With the full backing of Apollo, our majority shareholder, and a great partner and mentor in Rainer, I look forward to building on the knowledge and experience of the Chyron team to drive even greater success for the company and our customers.”
Truex has served as Chyron’s CFO since 2018. In his expanded role, Truex will oversee all activities of the company. He will work closely with Gawlick in guiding the company’s development and growth.
