Meyer Sound has announced John McMahon as executive director of operations, a newly created position, effective immediately.
McMahon will play a key role in aligning the long-term mission, operational goals, and expansion programs across the company, while continuing to fulfill his existing duties as executive director of digital products and managing director of Meyer Sound China.
“It’s important to maintain our responsiveness in our engineering and support services as we develop more system-based products like EXP [cinema system] and Constellation [acoustic system] while entering new vertical markets and expanding our global presence,” says Helen Meyer, executive vice president of Meyer Sound. “John McMahon will play a key role in connecting the different departments and making sure they are in sync as the company builds towards further growth.”
Under the strategic oversight of Helen Meyer and CEO John Meyer, McMahon will work to strengthen the company’s operations and its ability to innovate in collaboration with the key department leaders. They include Pablo Espinosa of R&D engineering, Dean Marshall of product development, Tim Wise of manufacturing & sustaining reliability, Mike Panko of production services, Cliff Eldridge of finance, Rachel Archibald of marketing, and Antonio Zacarias, who has recently been promoted to VP of worldwide sales.
McMahon joined Meyer Sound in 2005 during the acquisition of Level Control Systems (LCS Audio) at which he was serving as CEO. Since then, he has been working closely with consultants, sound designers, and other end users while growing the company’s digital engineering and technical teams to make Meyer Sound digital audio technology accessible to audiences worldwide.
