QSC Audio announced that Gerry Tschetter has been named as the company’s director of product management. Effective immediately, Tschetter will take charge of a new market-driven product management team dedicated to the task of product development and product marketing.
“In its most basic sense, Gerry’s role here will be to insure that we consistently deliver products that customers want and need,” CEO Barry Andrews said shortly after going public with news of the appointment. “We will be realigning some of our staff members so that he will have a powerful and effective group supporting his efforts. At this point, QSC has united some of the brightest engineering and product development minds in the business under one roof. If I’m confident of anything now, it’s that bigger things are on the horizon.”
No stranger to the world of producing runaway product hits, prior to accepting his new position with QSC, Tschetter spent eight years creating and launching a number of highly successful loudspeaker designs at JBL Professional. Prior to that, he logged 15 years with Yamaha in wide-ranging marketing, sales, and product engineering capacities.
“QSC can be as successful with loudspeakers and other product groups as it is with amplifiers,” Tschetter asserts. “To that end, we are going to be very aggressive in the realm of systems design. I’m looking forward to a long, fruitful relationship with everyone here. By building upon our established core strengths, we’ll enter a future where ideas beget technologies that are more profitable for all.”
