Former president Marco Lopez has left the company to pursue other opportunities
As 2018 begins, Grass Valley will be guided by a new president—Timothy Shoulders, a member of the Belden team since 2011.
Shoulders was appointed president effective January 1, transitioning from his previous role as vice president and general manager of Belden’s global Industrial Cable business. Prior to that, he gained valuable insights into the broadcast industry as leader of Belden’s global Broadcast Cables business following a stint in the company’s Enterprise Connectivity platform. Shoulders will report directly to Roel Vestjens, president, Industrial Solutions & Broadcast IT for Belden. Former president Marco Lopez has left the company to pursue other opportunities.
“Tim’s ability to successfully drive the Belden Broadcast and AV business as well as the Industrial Cable business over recent years makes him the right person to lead Grass Valley as we look ahead to an exciting time of growth and continued transition in the industry,” says Vestjens.
“He has a unique ability to influence internal processes that enhance the customer experience by reducing or eliminating barriers to effective communication. An open and collaborative relationship with our customers is critical as we navigate business and technology changes in the market together.”
Shoulders has an extensive background in finance and accounting, including managing corporate finance functions and forecasting and reporting for large, diverse businesses. During his time with Belden, he’s led numerous M&A projects, integrations and cross-business initiatives, gaining expertise in the Belden Business System. He will be based in Grass Valley’s worldwide headquarters in Montreal.
