Harris Broadcast Appoints Charlie Vogt CEO

Harris Broadcast today appointed Charlie Vogt as CEO of the organization. The 25-year information technology and communications leader joins Harris Broadcast following nine years as President and CEO of GENBAND where he led a company transformation that encompassed six acquisitions, including Tekelec SSG, NextPoint Networks and Nortel's VoIP Business.

Through successful organic innovation, attention to operational integration and relentless focus on customers, GENBAND became no. 1 in VoIP and delivered a compound annual growth rate of ~100 percent during his tenure.

"Charlie's proven track record of taking companies with powerful and promising technology to the next level uniquely positions him to lead this business," said Carl Vogel, Harris Broadcast Chairman and board member of Dish Network. "His decision to join Harris Broadcast as President and CEO likewise reflects the promise and potential behind the company's market-leading technology, marquee customers and exceptional employees. Charlie will bring to Harris Broadcast vision, leadership, creativity and operational discipline as well as an entrepreneurial and customer-first culture."

Mr. Vogel added: "The radio and TV broadcasting industry is embarking on a significant transformation from digital to IP. Charlie was a natural choice as his IP domain knowledge and experience gained while assisting global service providers and cable operators transition to IP has uniquely prepared him to lead the company as this industry undergoes a similar trajectory. We thank Harris Morris for his contributions in guiding Harris Broadcast as we acquired the business and transitioned the company to independence – we wish him well as he pursues new opportunities."

With a substantial patent portfolio, eight Technical and Engineering Emmy Awards and a strategic global support presence in 36 countries, Harris Broadcast solutions are at the forefront of enabling radio, television and media networks around the world to compete in today's multiformat, multichannel and multiplatform market.

"I couldn't be more enthusiastic about joining Harris Broadcast, especially at a time when broadcasters, cable networks and multi-channel content distributors are experiencing so much change – from the impact of on-demand to content delivery on multiple screens and the digital transition to video and audio over IP," said Mr. Vogt. "I have spent my professional career building businesses, fostering an entrepreneurial culture and introducing disruptive technologies that transform business models. I look forward to leading the Harris Broadcast team to accelerate innovation in areas that will enable the company to experience market-leading growth."
