AES names new president
WORLD: Alex Case has assumed the presidency of the Audio Engineering Society (AES). Mr Case is an associate professor of Sound Recording Technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and has previously held a number of roles at the organisation, including co-chair of the membership committee, past chair of the education committee and the technical committee for recording technology and practice.
‘Alex Case has a diverse background in business, science, engineering and academia,’ said John Krivit, immediate past president of the AES. ‘Alex is a great communicator. His skill set will serve the AES well over the next year, as it has already done with his committee and board of governors roles.’
‘The greatest strength of the Audio Engineering Society is its membership,’ added Mr Case. ‘The diversity, depth of knowledge and professionalism in our membership is what makes the society unique. Serving that membership with opportunities to grow and thrive is the AES’ highest calling. The leadership of the AES in advancing the art and science of audio not only fosters progress in the audio industry, but helps improve the consumer experience of sound.’
