Linear Acoustic Moves Headquarters, Adds Two Field Engineers to Staff
Linear Acoustic has moved its headquarters to a larger facility north of its former location in Lancaster, Pa. Linear Acoustic has also added two new field application engineers for the East Coast of the United States and for Latin America.
“It’s great to be recognized for our growth, especially as we come up on our 10-year anniversary,” said Tim Carroll, president and founder of Linear Acoustic. “Our people are exceptional and I’m proud to work with them.”
Linear Acoustic has also added two field application engineers to its staff. Based near the new headquarters, Ken Tankel will provide management and support to the East Coast of the U.S. and Canada. Gilbert Felix, based out of Los Angeles, has the same responsibilities for the Latin American territories.
Tankel was most recently with WCAU-TV, an NBC O&O in Philadelphia, while also providing consulting, design, integration, and project management services to broadcast and other companies as the owner of Future Media Design, LLC. Previously, Tankel was General Manager of Dalet Digital Media Systems USA, manager of engineering support U.S. for Pro-Bel, and East Coast director of technical operations, CBS Radio Division.
Born in Brazil, Felix speaks Portuguese and Spanish fluently and, after growing sales in Latin America for Los Angeles-based broadcast solutions manufacturer DNF Controls, was promoted to the director of international sales. He started with DNF Controls in technical support seven years previously.
“Latin America is just beginning to ramp up the conversion to digital TV, which makes it even more interesting for us to be there,” says Felix. “It is the perfect time to introduce the territory to Linear Acoustic products; I see a lot of potential there. My goal is to establish the right distribution network, educate them, and provide them with the training and support needed to increase sales.”
Linear Acoustic has posted steadily increasing revenues over the last few years. In September 2011, the Central Penn Business Journal honored Linear Acoustic as one of the “Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies” in Central Pennsylvania.
