To accelerate the expansion of its Asia-Pacific presence, Meyer Sound has announced two new hires: John Zhang as Sales Manager, China and Korea, and Tim Boot as Business Development Manager, Asia-Pacific.
Working closely with the regional sales and support network, Zhang and Boot will drive Meyer Sound’s Asian growth, representing the full range of Meyer Sound solutions from the groundbreaking Constellation® acoustic system to the latest sound reinforcement systems like LEO® and LYON™. They will work to expand a user base that has included the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Zhuhai, the Beijing Auto Show, Alpensia Hall in South Korea, and more.
“From theatrical spectacles to cinema and live touring, Asia is now a vibrant hub of some of the most sophisticated and ambitious Meyer Sound installations,” says John McMahon, Meyer Sound’s vice president of solutions and strategy. “Our continued growth potential in Asia lies not only in quality products but also in our ability to provide timely and knowledgeable support to the region. With John and Tim on the team, we look forward to further accelerating our impact in the region.”
As the newest member of the Meyer Sound sales team, Zhang will help nurture the Meyer Sound distribution network and strengthen customer support capabilities through the company’s Beijing office. Bilingual in English and Mandarin, Zhang brings 15 years of sales experience in the global AV industry, including prior high-level positions with Shanghai Media Group, Micronas (USA), Inc., and Philips Electronics.
A 25-year veteran in audio, video, and acoustical design, Boot will be responsible for connecting Meyer Sound technology with architects, AV consultants, sound designers, systems integrators, and acousticians throughout the region. Before joining Meyer Sound, Boot was CEO of KHz Design, Inc. and principal at Sonitus Consulting. While with Sonitus, he played a key role in development of the Constellation system at SoundScape in Miami Beach, a landmark project that the New York Times reported as setting a “new standard for the outdoor relaying of indoor musical performances.”
