DIAL GLOBAL Chief Technology Officer CONRAD TRAUTMANN has been named “Chapter Engineer of the Year” by the SOCIETY OF BROADCAST ENGINEERS Chapter 15 (NEW YORK CITY). The award, for which TRAUTMANN is the first recipient, recognizes individuals who best further the goals and objectives of their SBE Chapter and shows outstanding local/regional leadership and ethics.
“We are thrilled to honor CONRAD with our first ‘Chapter Engineer of the Year’ award,” said Chapter Chairman JEFF SMITH. “Within CONRAD’s 30 plus years of service to SBE 15, he was instrumental in reestablishing the chapter in the 1980’s after declining membership and financial troubles caused the Chapter to cease operations. CONRAD is recognized for implementing a model that has made SBE 15 the largest and most financially stable SBE local chapter in the country.”
“Receiving SBE Chapter 15’s first Engineer of the Year award is truly an honor. Collaborating with the other member broadcast engineers in the NY metropolitan area over the years has been extremely rewarding and inspiring. It is especially gratifying to be recognized now while we are integrating new technologies and breaking new ground at DIAL GLOBAL.”
