Grass Valley Introduces New Team in the CALA Region

MONTREAL, July 12, 2017 — Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, welcomes Nahuel Villegas, Fernando David, Fernando Manfrini, and Manuel Martinez to the Caribbean And Latin America (CALA) region team. David, sales director, Brazil; Manfrini, sales director, Mexico and Caribbean And Central America (CACA); and Martinez, sales director, Rest of South America (ROSA) will work under the leadership of Villegas, vice president, CALA, to run the Grass Valley business in that region.

Each of the new CALA team members has more than 20 years' experience in the industry and a great deal of experience in turning around and growing the former and extinct Harris Broadcast Division to one of the biggest players in the CALA region.

"I think I speak for the entire team when I say that we're very excited to take on this new opportunity with Grass Valley," said Villegas. "The ability to work with such talented individuals at a company that's consistently developing industry-leading solutions is one opportunity I couldn't pass up. I look forward to working together to continue building Grass Valley's already large presence in the Caribbean and Latin American region."

"The vitality of the Caribbean and Latin American region represents a big opportunity for Grass Valley, but in order to harness the energy of this market we needed the right team with the right experience," said Stephen Stubelt, senior vice president, sales and marketing. "Nahuel's contributions over the past several months, and moving forward, stand to improve service for CALA customers and solidify Grass Valley's presence in the region."

Villegas, David, Manfrini and Martinez joined Grass Valley at the beginning of this year, coming together to energize the CALA team and provide Grass Valley users in CALA with a better and improved customer and service experience.
