imgScott Leslie, appointed president of Californian loudspeaker maker Renkus-Heinz in January of this year, has left after less than half a year. The split was “amicable” said a Renkus spokesman.
“Scott may even do some consulting for Renkus Heinz in the future,” continued the spokesman. “For the moment, the RH executive board are reviewing their options and have not yet decided on a next move.”
Leslie, a former VP of engineering at JBL in Northridge, California, joined Renkus as the company moved into a phase of expansion and marketshare grab in 2012.
“When I first started talking about the possibility with Harro [Heinz, co-founder and chairman] here, I had visions of what was next for Renkus, [which] of course, is growth,” said Leslie, speaking to PSNEurope in January (read the full Scott Leslie interview).
Leslie has since returned to his consultancy position with Evidant Corporation, and has told PSNEurope that he aimed to be "back in the pro-sound business, maybe with a start-up company, who knows", within the next few months.
Recent Renkus-Heinz projects have included the installation of a PNX102/LA line array at Europe’s first drag racing track to be accredited by the American-based National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) in in Tierp, Sweden.
