Grass Valley Names Graham Sharp To Guide Corporate Development

Grass Valley has announced the appointment of Graham Sharp as its new Senior Vice President of Corporate Development.
Sharp will be responsible for the overarching corporate strategy, M&A activity, strategic alliances, and various strategic projects. He will report directly to Alain Andreoli, President and CEO of Grass Valley.
With more than 25 years of executive management experience in the media industry, Sharp was most recently Director of Media Asset Capital and interim President and CEO of Xtranormal Inc.—an online service where users make animated movies by simply typing text and dragging icons. Prior to that he served as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Avid’s Video division, and has held Executive management positions at Post Impressions, Discreet Logic, and Dynatech Corporation. His career has come full circle, as he began working in media technology with Tektronix / Grass Valley in the 1980’s.
“Graham has a proven track record of building and changing cultures, acquiring and integrating businesses, and building shareholder value,” said Andreoli. “He brings an extensive knowledge of international business and cultures gained through living and working in Asia, Europe, Canada, and the US. He knows our business and the industry we operate in very well and we are happy to have him join our team.”
Working with Grass Valley's management team, Sharp’s first priority is to continue developing a strong growth strategy, including the assessment of potential acquisition targets.
Sharp commented: “Grass Valley has lead the industry through numerous technology transitions over the last 60 years and is uniquely positioned to do so again by driving a transition, enabled by IP technologies and infrastructure, to a non-linear production environment; where traditional workflow silo’s merge and content production moves into the Internet era. I am extremely happy and honoured to be invited to be a part of driving this transformation with the Grass Valley team.”
