Dr Klaus-Peter Scholz (pictured), a founder and pioneer of Stagetec in Berlin, will be retiring on 31 October 2013. The company recently celebrated its 20th anniversary in July of this year. Scholz has shaped the company's image, and with his in-depth knowledge of digital audio technology acted as the interface between technical development and distribution to this day. As part of his activities, he advised customers on site when new equipment was installed or put into operation, and provided technical consulting. In future, René Harder will be responsible for this area. He began his career at Stagetec as a developer in 2003, and later became assistant manager, giving him opportunity to become familiar with the new area. "Stagetec has driven innovation from the first digital Nexus audio networks and Cantus mixing consoles on, going from strength to strength in the 20 years since its founding. Today, our broad range of products caters to a multitude of industries on all continents, which gives us healthy stability in the market, also during turbulent times," Dr Scholz remarked. "I even accepted an Emmy in Los Angeles, on behalf of Stagetec! I am proud to have done my part to build this success – and I think back fondly on the many great times I have had with our customers, be it at the initial planning meetings or the final opening ceremony for a new installation." www.stagetec.com
