’ future RF needs.”
