SLS International Inc. of Ozark, Mo. has promoted Tom Tyson (pictured) to vice president of sales and engineering. Initially hired by SLS in February 2005 as head of field engineering, Tyson quickly excelled in his responsibilities and was eventually assigned with overseeing new product development. Founder of Midwest-based Tyson Sound Design, an independent sound design and acoustical consulting firm, Tyson also served for 10 years as head of field engineering at Bose Professional before joining SLS.
“In the short time that Tom has been with our company, he has demonstrated a strong work ethic and great attention to detail,” states John Gott, Chairman and CEO of SLS International. “Supporting SLS’ origin as a cutting-edge technology developer and engineering based company, Tom’s new responsibilities include overseeing SLS’ in-house engineering team, which will continue its work on new product development and product enhancements and, in the process, help to uncover new techniques in achieving maximum sound quality and capability.
“Tom is also assisting with education and awareness through an exceptional national training program that he has designed and introduced,” Gott adds. “It is geared toward training commercial dealers on the vast advantages provided by SLS products and practical applications for superior sound performance. In exchange for completing the program and demonstrating a concise understanding of our products, dealers are awarded special SLS certification.”
Tyson says he is excited about this endeavor. “SLS is constantly discovering unique methods to improve the way in which people hear amplified sound, and I am happy to be participating in this steadfast effort.”
