The Vitec Group has appointed Matt Danilowicz (pictured) to the role of chief executive of its Vitec Videocom division.

Danilowicz has replaced Joop Janssen, who had held the role since 2003.

Danilowicz was chief executive of Clear-Com for five years until 2010.

At the beginning of 2012, he returned to Bexel, the US-based rental company. Bexel is being merged with Vitec Videocom, and Danilowicz has the task of aligning the two organisations.
