Outline announced that it has appointed Daniele Tebaldi to the newly created position of chief technology officer (CTO), where he is working with the company’s R&D team, sales and tech support departments, and the board of directors.
Previously, Tebaldi conceived and directed Live Sound Education, one of the earliest and longest-running audio courses in Italy, while also working as a freelance copywriter, publicist and translator for the pro audio industry. He then moved on to direct the Italian subsidiary of a professional loudspeaker manufacturer for 25 years.
“We’re genuinely committed to keeping Outline at the forefront of audio technology, which is where it’s been since its inception,” says Outline COO Stefano Noselli, who’s also a member of the company’s board. “Daniele’s contribution as Outline’s CTO can greatly increase our capacity to take on the challenge of the most recent and profound changes in our industry, and build a technology roadmap that will turn tech trends into our source of inspiration and main enabler.”
“The world we used to know is in our rear-view mirror,” adds Giorgio Biffi, Outline CEO, chief sales officer and member of the board. “We want to transition into new sales segments, and reach out to more markets, adding vision to the expertise we gained from our core competences. Daniele grew in a company that he joined when it was not unlike Outline in terms of size and understands how technology can help to change the way a brand is perceived – it’s this expertise of his that we value most.”
“Outline is a stronghold of solid audio engineering, sparked by a degree of passion that is often lost in the big corporate world,” Tebaldi adds. “I’ve found a most talented crew in each of Outline’s units and departments, members of which may have been with the Company for well over thirty years, but still fearlessly use change as a highly powerful tool for crafting new products. I know this spirit, I’ve been there before – and I’m glad to be part of the game here and call it my home today.”
