L-Acoustics in Oxnard, Calif., announces that it has appointed Scott Sugden (pictured, left) to the newly created post of Head of U.S. Touring Support. The announcement comes from L-Acoustics’ Head of Touring Support, Florent Bernard (pictured at right), to whom Sugden reports.
Over the past two years, Sugden contributed to L-Acoustics success in the U.S. as an independent contractor. Now officially a full-time staff member, Sugden will continue to be based in Milwaukee.
Prior to joining L-Acoustics, Sugden spent time as a systems engineer for Clearwing Productions, Masque Sound and PRG Audio, as well as for touring off-Broadway productions of The Producers, Spamalot and 700 Sundays.
“Scott is an outstanding ambassador for L-Acoustics to the front lines of the touring world, and we’re really glad to recognize him as an official part of our team,” says Bernard. “He has a tremendous amount of experience with our products on all kinds of touring productions, but what makes him truly special is his genuine friendliness and passion to share his knowledge with others.”
Sugden’s duties now include leading the company’s efforts in the areas of product and sound design support, technical training, system design, operation processes, and both training and documentation development for the entire range of L-Acoustics products relevant to the touring sound market. He will also support, on an as-needed basis, the installation sound market in providing system design reports, SOUNDVISION modeling, and client interfacing.
