Soundcraft Studer has appointed Angel G. Perez to the newly created position of Applications Engineer, Intercontinental, as part of its continuing initiative to better serve the emerging and established markets of the Intercontinental region.
Perez, a veteran with more than 15 years in the audio field, is a recognized professional in the television and audio industry in Puerto Rico. His role in this new position is to support Soundcraft and Studer distributors in the region in all matters related to digital audio consoles. Among his responsibilities, he will be the first line of sales and technical application support for our clients, working with them to enable effective and appropriate use of the product range to meet their specific needs. He will report to Jaime Albors, Senior Director of Sales Intercontinental, Harman Professional and will operate from the company's Intercontinental sales office in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Perez joins Harman Professional from Univision Puerto Rico, a network affiliate from the Univision Network in the United States. Perez was the head audio engineer of the production department and had the responsibility of working with the engineering department to design, select and integrate the audio equipment to be used in their daily and special productions. He also worked closely with the station vendors and rental companies in equipment selection and implementation for various national and international productions.
Perez also worked as freelance audio engineer for various artists and events in Puerto Rico. As an active member of his church, he leads the audio team and has a vast understanding of the house of worship market as well. This is the perfect mix of knowledge, as he doesn't only understand the broadcast market, but the live sound and house of worship markets as well.
“I am positive that Angel G. Perez's contribution to our team and to our distributors will be noticed immediately as our office has been bridging the gap between the factories and our customers. It is a great pleasure to have him as a resource for our distributors, customers and prospects and he will soon be visiting the territory to share his knowledge and expertise among our distributors,” Albors says.
Perez comments about his new role, “As a member of the audio production crew in a broadcast environment, I truly understand the needs of our customers and changing situations on a TV station. Having served as a resource to the engineering department, I am also aware of the technical advantages and options that Studer brings to the distributors and end users in all aspects of the market. I look forward to visit the territory and being able to provide turnkey solutions to our distributors, partners and customers as well.”
