Palo Alto, CA (December 6, 2005)–The Euphonix Board of Directors has appointed Martin Kloiber to the position of chief executive officer of the company. Kloiber has been working for Euphonix since 2000, most recently as chief technology officer, and takes over the position from Jeff Chew.
Euphonix board member and investor, Dieter Meier, commented, “With the recent introduction of the System 5-MC and MC controllers, and the existing line of System 5 and Max Air digital mixing systems, Euphonix is in a very strong position with healthy sales and steady growth. However, the professional audio business is changing rapidly with the move to networked computer systems and converging markets, so we feel that the next phase of the company’s development needs a fresh managerial approach to capitalize on these trends. Martin Kloiber Martin has played a key role in formulating the company’s technology strategy and has been instrumental in building the inter-company relationships that are now an essential part of this business, so we feel he is the perfect person to help lead the company into the future.”
With a degree in Music and Electronics, Kloiber worked as an independent producer and engineer in music and broadcast beginning in Austria in 1984. Kloiber first became familiar with Euphonix as chief engineer for Soundproof Studios in 1991, when he selected a Euphonix CSII mixing system and then later a System 5 and the R-1 recorder for the facility. He was appointed executive VP of technology and a member of the board in 2002.
