Marcoussis, France (March 5, 2010)–L-Acoustics has strengthened its technical support team with the appointment of two new staff members: David Yates and Germain Simon.
Yates has joined as fixed installation manager, with more than 10 years’ experience in acoustics and AV consultancy. He has worked on a range of building projects ranging from performing arts centers, art galleries and theaters to government facilities, airports and transport terminals.
“I’m delighted to have joined L-Acoustics,” says Yates. “I consider them to be at the cutting edge of loudspeaker design and technology. Their unique engineering approach, from first principles, is at the forefront of loudspeaker system design and this approach flows throughout the company, which is made up of a close-knit and highly skilled team. The results from the efforts of this approach speak for themselves, and it is something that I feel very fortunate to be a part of.”
Simon has been appointed as technical support and will work closely with Cédric Montrézor, head of installation support. Simon has a Masters degree in acoustics from the French University of Compiègne, and another Masters degree from the Chalmers University of Sweden. He previously worked for Harman International in Northridge, CA.
