L-Acoustics has appointed two regional industry experts to support existing partners and grow the company’s presence in key vertical markets, as well as with consultants, integrators, sound engineers and end users in the region. Over the last decade, the region has been successfully supported by L-Acoustics Sales Manager Peter Owen, who will now concentrate his expertise on developing key territories in Russia and Eastern Europe.
The appointment of a new, dedicated and locally based team will allow the company to nurture new and closer relationships in the Middle East, India and East Africa. Chris Mead, Sales Manager for the Middle East, India, and East Africa, will build relationships and develop business in the region. Rahul Samuel, Application Engineer for the Middle East and India, will provide technical support, design assistance and training to partners and projects throughout the area.
“The Middle East and India regions are very diverse culturally yet share a common commitment to building innovative and technically advanced venues and entertainment experiences,” Cédric Montrezor, Executive Director of Application at L-Acoustics, said. “This drive to excel and impress has led the region to dynamic growth—growth which remains resilient throughout the current difficult period.”
Mead is a recognized industry professional with over 15 years of experience in the UK and the Middle East. He began his career designing and implementing AV solutions for end users and most recently provided technical support and developed sales in the Middle East region for Meyer Sound.
