(Newbury, United Kingdom--May 2, 2013) Quantel is delighted to announce the appointment of John Cerquone to the position of Vice President Major Accounts in the USA. Based in Manhattan, Cerquone is responsible for Quantel's sales to the four major television networks and other large accounts. In this new role, Cerquone will ensure continued growth by creating and executing focused account strategies.
Cerquone joins Quantel from Harris Corporation, where he held the position of Regional Sales Manager covering accounts in New York and New England. Prior to this, Cerquone held senior positions with Miranda Technologies, Sony Electronics and Avid Technology.
"I'm very happy to be joining Quantel at this exciting time in the company's development," Cerquone said. "Quantel has some of the most innovative and productive technology for broadcasters and post production houses, but is perhaps not as well-known in the US as it deserves to be. I'm really looking forward to introducing one of the industry's best-kept secrets to all my contacts in the area, and helping them understand how Quantel can really benefit their operations moving forward."
"We're very pleased to have John Cerquone on board," said Martin Mulligan, Quantel Sales Director. "His track record in sales speaks for itself, and the wealth of experience and contacts John brings with him at senior levels in major accounts provides a tremendous platform for him to dynamically build our presence in this market."
