WAVNet to represent Prism Sound test products in US

In a move to promote sales and application support in the US, Prism Sound has appointed WAVNet as its latest representative in the region.

WAVNet owner and chief consultant Greg Groeper will be responsible for managing the Midwest/Great Lakes states of Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. This is a territory he is especially familiar with from 25 years of Audio Test and Measurement sales and support in the region.

The appointment sees Groeper team up once again with Doug Ordon, Prism Sound’s US National Sales representative for Test and Measurement. The pair worked together for several years in Chicago during the 1980s as AVC Systems and then as Douglas Ordon and Co. During that time, in addition to establishing an 80 per cent regional market share in Test and Measurement and Broadcast Automation, they helped pioneer the industry’s transition from tape based to random access digital editing. Groeper took over the business and re-organised it as WAVNet in 1992, when Ordon moved on to pursue new ventures.

Commenting on the opportunity to work with Ordon again, Groeper said: “Doug and I have been meaning to find the right venue to put our established track record of success to use for sometime. That track record based on extraordinary customer support and the fact that Prism Sound is in alignment with our philosophy is wonderful. This opportunity to work together again in Test and Measurement for Prism Sound is just what we’d hoped for."

Commenting on WAVNet’s appointment, Simon Woollard, Test and Measurement specialist at Prism Sound, commented: “This is an exciting development for Prism Sound, and I very much look forward to working with Greg as the latest member to join our team. I have known Greg for several years, having been introduced by Doug, and I have witnessed the rapport that he has with his clients and their respect for his expertise in the field of audio test and measurement. Greg brings many years of experience with him, and I am confident that he will be a real asset to our US test and measurement sales and support network.”

Groeper recently founded and manages the 1800-plus-member Linked-In Professional Group ‘atme’ (Audio Test & Measurement Engineering), an exclusive forum for audio professionals dedicated to the finer aspects of Audio Test & Measurement.
