Adamson grows management team
WORLD: Adamson Systems Engineering has expanded its management team with two new directors. Benoit Cabot has been promoted to director of R&D while Marc Weber has joined in a director capacity to launch a new Product and Brand management division. They join director James Oliver to continue the strengthening of a young leadership team.
‘Our product vision has endured generations and we’ve built a management team that will lead it through many more,’ said Brock Adamson, founder and president of Adamson Systems Engineering. ‘We’re driven by engineering and the production of high performance systems; not a corporate obsession of satisfying a group of investors. Our young leadership has been tasked to maintain this focus while our company rapidly expands.’
Mr Cabot has been under the mentorship of Mr Adamson for more than 10 years. He has been instrumental in refining many of the manufacturer’s patented designs. ‘Brock seeks truth in everything he does. When it comes to design we have never settled,’ said Mr Cabot. ‘I’m looking forward to helping lead this growing team as we realise more integrated, user-friendly systems that continue to lead our industry in performance.’
Mr Weber joins Adamson from d&b audiotechnik. During his 17 years with d&b he was responsible for the establishment of its global service network, created the 48-hour replacement service and specified and launched key products such as the R1 Remote control software and the d&b D80 amplifier. He also serves as chairman of the marketing workgroup for the OCA Alliance. His role at Adamson will see him lead the newly created Product and Brand management team which has been designed to sharpen Adamson’s brand perception in the market and strengthen the connection to its user base.
‘Our focus will be to improve the overall user experience in cooperation with our partners,’ noted Mr Weber. ‘The development and delivery of a cutting edge global training programme will allow us to better share our technical knowledge with our users, optimising the performance of our loudspeakers in the field. Adamson products are already specified on many global tour riders and we will build on this success, widening the Adamson offering and bringing this high level of performance to new applications.’
Working with Mr Weber in the new team are application engineers Brian Fraser and Jeremiah Karni. ‘Brian and Jeremiah have spent the last four years in the field applying our technical knowledge and, in turn, learning from our users. From performing arts installations through mobile stadium deployments they have seen Adamson products at work,’ said Mr Weber. ‘Brian will drive new products and the workflow of current systems. Jeremiah will turn his focus to the development and delivery of a cutting edge global training programme. To support this growth, further central application support will be added.’
‘I think our customers have already felt the impact of our renewed focus,’ concluded Mr Adamson. ‘In the coming years this management team will continue to grow our system offering to meet the standard Adamson has set in the industry.’
