The Advanced Television Systems Committee Inc. has named Madeleine Noland as the new ATSC President effective May 15th of this year. She will succeed Mark Richer, who announced his plan to retire after leading the standards development organization for 20 of its 35 years.
Noland, senior technology and standards advisor for LG Electronics, currently chairs the ATSC technology group that oversees the ATSC 3.0 next-generation broadcast standard. Well-known and widely respected for her consensus-building leadership style, Noland has chaired various ATSC 3.0-related specialist groups, ad hoc groups and implementation teams since 2012.
“I am humbled and honored to follow in Mark Richer’s footsteps, and I look forward with great enthusiasm to working with the talented ATSC Board and the hundreds of ATSC volunteer leaders. This is a critical time for the organization as Next Gen TV powered by ATSC 3.0 is commercialized in the months and years ahead,” said Nolan.
