GatesAir Gets a Chief Revenue Officer


GatesAir, the company known for its delivery of TV and radio broadcast signals to consumers worldwide, has promoted from within to take on the role of Chief Revenue Officer.

It sees a 35-year broadcast veteran take ownership of global sales activity, with all regional sales leaders across GatesAir’s four global regions reporting to him.

Joe Mack is taking the post, reporting to CEO Bruce Swail.

He’s a company veteran, who was named VP/Sales, Americas upon the 2014 formation of GatesAir, born out of the former Harris Corp.

Mack initially came to Harris through the acquisition of Midwest Communication in 1990. Before that, he specialized in the development of instant news production and campaigned satellite flyaway terminals around the world for major global broadcasting networks, including BBC; Canada’s CTV; and CBS, ABC and NBC; and for Hearst.

“Joe has demonstrated a sharp sense of relationship building and customer commitment over his decades at Harris and GatesAir, which has resulted in record sales levels for our radio and television transmission businesses,” Swail said. “Above all, he has proven to be an exceptional leader over his career, with a diverse background in sales, management
and engineering that has contributed to his success.”

Mack added, “Having worked directly within the transmission business for 30 years, this is a business I am intimately familiar with and understand on a worldwide scale. I look forward to leading GatesAir’s global sales initiatives and building a foundation for our future business success.”
