Minneapolis, MN (May 27, 2014)—AFMG has opened AFMG Services North America, LLC., its first U.S. based office, to cover the North American market. Overseen by Bruce C. Olson, the AFMG NA team includes Charlie Hughes and Ana Jaramillo, who will provide software training for AFMG’s acoustic simulation and measurement programs EASE, EASERA, and SysTune. AFMG has already been operating with a professional support team for EASE.
Olson, known for his work within the AES and ASA, has provided AFMG software trainings for acoustic consultants, manufacturers, and audio contractors for two decades. Hughes, who joined the AFMG support team already in 2010, is located in North Carolina. With his over 25-year experience in the professional audio industry, he provides manufacturer trainings for EASE SpeakerLab, and is a member of the AES, CEA Standards Groups, and other institutions.
In the Minnesota office, Bruce is supported by Ana Maria Jaramillo, who graduated from Virginia Tech with a PhD in architectural acoustics in 2013 before she joined AFMG to use her teaching experience as a professor at two universities in her native Colombia and her background in room acoustics.
Stefan Feistel, managing director of AFMG in Germany, inoted, “We have worked together with our American support team on an excellent basis in the past three years. Increasing brand awareness and sales as well as more seminars and trainings that we are offering increase the need for additional resources. We are very happy to have established a sound basis for AFMG’s presence in America with this step.”
