CADAC US and Canada has secured premises in Hoboken, New Jersey that will house the new North American division’s sales, distribution and service operations, headed up by general manager Paul Morini. Currently under refurbishment, the new HQ will be fully operational by the end of August.
At the same time, the company announced the appointment of console engineer Mitch Mortenson as technical support manager. Mortenson is a renowned pro audio industry personality having spent some 20 years in the industry in recording studio and sound touring engineering, and technical sales. His background includes nine years in front line technical support roles for Midas consoles in North America.
Morini, who worked alongside Mortenson at Midas, describes him as “uniquely qualified within our industry to take on this role for CADAC.”
“He is long associated in the US as Midas’ technical trouble-shooter, in providing pre and post sales support, and as the in-the-field concert touring tech; as well as establishing comprehensive training programs,” Morini adds. “He is going to be a very major asset to our new operations in the US and Canada.”
Mortenson adds, “I am honored to have the opportunity to work with a company with such a legendary status in professional audio. The release of the CDC eight console, and the potential to put the brand at the very forefront of the live sound industry, is exciting. After a two-year break working outside of the industry, it is great to be coming back to join such a fantastic team.”
