SLS Audio of Ozark, MO has appointed Charles (Chuck) Mulhearn to take the reins of their growing Commercial Cinema division.
As Director of Cinema Sales Worldwide, Mulhearn will focus his years of experience in the Cinema industry towards managing the expanding channel to market success SLS is experiencing.
Mulhearn has been in the Professional Audio Industry for over 35 years and spent 30 years with Klipsch Audio Technologies developing many different domestic and international market segments for their company. He has extensive market knowledge in both the North American Cinema/Exhibition market as well as its worldwide market.
In addition to being responsible for market distribution, sales and P&L accountability, Mulhearn is also proficient in Product Development and overseeing many audio system designs. These systems consisted of applications from small business background audio, cinema/exhibition to large outdoor arenas.
During the last 12 years, Mulhearn has concentrated his energy within the Professional Cinema/Exhibition industry. Along with several other specialists, he was involved in the design of the very first operational 16 channel Cinema audio playback system, created to take advantage of the multiple audio tracks available in today’s Digital Cinema programming.
Over the last 3 years, Mulhearn has consulted for cinema equipment providers and has been responsible for the design and project management of many multi-screen complexes. He was not only responsible for the audio portion of the design, but for Digital Projection, Screening, and Private VIP rooms and seating as well.
“For the past two years we have seen a huge increase of both international and domestic sales of our Cinema speaker systems. Our growth has reached a point to where we needed someone with more in depth expertise in this field to properly service our clients,” said SLS Audio’s President, John Gott. “With Mulhearn’s vast knowledge of the Commercial Cinema industry, he is the perfect fit for SLS.”
