“I recently joined Electrosonic to take the 54 year journey of the company to its next phase of development. Technology capabilities are evolving quickly and this brings a unique opportunity for forward thinking AV specialists. I was excited to join after meeting the leadership teams and was awed by the passion and capability within the business. Electrosonic has many “firsts” in the audio visual industry and the prospects for global growth are clear to see”.
