L-ACOUSTICS US announced the appointment of Dan Palmer to the newly created position of sales manager.

Based in Oxnard, CA, Palmer will assist Paul Freudenberg, vice president of sales and marketing, in directing L-ACOUSTICS' US rep network as well as liaising with consultants, contractors, sound reinforcement companies and other customers with technical sales issues.

Prior to joining the company, Palmer was employed as director of business development for Platt Design Group in Sierra Madre. This followed four years spent with Otari in Canoga Park where he ultimately served as director of sales and marketing for North, Latin, and South America. Palmer also previously spent eight years with the Harman Consumer Group in Northridge, which culminated with his role as director of electronics engineering and product development.

"Dan's diverse experience with broadcast, touring and installation sound, from both the manufacturer and the consultant sides, made him the ideal candidate for this position," remarks Freudenberg. "Furthermore, his background in engineering and product development has endowed him with an in-depth knowledge of products and applications that will undoubtedly be instrumental in helping us achieve our ongoing growth and customer support goals."

"I'm really excited about the culture and unique intellectual property that we have at L-ACOUSTICS," Palmer says. "After going through the training program here, I have an even greater appreciation of this company's patents and technologies and what they can represent for our customers."
