Schutte Brings Extensive Sales Management and Broadcast System Integration Experience to New Role

MELVILLE, N.Y. — Feb. 3, 2011 — Chyron today announced the appointment of Gary Schutte as North American director of channel sales. Schutte joins Chyron with more than 25 years of experience in sales and management for broadcast products. In this new position, his primary responsibility will be to build Chyron’s channel sales relationships, with a particular focus on system integration partners.

“Gary’s wealth of experience in this industry over many years will be a valuable asset as we move to a more structured, disciplined channel partner program,” said Bruce Levine, vice president of North American sales at Chyron. “As he evaluates the efficiency and success of our current channel partner program, Gary will be charged not only with building new relationships, but also with driving forward successful existing channel partner relationships.”
