Two months after moving into a new expanded office/warehouse facility, Lynx Studio Technology has added several new employees in the expanding sales, support, engineering and product testing departments. Industry veteran Mike Nicoletti is the company's new sales and support coordinator.
"Over the last few years Lynx has seen uninterrupted growth and we have been running quite lean in the sales and support departments. After a long search for the right person, we were delighted to be able to bring on a person with Mike's experience, knowledge and energy," states Phil Moon, VP sales and marketing. "Mike will support our U.S. and Canada dealer base, and work closely with our key and developmental accounts. He is well known with many of our top dealers, so it is very easy for him to hit the ground running."
Prior to joining Lynx, Nicoletti held a variety of support and training positions at Yamaha, Alesis and Apogee. Lynx states that Nicoletti's product knowledge and strong familiarity with the recording and pro audio retailers and end-users make him uniquely qualified to work in both the sales and support departments. Nicoletti is also an accomplished musician and recording engineer.
"I am very excited to be joining the team at Lynx," Nicoletti says. "For some time I have been aware of the excellent reputation of Lynx products, and now, working with the staff, it is clear to me why the products are so amazing. It is because everyone here really cares about product performance and quality. I am looking forward to using my experience to help the sales and support staff ensure that our dealers and end-users continue to be happy and well taken care of."
Lynx Studio Technology has also hired hardware engineer Stephen Kimura and Frank Sutton as an electronic testing technician.
"Due to the increased volume of Lynx products in the field, Lynx has added these three talented people to our growing staff," states Bob Bauman, cofounder and company president. "We have seen sustained growth over the last few years and these new hires will help us continue our growth."
Kimura, a 2008 UCLA graduate, is now employed full time after a stint as an intern at Lynx early in 2008. His Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering allows him to assist Bauman, the company's chief hardware engineer, in the development of new products and the refinement of current Lynx products. Kimura also interned at Shure Brothers in Chicago and NiChe Labs in Japan during his junior and senior years at UCLA. He received the Lear Siegler Foundation Scholarship and was inducted into the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society.
Sutton comes from First EIE, where he was responsible for North America service, support and installation of that company's PC-based plotters for the PCB industry products. Lynx states that Sutton's extensive background in analog and digital electronics and proficiency in test equipment and procedures make him and ideal addition to the Lynx team. As every Lynx product receives a full function and specification test prior to shipment, Sutton is responsible for this testing, QC and assisting engineering in product development.
