Fresh from the Athens Olympic Games’ Telmaco production team, Vangelis Ziakas has joined lighting manufacturer High End Systems Inc. as its new Southern European sales manager. Based in Athens, Ziakas’ territory includes Greece, Turkey, Italy, Serbia, Monaco, and more.

Ziakas has eight years of involvement in the light and sound industry. For the last three of those years, he was product manager of High End Systems equipment for Telmaco S.A. in Greece. "I am really interested in High End Systems’ digital lighting technology," says Ziakas, "as I believe that is a big revolution for the lighting industry. I will do my best to promote it, and I am certain that my previous experience as well as my knowledge will help."

High End Systems’ Tony Magana is handing over this territory to Ziakas. Magana will work out of the HES Europe office in London until November to ensure customers get a smooth transition and plenty of attention. Magana will then return to HES headquarters in Austin, TX to continue working with his customers in Latin America.
