T-VIPS Adds McCluskey to Head Up Western Regional Sales
IP-based video transport provider T-VIPS America has named John McCluskey as Director of Western Regional Sales. With over 14 years of technical sales experience in the video compression and transmission arena, McCluskey is entrusted with expanding T-VIPS America’s market share in 14 Western U.S. states and Vancouver, Canada.
In this position, McCluskey’s responsibilities include the management of key accounts, increasing sales in the region, as well as maintaining solid relationships with area business partners and systems integrators.
McCluskey reports directly to T-VIPS America’s VP and GM Joe LoGrasso. “We’re extremely pleased to welcome John to our U.S. sales team,” LoGrasso says. “With his extensive professional experience, management abilities, and knowledge of the Western U.S. sales territory, John is uniquely qualified to lead and expand our sales efforts in this region. We’re also looking to strengthen our ties with T-VIPS business partners and dealers, and John’s got an impeccable record of working successfully with many of our current partners.”
“I’m thrilled to join the T-VIPS sales team and to help the company seize new opportunities,” says McCluskey, based in Aliso Viejo, (Orange County), CA. “As the broadcast and postproduction industries migrate from satellite and telco networks to IP network-based video transmission, T-VIPS is poised for growth because our solutions allow IP network transport, while preserving the pristine image quality that demanding video applications require.”
McCluskey assumed his new T-VIPS role on January 3, 2011 after serving as Director of Western Regional Sales for Miranda Technologies. Prior to his time with Miranda, McCluskey rose through the ranks of TANDBERG Television and NDS. His last position with TANDBERG was Account Manager, Western Region USA for TANDBERG Television.
