MultiDyne’s chief operating offer Bob McAlpine has retired from his role, but will lead the company’s newly-formed board of directors.
McAlpine joined the company in September 2019 after a year of working with the company through broadcast industry consultancy Black Pearl Management Group LLC. He will continue to operate Black Pearl Management Group, advising MultiDyne and other industry vendors on mergers, acquisitions and global growth strategies.
“Bob was a friend to MultiDyne and a mentor to me well before he first joined the company in 2007,” said Frank Jachetta, CEO, MultiDyne. “Bob would bring industry press and prospective customers by our 10×10 booth at NAB many years ago and take us out to industry events in the evenings. He has continued to be a mentor to everyone at MultiDyne since returning, and his contributions have been essential to our evolution as a company. He will continue to play an active and important role in our evolution, including some key growth initiatives that we expect to announce later this year.”
“My time at MultiDyne as COO was without question my final full-time position, and I now have the opportunity to spend more time with family while remaining active in the industry on my terms,” said McAlpine. “Very few completely detach from the broadcast industry after spending decades within it. I look forward to working with MultiDyne in a limited capacity, and helping other companies in the industry grow and prosper.”
A new COO has not been announced.
