Powersoft announces US engineering appointment

Powersoft has appointed Gino Pellicano to the newly created position of applications engineer.

The position increases the company’s outreach and support capacities for its branded rackmount amplifiers as it looks to build on its engineering capabilities across multiple regions.

Pellicano brings deep and diverse industry knowledge to the new position, with years of experience as an A/V systems and acoustical consultant, design engineer and application specialist for companies including Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW), Acoustic Dimensions, and Technomedia Solutions. In his new role, Pellicano will report to US sales director Kurt Metzler.

As applications engineer, Pellicano will interface with consultants and integrators to raise awareness of Powersoft’s rackmount amplifiers, while expanding the network of Powersoft users in the US and Canada and widening the company’s reach in the touring and installed sound fields.

Pellicano holds a Master’s degree in Architectural Acoustics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and has worked as an acoustical consultant for SIA acoustics in New York City. He also spent part of his career as an acoustical consultant and design engineer, working with a client base heavily centred on Orlando’s theme parks and high end retail installations. Most recently, he worked for EAW as an applications specialist, a position he has held for the last two years.

“As a key driver of technological innovation in our industry, we are continuing to update our resources and outreach to our growing user base,” said US general manager Paul Freudenberg. “Gino is uniquely equipped to provide that support thanks to his direct industry experience not only from a manufacturer’s standpoint but also from the perspective of our integration partners.”

“Powersoft is a company that has been built on technological superiority and innovation and I’m honoured to be joining the team in this newly created role,” Pellicano added. “Having used Powersoft amplifiers extensively as a consultant and system designer for their outstanding sonic characteristics and unrivalled efficiency, I am eager to bring that real-world experience to our customers and help them leverage the unique performance benefits offered by Powersoft amplifiers."
