Bob McCarthy returns to Meyer Sound
WORLD: Bob McCarthy has joined Meyer Sound full-time in the newly created role of director of system optimisation. Mr McCarthy will be a part of the company’s R&D department and has been tasked to advance networked audio solutions. In addition, he will remain an active instructor in the Meyer Sound education programme, and support the design and commissioning of new installations.
Mr McCarthy’s work with Meyer Sound began long before joining the company full-time. He was one of the earliest users of Meyer Sound products in the 1980s, and has been a pivotal figure in the development of all three generations of the SIM source independent measurement system. In the mid 1980s, he taught the first ‘SIM School’ which later evolved into the Meyer Sound worldwide education programme.
‘Bob has played many roles with Meyer Sound in the past three decades,’ said John McMahon, executive director of operations and digital products. ‘As he returns as a full-time employee, he’s bringing with him an unmatched wealth of audio knowledge and experience with Meyer Sound systems. This is great news for our R&D department as well as our many customers who count on Meyer Sound solutions to tackle the most difficult acoustic challenges.’
‘It’s a privilege to join a company that is shaping the future of sound reinforcement,’ said Mr McCarthy. ‘From building loudspeaker systems with dedicated Control Electronics Units (CEUs) in the late 1970s to now integrating room optimisation and audio distribution, Meyer Sound has always been at the forefront of building total systems. By working in the field with other users of Meyer Sound equipment, I aim to further our understanding of complete system implementation to benefit our R&D and education efforts.’
