Electrosonic announces Sean McChesney as Chief Revenue Officer
Electrosonic, the award-winning international audiovisual and experiential technology company, announced the appointment of Sean McChesney as Chief Revenue Officer today.
McChesney, who began his career at Electrosonic 10 years ago, will be responsible for developing and executing a global revenue strategy that drives sustainable business growth. This will further strengthen Electrosonic's commitment to its clients and partners.
Reporting directly to the CEO, McChesney will play a pivotal role in shaping the company’s overall revenue generation and optimizing our sales and marketing efforts while serving as a member of the Global Executive Leadership Team. Since joining the company as a graduate apprentice in 2013 in Electrosonic’s START Program, McChesney has held various key technical and business roles, most recently as Vice President of Sales, North America.
“I’m excited to further my responsibilities with a company that has such a rich history in the industry," said McChesney. “I can't wait to harness the passion and expertise of Electrosonic’s talented global teams as we continue to push the boundaries of the built environment through the use of technology and storytelling.”
McChesney joins Ewan Smith Chief Executive Officer, Michelle Byrne, Chief People Officer, Nico Åhlström, Chief Financial Officer and Steve Chambers, Chief Operating Officer as a member of Electrosonic’s Global Executive Leadership Team.
McChesney advances from intern to global leadership role
McChesney will be responsible for overseeing the global sales, marketing, technology innovation and partnerships teams. He will work closely with the rest of the executive team to continue to grow the business internationally to support our customers and partners.
"We're thrilled to have Sean lead our global enterprise teams as Chief Revenue Officer,” said Ewan Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Electrosonic “Throughout his career at Electrosonic Sean has flourished in each opportunity he’s received. He has built valuable experience and relationships across the business, while demonstrating commitment to innovation and excellence along the way. Sean’s deep knowledge of experiential technology, business acumen and strong communication skills will help us advance Electrosonic’s strong competitive advantage."
McChesney’s new role is the latest in a continuing series of career progressions. Following graduation as Master of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon, he joined Electrosonic in 2013 as a graduate apprentice on the START program. Electrosonic’s START program is a progressive nine-month apprenticeship that gives new professionals hands-on experience working with experts in their field and contributing directly to live projects.
He then gained promotion through increasingly vital roles as Sales Engineer, Sales Consultant, Director of Business Development, Experiential Technology Solutions and Vice President Sales, North America.
McChesney’s achievements also received independent recognition when he was chosen as Young AV Professional of the Year at the 2020 AVIXA Awards and Commercial Integrator’s Forty Under Forty list in 2021.
Along the way, McChesney has contributed to many of Electrosonic’s most prestigious projects, including One World Observatory, The Stream at Uber’s Global Headquarters, Idaho State Historical Society Museum, Whittier Library’s Children’s Interactive, Okta Experience Center and NHL’s Seattle Experience Center.
Throughout his career, McChesney has worked closely with senior leaders in technology and business, and has been mentored by Chris Conte, Electrosonic’s Executive Consultant and Global Ambassador.
“It has been a privilege to work with Sean,” said Chris Conte. “It was clear from the outset that he had the talent, intuition and a tremendous enthusiasm for experiential technology and the way it can help our clients and partners advance their projects. I’m delighted, but not surprised, that he will now be in a new leadership position to positively influence Electrosonic’s future direction on a global level.”
