Harris Corporation Expands Radio Broadcast Sales Team in Canada; Names 20-Year Industry Veteran Sean East Regional Sales Manager


Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has expanded its Canadian Radio Broadcast sales team, naming industry veteran Sean East regional sales manager for the region. In his new role, East will report to Chris Pannell, director of North American radio sales, and focus on Harris transmission sales throughout Canada.

East joins an already strong team of radio industry veterans on the Harris Radio Broadcast sales team, including Al Jason (district sales manager, northwestern U.S. region), Terry Becht (district sales manager, southern central U.S. region) and a large group of new channel partners in the U.S. and Canada.

“Sean brings a wealth of sales experience to our team, and his well-established reputation in Canada will help us increase our presence as a full-service radio technology supplier throughout the country,” said Pannell. “Sean also brings a tremendous amount of RF engineering knowledge to his position, which will be a valuable asset as he builds relationships with new and existing Harris customers across Canada.”

East began his broadcast career in engineering, working with SPL, a broadcast engineering company. He most recently was Canadian sales manager and international sales manager for Larcan, Inc., where he worked for eight years. Prior to that, East served as audio/RF Canadian sales manager for Applied Electronics for five years.

“My main goal is to build on Harris Corporation’s reputation as a company that will be here for the long haul, especially as Canada inches closer to digital radio,” said East. “Harris is well positioned to take a leadership position in this market in the next few years with the technology we offer.”

East will sell the entire line of Harris radio broadcast products, with a focus on transmission, including analog AM/FM, HD Radio™, and DAB transmitters. He is based in Toronto and can be reached at 416-722-7174.
