Margaret Craig, president and CEO of Leitch, said: "With Robert's proven track record of growing sales and Laura's consistent success in driving worldwide marketing programs, Leitch is well-positioned to strengthen our overall market presence.
"These new appointments, combined with an impressive line-up of new products for NAB, will secure Leitch's leadership position in the minds of our customers."
