Meyer Sound appoints first VP of solutions and strategy4 November 2014
Meyer Sound has appointed John McMahon to the newly created position of vice-president of solutions and strategy.
Working closely with CEO John Meyer and executive vice-president Helen Meyer, McMahon will oversee “the broad-based strategic planning for new products, product management and multi-product solutions across various vertical markets”.
McMahon’s new solutions and strategy division brings product management, design services, technical support and education under one umbrella with the goal of creating “a common understanding of strategic initiatives” among Meyer’s technical and customer support teams. McMahon will also continue to lead the company’s digital product concept group in accelerating new digital solutions into the market.
“As our product offerings evolve and diversify, we’ll lean on John McMahon to develop organisational processes to ensure the many functions of the company are in sync,” says Helen Meyer, executive vice-president and company co-founder. “His leadership will be crucial in maintaining our excellent customer responsiveness as we expand our presence worldwide.”
McMahon has been part of Meyer Sound’s executive team since 2008. The Canadian joined Meyer in 2005 during the acquisition of Level Control Systems (LCS Audio), where he served as CEO.
“John Meyer has pioneered a company culture that attracts customers looking for new audio solutions,” says McMahon, who describes the growth under his tenure of the Constellation acoustic system as a high point of his career at Meyer Sound. “In my new position, I will strive to maintain the highest standards in all that we do, at the same time defining a unified company growth strategy as we continue to push the envelope in both technology innovation and customer satisfaction. ”
