Cincinnati, OH (September 19, 2005)–Harris Corporation’s Broadcast Communications Division (BCD) has added three new district sales managers to its domestic radio field sales team in order to capitalize on the continued growth of HD Radio.
The new district sales managers will address opportunities in each of three U.S. sales regions and will report to Roland Eid, director, North American Sales. Lynn Turner will manage sales within the mid-Atlantic region, Lyle Garrison will serve customers in Texas and Oklahoma, and Andy Cole will manage sales within five states in the southern U.S.
“As U.S. radio broadcasters transition to HD Radio, Harris is adding three new district sales managers, enabling us to provide improved, more personalized service throughout each U.S. region,” said Eid. “Lynn Turner, Lyle Garrison, and Andy Cole are all exceptionally qualified and enthusiastic about representing Harris’ radio product line from the studio to the transmitter, and will serve as valuable resources for customers in their respective regions. We are pleased to announce the expansion of our Domestic Radio Field Sales team with these three talented, motivated individuals.”
Turner has been assigned as district sales manager for the Mid-Atlantic region, including Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C. With 22 years experience in electronics, RF, and telecommunications technologies, Garrison now represents Harris BCD’s Radio Broadcast Systems business unit as district sales manager for Oklahoma and Texas, formerly states combined into a larger sales district. Cole’s experience includes two years as a broadcast specialist in the Harris Broadcast Center, with a focus on inside sales. He moves to outside sales in his new position as district sales manager for Alabama, Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas.
