Symetrix announces the promotion of Zak Dewey from Project Coordinator & Test Engineer to Engineering Manager.
In his new position, Dewey will report to Symetrix CEO Paul Roberts. He will coordinate company efforts to ensure that the engineering team has all of the resources it needs to research and develop innovative new products while maintaining the high quality and value for which Symetrix is known.
It will be Dewey’s responsibility to sustain the rapid pace at which Symetrix introduces market-changing product lines, such as Jupiter app based turnkey digital signal processors, Dante network audio SymNet Edge and Radius digital signal processors, and ARC-WEB smartphone-based user control.
Dewey comes to the new position with over fifteen years of professional audio experience that spans live sound (for both club- and arena-sized shows), sound recording, installed sound, and electronic engineering & servicing. He served as Pro Audio Retail Sales Associate, Installation Specialist, System Technician, Live Sound Engineer, and Speaker Recone Manager at Morgan Sound (Lynnwood, WA).
He served as Recording Engineer at Sage Recording Arts (Arlington, WA) and as Electronics Technician at Sunfire Corporation (Snohomish). In addition, he has spent a decade at the helm of his own recording studio and commercial audio installation firm, ZDPro.
“I have a long-standing loyalty to Symetrix as a company and to Symetrix products in the field,” Dewey said. “I have known Dane [Butcher] for a long time, and I am excited to contribute my unique perspective and diversity of talents to the company.”
Observed Paul Roberts, “Zak has an obvious passion for audio. With his command of the industry, his breadth of experience, and his natural people skills, I am confident that Zak will help us maintain the momentum we are currently enjoying and spur us to even greater heights.”
