Orange County, CA | September, 2014 - Renkus-Heinz has announced the appointment of industry veteran Jim Bailey to a newly created product marketing position.
Bailey comes to Renkus-Heinz after serving as General Manager of Aphex, a manufacturer of professional audio processing hardware. His lengthy career in pro audio has also included product management positions at Avid and TASCAM, playing a major role in the development of numerous award-winning products at both companies. His many years as a successful recording engineer and studio owner served as his launching point into manufacturing, applying that experience in the development of new audio products.
In his new position, Bailey will fill a number of vital roles within the company, including the creation of technical documentation, educational videos, and software development. He will interface directly with both marketing and engineering.
"Jim's broad background across a wide range of technical and marketing disciplines is exactly what is needed at Renkus-Heinz," observes VP of Sales and Marketing Rik Kirby. "His ability to fulfill multiple roles is invaluable, and we are confident he will quickly become an indispensible member of the Renkus-Heinz team."
"Renkus-Heinz is one of the companies that started it all — they're part of the history of professional audio," adds Bailey. "More importantly, they are innovators whose products have had a major impact on loudspeaker design. I'm proud to be a part of such a great group of people, and looking forward to contributing to the next generation of Renkus-Heinz technology."
