D.A.S. AUDIO USA APPOINTS HENAO TO SALES AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT

henao_hi.jpgMiami, FL – February 2009… D.A.S. Audio, a leading manufacturer of loudspeaker systems, digital signal processing, and power amplification for the live sound and installation markets, is pleased to announce the appointment of Carlos A. Henao to the position of Sales and Technical Support. The addition of Henao gives D.A.S. Audio’s US headquarters yet another highly qualified audio professional to assist customers with operational aspects of the company’s products while also helping prospective customers make the best product selections for their applications. His appointment took effect January 2009.

In his new position, Henao will serve as the company’s US regional sales account representative where he will identify sales opportunities, assist customers with product selection, and guide them through all aspects of the sales transaction. Similarly, he will assume an active role as an application specialist, conducting product demonstrations, responding to inquiries, as well as providing field application support to both touring sound and installation professionals.

Henao brings a wealth of experience to D.A.S. Audio USA. He has travelled extensively throughout Latin America and Europe, where he served as both FOH (front of house) and monitor engineer for a number of touring acts. For the past twenty years, Henao operated his own production company, Paradise Production Services, and was responsible for a number of high profile installations, including Miami, Florida’s Club Space, Club Level, and Prive, as well as the Jet Lounge in New York, NY. He also spent ten years as the production manager / audio engineer for Grace Jones, the well known Jamaican–American singer, model, and actress. In this capacity, Henao handled all aspects of Ms. Jones’ performances worldwide. Additionally, he held the title of programmer / audio technician at the Las Vegas Hilton, where he mixed production shows and bands as well as overseeing the installation, programming, tuning, and maintenance of the facility’s audio, lighting, video, and automation systems.

“I’m honored to be joining the D.A.S. Audio team,? states Henao. “D.A.S. is widely recognized as a leader in the professional audio space and the opportunity to contribute to the success of this company is exciting for me. D.A.S. is well entrenched in both the pro touring and installation markets and, with my background experience, I feel well equipped to step into the responsibilities of my new position. I look forward to the challenges this position presents.?

Jaime Villegas, D.A.S. Audio USA’s General Manager, is equally enthusiastic about Henao’s appointment. “Carlos brings an extensive pro audio background to his new position with D.A.S.,? said Villegas. “Carlos has worked in the live sound trenches, so he understands first-hand the issues that routinely confront live sound professionals. Similarly, the experience he gained from working at such prestigious resorts as the Las Vegas Hilton make him very well suited to interface with system integrators as they blend audio and video into today’s sophisticated multimedia presentation systems. All of us here at D.A.S. Audio USA are glad to have Carlos on board. I’m very confident he will make significant contributions to our company’s efforts.?
