Dielectric has appointed Dan Glavin to the role of Western Region sales manager.
Glavin steps into the role immediately, with responsibility for all U.S. TV and FM sales and customer service west of the Mississippi River. He reports to Jay Martin, Dielectric’s VP of Sales.
Glavin joined Dielectric in 2018 as an electrical engineer, with emphasis on system design, data analysis and antenna testing. He led technical development initiatives and field installations for RFHawkeye, an IP-based RF monitoring system. His ability to clearly communicate technical concepts led to invitations for industry speaking engagements, and ultimately the appointment to this sales role.
“Dan will be a strong mediator who can communicate complex technical requirements between our customers and internal Dielectric engineers,” said Martin. “His fluency in Spanish will benefit the Hispanic communities we serve, and his experience across site logistics, off-air challenges and other common over-the-air issues will benefit all customers.”
Glavin looks forward to assisting customers with the unique challenges of specifying antennas and RF systems, adding that his design engineering experience will provide strong guidance in determining the appropriate solution for each broadcaster.
“The expansion and integration of ATSC 3.0 broadcast systems, single-frequency networks, and investment in public television and radio all represent exciting opportunities for business development throughout the western US region,” said Glavin. “Every opportunity comes down to helping broadcasters achieve their goals through cost-effective and efficient implementation, while delivering robust designs and products that offer long-term value.”
He replaces Steven Moreen, who retires following a 52-year career in the broadcast industry. Moreen’s nearly lifelong love of broadcasting began as a Ham radio enthusiast in 1967, and he landed his first job in commercial broadcasting as a high school student in 1969.
“Please join us in congratulating Steve on his retirement from Dielectric,” said Keith Pelletier, vice president and general manager of Dielectric. “We wish him all the best as he enters the next chapter of a diverse and fulfilling life.
