AES names Alex Case as new president

Alex Case has been named as the new president of the Audio Engineering Society (AES).

An expert in aesthetics, perception, signal processing, electroacoustics and room acoustics for the creation and enjoyment of recorded music, Case brings a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience to the organisation.

Case’s background has served him well in his roles as an AES fellow and co-chair of the Membership Committee, also serving on the Education Committee (past chair) and the Technical Committee for Recording Technology and Practice.

In addition to his AES leadership, Case currently serves as an asssociate professor of Sound Recording Technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, while continuing to give invited lectures and master classes at universities and events around the world. He is a widely published author of over one hundred articles in industry journals and trade publications, as well as two books, and is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, for which he is a frequent presenter of papers and chair of special sessions.

“Alex Case has a diverse background in business, science, engineering and academia,” explained John Krivit, immediate past president of the society. “Alex is a great communicator. His skill set will serve the AES well over the next year, as it has already done with his committee and Board of Governors roles.”

“The greatest strength of the Audio Engineering Society is its membership,” remarked Case. “The diversity and depth of knowledge and professionalism in our membership is what makes the society unique. Serving that membership with opportunities to grow and thrive is the AES’s highest calling.”
