Meriden, CT (United States), December 19, 2017 — Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global designer and manufacturer of total-package solutions for wireless and broadcast infrastructure, today announced the appointment of broadcast and telecommunications industry veteran Eddy Vanderkerken as director of broadcast sales. Vanderkerken, who brings more than 30 years of consultative sales and sales management experience for capital equipment in highly technological markets, will lead the company’s effort to support North American broadcasters’ transition to new channels during the U.S. broadcast television spectrum repacking program.
Throughout his career Vanderkerken has proven to be a collaborative team leader adept at achieving significant growth in the sales of Test and Measurement equipment and systems, EMI/EMC instrumentation and shielded/anechoic rooms, turnkey projects, RF and microwave, radio communications, telecommunications, audio, TV, video, broadcast T&M, broadcast transmission and Mobile TV equipment. He has distinguished himself in high-level sales positions at Teledyne LeCroy Inc. and Rohde & Schwarz. Most recently, he applied his cumulative experience to source RF, video, TV and broadcast T&M products to U.S. customers as president of Sourcerer LLC., his own entrepreneurial venture.
“Mr. Vanderkerken’s background tackling a broad range of sales tasks and enabling his employers to achieve and maintain market leadership in rapidly evolving technology markets is exactly what we are looking for to advance RFS as a leader in the broadcast infrastructure market,” Ray Bibisi, Vice President, North American Sales, RFS. “Under Mr. Vanderkerken’s direction, we expect RFS to continue to gain traction as the go-to partner for all steps of the broadcast infrastructure process, providing end-to-end solutions that begin with guiding the selection of appropriate equipment to assure future-proof installation performance.”
