Eighteen Sound of Reggio Emilia, Italy announced that Jeffrey Cox (pictured) has joined the company to participate in its growth and market development.
Prior to this appointment Cox spent nearly five year at Loud Technologies as vice president, pro audio, leading Martin Audio and EAW through restructuring and product development (MLA for Martin Audio). In June of this year, Eighteen Sound announced its organisational independence from the corporate structure of AEB Technologies, and in this process, Eighteen Sound CEO Antonia Fiaccadori selected Cox to further align the company’s goals toward 2014, 2015 and beyond. “Jeffrey brings a unique set of experiences, relationships and understanding to Eighteen Sound. I want to make sure that the company maintains the kind of dedicated and individual focus that we are known for, and Jeffrey exemplifies that in the way he conducts business. This is how we want to expand.” Eighteen Sound moved to its new location in June of 2013, and now has the world-class setting and production facilities they have envisioned. The new factory and offices provide the customized space and accommodations, including robotic assembly lines and a state-of-the-art testing rooms, that are essential in their specialized business model. “Joining Eighteen Sound at this point in their expansion is a rare circumstance to work with the finest transducer engineers and design creators in the world,” said Cox. “I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy Eighteen Sound as a component provider, and these beautiful Italian transducers are the key to some of the most unique and satisfying professional systems in the world. Eighteen Sound resides in many of the loudspeaker systems known as ‘Flagship’ in our industry. The technologies, friendships and reputation for excellence that are essential in a strong, ongoing manufacturer-to-manufacturer bond are here in Eighteen Sound.” www.eighteensound.com
