NEXO has announced the appointment of Magali Deschamps as Engineering Support Manager with a focus on installed sound systems.
A graduate in Professional Sound at CNSMDP, the French National Conservatoire, Magali brings extensive experience working in both live and installed sound, most recently as a Planning Engineer for Skena Planungsgesellschaft mbH.
During eight years with the Heidelberg-based architecture, media, stage and event technology specialists, Magali assisted in upgrading and replacing AV systems in several prominent venues including the National Theater Mannheim, Staatstheater Darmstadt, Theater der Stadt Heidelberg, Freilichtbühne Ötigheim, University of Gießen and Stadthallen in various towns, working across all areas of the projects from tendering and financing through to system design and installation.
Looking forward to the new role at NEXO, Magali says “Although performing arts venues are my first love, I’m excited by the challenge of working in a broader spectrum of acoustic environments, each with their own particular requirements for an installed sound system. I’m also thrilled to soon be working in an international environment, becoming a part of a highly specialised though versatile team, and helping to reinforce relationships between NEXO and German-speaking partners.”
“The Engineering Support team ensures customers get the best returns on their investment in NEXO products, first by assisting in configuring the right system for the application and then by training operators and being on-site to optimise performance at the event or venue” comments ES Director François Deffarges. “A strong academic background combined with solid experience in sound engineering and consultancy makes Magali a perfect fit for the role and we’re delighted to welcome her to the team.”
A French speaker also fluent in German and English, Magali joins the NEXO team on September 1st.
