Meyer Sound has announced the appointment of Chris Mead as the company’s Middle East Technical Support Manager. Based at the Meyer Sound Middle East office in Dubai, Mead will be responsible for providing technical support to customers throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and Indian sub-continent.
“Meyer Sound’s growth opportunities in the Middle East lie in our quality products as well as our ability to provide timely and knowledgeable technical support for customers in the territory,” says Mauricio Saint Martin, director of Middle East sales. “Chris’s in-depth engineering background and extensive experience with the regional integration market make him an ideal fit to represent Meyer Sound.”
In his new post, Mead will assume the lead role in the region by supervising the design of Meyer Sound loudspeaker and digital audio systems, on-site project commissioning, after-sale customer training, and technical seminars.
Mead comes to Meyer Sound with nine years of experience in systems engineering in the AV and broadcast industries, with assignments in both his native United Kingdom and in the Middle East.
