CODA audio has recruited system engineer George Puttock as its new product manager for software support and training.
Puttock has up to 10 years of experience in working as a systems engineer. In the past six years, he has gained experience in a wide range of duties, such as managing the systems on live tours of artists such as Ellie Goulding, Placebo, The Script and Enter Shikari, as well as classical symphonic concerts, which have happened to use CODA Audio systems.
Puttock commented on his new role: “I’ve spent at least half of my professional life on the road using CODA Audio systems. In the last few years, I’ve spent the vast majority of my time on the road, so that gives some idea of just how many hours and days I’ve spent designing, measuring, rigging, listening to and thinking about what I consider to be the best audio systems in the world. When you’re that close to something, you take account of the minutiae of everything – you’re constantly appraising and looking for even greater advantage.” He added: “I’ve obviously used CODA systems in a whole variety of applications and that led to a conversation with the company based around that ‘real world’ experience and how it could impact on CODA’s future development. That conversation helped define my new role and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve been privileged to work with some incredible people over the years and I’m grateful for the opportunities that have shaped my understanding of the audio industry. I can’t wait to get to grips with my new position and become part of the team that is establishing CODA Audio as a world leader.”
CODA’s director of global marketing, David Webster added: “We’ve known George for some years now and it is patently clear to us that his expertise is of the very highest order. Couple that with a level of hands-on experience of using CODA systems in the field, across an incredibly wide remit and we have a formidable talent at our disposal. CODA has always placed the comment and evaluation we receive from system techs and engineers at the forefront of our R&D. Rather than being prescriptive, we’re trying to create technologies that respond to the needs of people whose job it is to make audio come alive. Listening is key in every respect! In coming to join the CODA Audio team, George will bring a depth of insight that could never be acquired in purely academic terms. We look forward to him becoming an integral part of the CODA team.”
