Studer USA has greatly bolstered its sales and support efforts with the addition of two new employees, Jamie Dunn and Tibor Tamas, who come from the Studer factory in Regensdorf, Switzerland, and will now be based at the Harman campus in Northridge, CA.

Dunn has been with Studer for six years and leaves his position in Switzerland as sales director for North and South America. As a 'Tonmeister' graduate and former classical recording engineer, Dunn possesses both a technical and applications background. He will primarily be responsible for West Coast sales, but, having been the resident product expert for the new Vista 8, Dunn will also assist the rest of the Studer USA team in both support and sales.

Tamas is a Studer veteran having worked for the manufacturer for over 25 years. Regarded as one of the company's best and most knowledgeable support engineers, Tamas has spent the last year based in Montreal handling Studer support for both the US and Canada. He now heads up service and support for Studer USA on a full-time basis and will work alongside Martin Arthurs to provide a first-class support network.

"Jamie and Tibor are effectively bringing factory experience and care directly to our US customer base," says Studer president Bruno Hochstrasser. "Their presence in Northridge demonstrates the seriousness of our commitment to support the American market. We have already recently seen increased interest in our Vista series of digital mixing consoles and, with their assistance, we are confident that the range will soon achieve the same high level of acceptance in the States that it currently enjoys elsewhere around the globe."
