Plailly, France (December 2, 2014)—A new CEO has been appointed to lead French loudspeaker manufacturer Nexo: Jean Mullor, who was most recently the MD of the French subsidiary of Yamaha Music Europe.
In his nearly four years in that previous role with Yamaha, Mullor oversaw domestic distribution of musical instruments, commercial audio products, audio video products and music schools network development. Starting out as a lawyer, Mullor moved from American multinational oil and gas corporation Mobil to Yamaha, joining the French branch in 1992, where over the years, he gained experience in HR, logistics, finance, sales and marketing.
In a statement, Mullor said taking the CEO position was “a remarkable opportunity to join a company that has a 30-year record of technical achievement and an industry-leading reputation. With its flagship technology making inroads at the very top of the international market, and a slate of new products scheduled for release, these are exciting times for NEXO, and I’m looking forward to being part of its talented team.”
Yoshi Tsugawa, who led the company for the last three-and-a-half years, will return to Japan, where he takes up new responsibilities as the General Manager for Band & Orchestra products in the MI & Audio Sales and Marketing Group of Yamaha Corporation.
