Experienced RF Specialist Will Lead EMG Connectivity in North America
Paris, 21 February 2023 – Europe’s leading broadcast service provider EMG today announced the appointment of accomplished industry executive Nathan Spencer as CEO of EMG Connectivity in the USA. Nathan will lead the expansion and strategy of EMG’s RF and wireless camera execution in the North American market, develop its roadmap, and be responsible for recruiting a world class delivery team in the United States.
He will have a particular focus on the further development and market penetration of RF, 5G, and other connectivity services in which EMG specialises. EMG Connectivity is the business unit into which all of EMG’s RF services have recently been consolidated. Nathan will be based at EMG’s American HQ at the Trilith Studios near Atlanta, GA.
Nathan Spencer, EMG Connectivity USA said: “I’m excited to be joining an established market leader like EMG. I have known the company for many years and worked extensively with the team at EMG Connectivity UK (formerly known as Broadcast RF). The North American market offers a lot of potential for a specialist like EMG Connectivity. The know-how of the teams broadcasting the Tour de France and the London Marathon will prove very useful in the coming years, and I believe that with my experience of the USA market I can make a big contribution”.
Nathan began his broadcast career in the UK in 1992 where he specialised in RF productions and has been active in the United States for many years where he has made a name for himself in both the film and television industries. More recently, Nathan worked as a Remote Operations Manager involved in business development as well as field support and as EIC for major events across North America like the NFL, College Football, MLS, Super Bowl, Triathlons, Marathons and Cycle Races. Nathan is a member of the International Cinematographers Guild in Los Angeles and has worked on many Hollywood movies such as ‘The Avengers’, ‘Inception’, ‘Mission Impossible 4’ and ‘The Bourne Legacy’.
Shaun Gregory, CEO, EMG, said: “Nathan will work with the rest of our RF colleagues around the world to ensure EMG remains a leader in wireless and RF innovation. Our roots are in Europe, but we operate all over the world for many major international projects. In North America, we see a lot of growth potential supported by the arrival of many major international events such as the new Formula One races, the 2026 FIFA World Cup and the 2028 LA Olympics. We would therefore like to make our exceptional RF knowledge and expertise available to our current and new customers in the USA. We wish Nathan every success in his new role.”
Bruno Gallais, MD EMG Connectivity / CEO EMG France, said: “To maintain our market leading global position in RF broadcast, we needed a specialist in the USA with industry experience, deep engineering knowledge, robust decision making and vision. We have found that in Nathan, and we are excited to see how he can support EMG Connectivity in continuing to deliver cutting edge technical excellence in RF.
