Gallagher will now advise the company’s board as envisioned when Xytech was acquired by Banneker Partners in December 2021. With Buckley at the helm, this move is said to position Xytech to “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 has been a leader of high-growth companies for private equity sponsors and international corporations across many tech industries, with a focus on media and network software and services. Most recently, he served as the CEO of Federos, an AI-optimised analytics and automation software solutions provider for complex networks that was recently sold to Oracle. He previously served as president and CEO of The Switch Enterprises, a leader in content production and delivery services for streaming and broadcast networks around the world. Before this, he was president and CEO of ASC Signal Corporation, Trusonic and InSight Telecommunications Corporation, among other media industry-leading companies.

“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,” Buckley said. “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.”

Kenneth Frank, partner at Banneker Partners, added: “We are excited to work with Keith as we accelerate Xytech’s mission of improving resource efficiency in the media and broadcast markets. His background in the industry and track record in growing successful software companies positions him well to relentlessly focus on customer value and partner with the existing management team. We also look forward to working alongside Richard as we assess other strategic options to accelerate growth at the company.”
