Andrew Glasmacher named Listen product training manager
WORLD: Listen Technologies has appointed Andrew Glasmacher as product training manager. The company's vice president of sales, Tim Schaeffer, announced that Mr Glasmacher will be responsible for training across all of the company’s products, as well as specific training initiatives throughout the year. The appointment will include Mr Gasmacher leading the manufacturer’s Hearing Loop Level 1 and Level 2 classes, having received hands-on training from Ampertronic.
‘We are glad to have Andrew on board as our Listen product training manager,’ stated Mr Schaefer. ‘These training sessions are of the utmost importance for industry professionals, and Andrew is the right person to lead them. Designing a loop system can be very simple, but it is also easy to make a mistake and end up with an inadequate system. Hearing loop training gives you the expertise you’ll need to understand specification and design considerations of different types of loop systems, basic, advanced, and phased array, and also to understand Installation, setting up, testing and certifying a loop system to the IEC60118-4 standard.’
‘My new position as product training manager for Listen Technologies comes at a great time,’ commented Mr Glasmacher. ‘Many of my long-time musician friends are now suffering hearing loss, so the company’s products have personal significance. My experiences and training in audio and my love of being in front of people have now converged.’
Mr Glasmacher has worked as a production assistant for a major label songwriter and as an operations manager for Guitar Center. From there, he went on to work as a territory representative for Harman International before joining Poll Sound, a major Utah audio systems integrator, where he worked for the past five years as a sales engineer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Sound Arts.
