Xytech, the provider of resource management software solutions for media and broadcast companies, has announced the appointment of Keith Buckley as its president and CEO.

Buckley succeeds Richard Gallagher, who will move to an advisory role as part of a plan that was established when Xytech was acquired by Banneker Partners in December 2021.

Xytech said that the appointment will “significantly enhance its commitment to product innovation and operational excellence in its mission to drive visibility, efficiency and automation in the media and broadcast markets”.

Buckley joins from AI-optimised analytics and automation software solutions provider Federos, where he served as CEO. He previously served as president and CEO of The Switch Enterprises, and held the senior positions at ASC Signal Corporation, Trusonic and InSight Telecommunications Corporation.

Buckley said: “I’m joining Xytech as the company is poised for significant growth, and look forward to leveraging Xytech’s highly skilled team, strong base of product offerings, long history of core successes and its world-class customer base. The investments we’re planning and will execute upon in the immediate future will substantially increase Xytech’s value across the media and broadcast industries, creating an exciting environment for our team, our owners and – especially – our customers.”

The outgoing CEO Gallagher said: “When I started Xytech almost 40 years ago, I couldn’t have imagined the impact Xytech would have on the industry. I’m incredibly grateful to my staff across the company’s history and our amazing customers. Being of service to this community has been a deeply rewarding experience. I look forward to transitioning my responsibilities to Keith, whose background makes him a great steward of the business going forward and working with Banneker in the strategic advisory role.”
