L-Acoustics has hired Tony Szabo as head of touring application to support major projects across the globe and co-manage its team.
Szabo will work directly with Florent Bernard, director of applications, touring, to deploy the application strategy and work with L-Acoustic’s network of partners worldwide.
His career in pro audio spans 25 years, from monitor technician to FOH engineer, working with some of the top names in the music business (including David Bowie and Kylie Minogue).
“I’ve worked extensively with all of the top pro audio technologies and I’m proud to join what I consider to be the leading pro audio brand,” Szabo commented. “It’s exciting to represent the L-Acoustics in the touring market, ensuring the continued strength of the brand through the excellence of our internal team and our global network of partners.”
Most recently, he served as senior systems engineer at L-Acoustics UK partner Adlib Audio Solutions, designing systems for tours and festivals as well as mentoring the systems engineer team and leading technology acquisition decisions.
Bernard said: “Tony’s extensive experience in key posts in the industry brings a unique and fresh perspective to lead our market development strategy. His combination of technical expertise, industry knowledge, and business acumen will be a great asset for L-Acoustics. Counting Tony in this newly created position will allow us to continue to affirm and expand our leadership in the touring market, while supporting our partners to do the same.”
