During his career he has designed of a wide variety of large-scale commercial A/V systems for hotel chains, bars and clubs, as well as designing meeting and presentation environments for corporate clients, professional recording studios for education, live stage lighting and audio and mid-to-large scale home cinema systems.
‘Nick’s impressive skillset spans the development and analysis of control/automation software and hardware; he has significant coding ability and an excellent knowledge of driver development – all of which make him a highly valued addition to WyreStorm’s technical team,’ said Adrian Ickeringill, WyreStorm’s EMEA general manager. ‘When we have worked with Nick in the past and have always noted his technical competence, extensive installation experience and superb market-facing interpersonal skills, so when the opportunity arose to add him to our ranks, we didn’t think twice.’
Aside from the training aspect, Mr Roberts’ experience in designing A/V systems for commercial and residential applications also qualifies him to manage WyreStorm’s system design service throughout the EMEA region. This will see him take responsibility for producing key content and elements used in the service and growing this side of the WyreStorm business.
‘For years I have associated the WyreStorm brand with rock solid performance and have used many of their products in all manner of system designs and installs,’ said Mr Roberts. ‘Through my involvement with control/automation solutions I got to know the people behind the brand, which let me fully appreciate the WyreStorm philosophy of providing the best technology for the application. I am thrilled and honoured to join the WyreStorm team to become part of an exciting, dynamic and special group. With the continual expansion of the WyreStorm product line and the exiting developments just around the corner I am looking forward to the challenge of helping to affirm WyreStorm as one of the very best A/V solutions providers in the industry.’
