Atlanta, GA (October 20, 2008)–Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup has appointed Russell Waite as president of its U.S. operations.
He began his audio career at Siemens in Vienna, Austria, as project leader for Eastern Europe projects. His next step was managing European sales for U.K.-based AMS Neve. His most recent position was executive vice president of sales and product marketing at Euphonix where he worked in Vancouver, London and finally at the company headquarters in Palo Alto, CA.
“I have always found the Stagetec Nexus router system to stand in a class of its own due to its flexibility and robustness,” Waite says. “With the Aurus and Auratus digital mixing consoles and the Delec intercom systems, we are able to provide single products or complete system solutions to a wide range of possible users. I will work closely with the existing Stagetec dealers who have already helped the company to become firmly established over many years in the U.S. Together, we will begin a new chapter, introducing these stellar products to many more American broadcasters and theaters.”
Stephan Salzbrenner, one of the German consortium’s managing directors, explains, “In Rusty, we have found a strong partner who will bring the company closer to the entire North American market.”
