Gearhouse Broadcast USA has announced the appointment of Michael Harabin as its president.

Harabin joins from Pac-12 Networks, where he has worked for the past six years, most recently as VP Production Operations. He will oversee Gearhouse Broadcast's North American operation, which has been the focus of heavy investment over the past year, after parent company Gravity Media Group (GMG) received substantial funding from TowerBrook Capital Partners in September 2016. This has already resulted in the launch of three mobile broadcast and production units and several senior hires in the region.

Harabin arrives with over 30 years of experience in leading operational and technical media organizations in North America. Prior to joining Pac-12 Networks in 2012 as VP Engineering, Technology & Media Management, he held senior and operational positions at the Tennis Channel, RAI Corporation, DIRECTV and NBC. A member of SMPTE, SBE, SVG and NATAS, Michael has also sat on the customer advisory boards at Reach Engine and Dalet. He earned an MBA at Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business and Management.

Discussing the appointment, Kevin Moorhouse, chief operating officer of Gravity Media Group, said: "Michael has the ideal blend of gravitas, contacts and experience of implementing new technologies to lead and further grow our US operation. He was instrumental in driving technological innovation and new highly efficient content production and publishing models for the Pac-12 Networks. Michael has extensive operational knowledge when it comes to remote production and cloud-based end-to-end solutions. I've been impressed by his foresight and his ability to find smart technical and production solutions will enable us to offer a wider range of services to our clients in the region."

Harabin added: "I'm very excited to be joining such an ambitious business that provides high levels of service and innovative solutions to standing issues and new opportunities. I look forward to working alongside the talented team already in place to deliver Gearhouse's innovative services to clients, as they work to generate measurable efficiencies and optimize return on investments."

Over the past 12 months, Gearhouse Broadcast USA has deployed Columbus, its 4K mobile unit, and two multi-purpose mobile production units; Skye and Iona. It has also announced several key appointments including sales and business development manager Adrina Madatyan and senior sales manager Stan Leshner.
