MARCOUSSIS, France – June 2009 — L-ACOUSTICS’ worldwide headquarters, located just south of Paris, has appointed two new international sales managers: Tim McCall and Peter Owen.
Owen will handle Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, the Russian Federation, India and the Middle East, a territory he was keen to represent having grown up in Doha. He previously worked for Harman’s UK distributor, Arbiter, Martin Audio and Biamp. “I’ve always admired L-ACOUSTICS for their belief in finding the right partnerships, and not just closing the next sale,” he says. “The products have been at the leading edge for almost two decades now, and it takes something special to stay ahead of the game for that long.”
McCall, who has spent the last decade working for BSS and Turbosound respectively, will handle southern Europe, Africa and Australasia/Oceania. “I’m very excited by the opportunity to work for such a principled and technologically-driven company,” says McCall. “I am looking forward to working with our partners — be they distributors, installers, rental companies or consultants — across a diverse territory, and I believe that my experience, L-ACOUSTICS’ philosophy and products and our partners’ local knowledge is an unbeatable combination.”
Adds Jochen Frohn, L-ACOUSTICS’ director of business development, “Due to our expanding business, we’ve had to increase the number of sales staff. In Peter and Tim we have found what I would call ‘young veterans’ — two sales managers who’ve worked for many years with a worldwide customer base, with vast experience in touring and installed sound. They will be able to offer professional guidance and technical expertise to their clients, and both are perfectly suited to the cultural challenge of the positions. Last but not least, they are two personalities who fit perfectly into our team!”
