Raymond, Maine (December 21, 2015) – Jay Martin, one of the broadcast industry’s most respected experts in RF systems design and implementation, is returning to his roots as Dielectric’s VP of Sales.

A veteran of more than three decades in the industry, Mr. Martin returns to Dielectric, and Maine, after a number of years in key positions with global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist Radio Frequency Systems (RFS). His roles at RFS included serving as the company’s President of Australian operations.

Mr. Martin’s motivations for returning to Dielectric are both professional and personal. “I am excited to be moving back to Dielectric, where I spent 23 years of my professional career,” he said. “I am looking forward to once again being a member of the innovative, professional, and dedicated Dielectric team with whom I have so much history and shared vision.”

Mr. Martin added, “My heart has always been in Maine. I was born and raised there. My family continues to grow, and I look forward to being closer to them.”

A proven leader in the industry, Mr. Martin excels at building technical relationships and anticipating the direction of the market. His presence at Dielectric will be invaluable as the FCC Repack and ATSC 3.0 technology proceed. As Dielectric Vice President/General Manager Keith Pelletier put it, “Jay Martin’s past activities within Dielectric were key factors in making us the dominant supplier to the US and North American markets.”

Mr. Pelletier continued, “Dielectric is committed to growing its core strengths and capabilities, domestically and internationally, and this hire certainly underscores that commitment. It is arguably one of the strongest hiring moves in our 74-year history.” In addition to positioning Dielectric for the Repack and ATSC 3.0, Jay’s market knowledge and experience will enable Dielectric to continue its growth in current International and FM markets.
