Laszlo Zoltan, the CEO of TV/OTT equipment supplier DVEO, has died at the age of 73.
In a statement, the firm said Zoltan had passed away following a short illness and would be deeply missed by his family, friends, co-workers, and the broadcasting/tech community at large.
Zoltan, known to friends and colleagues as Les, has begun his tech career at Tektronix before enrolling in McGill University’s MBA program. He later went on to take marketing and sales rolls at Matrox, AMD, and Intel, before founding Computer Modules Inc. (DVEO) in 1982.
Scott Zoltan, one of Les Zoltan’s sons, has recently joined DVEO as an Interim Vice President from Mattel, where he was a marketing manager.
“My father was a very relationship-based man, and it has been an absolute pleasure to begin connecting with some of the many colleagues, customers and vendors that were part of his orbit in his long, impactful career,” said Scott. “I look forward to connecting with even more folks in the industry in coming days, and I encourage anyone who wishes to connect with myself and the rest of the team to reach out. We are forging ahead in this difficult time, and look forward to providing the same innovative products and services DVEO has become known for over the years.”
