Rio Rancho, NM (April 14, 2010)–Lectrosonics has appointed Bernard Farkus as its Central U.S. representative.
With more than 24 years of experience in the broadcast and commercial audio-video industry, his background makes him a solid choice for this position. He will eventually be stationed in the greater Dallas, TX area.
In his new capacity, Farkus will represent Lectrosonics in Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming. Among his various responsibilities will be to serve as the company’s conduit for the authorized Lectrosonics dealer network, conduct product training and demonstrations, and represent Lectrosonics at regional trade shows and similar events.
Farkus possesses CTS-D certification from InfoComm International and has been actively involved in the design and/or commissioning of hundreds of audio, video, intercom and control systems. With a work history that includes tenures at Wheatstone Corporation, ClearOne Communications and Waveguide Consulting, he has been a design engineer/project manager, field applications engineer and sales engineer. Additionally, he is a Level II Crestron programmer and has a DSP (digital signal processing) background.
Farkus commented, “Lectrosonics represents a wonderful opportunity for me to utilize my sales, management and application background. I’ve always had a passion for the technologies utilized in the broadcast, theater and musical performance spaces and, for quite some time, have been actively involved in the creation/specification of audiovisual systems. The opportunity to be actively engaged in the many areas where Lectrosonics competes is something I find uniquely challenging and rewarding. I believe this position is a great fit for me, and I’m really looking forward to digging in.”
Gordon Moore, vice president of sales for Lectrosonics, shares Farkus’ enthusiasm. “I’m very pleased to have Bernard joining our effort,” Moore said. “His combination of skills makes him a terrific choice for the Central U.S. representative position. In addition to his background in the broadcast sector, he understands what the AV contracting professional looks for, and this is critically important when it comes to directing a prospective customer to the most appropriate products. With the addition of our new ASPEN Series processors, Bernard’s ability to represent these products makes him a great fit for our organization. I’m confident he’ll do well and produce the results we’re looking for.”
