WIRELESS SYSTEMS has named JIM VAN WINKLE GM. At one time, VAN WINKLE was Dir./Regional Services for WIRELESS' MASQUE SOUND CORPORATE THEATER division.
"I enjoyed my initial association with MASQUE SOUND, and have maintained relationships with many of the people I worked with there," VAN WINKLE said. "When GEOFF SHEARING asked me to take the reins at PROFESSIONAL WIRELESS SYSTEMS it seemed like a perfect fit. PWS has been extremely active on the broadcast, live sound, corporate and theatrical fronts. The R&D department here has pioneered some exceptionally innovative new technology designed to accommodate the rapidly shifting RF environment and the on-going migration to digital. We've got a terrific team in place, and I'm very pleased to be working with them."
"JIM VAN WINKLE is one of the most well-rounded execs in the Pro Audio field," MASQUE SOUND co-principal GEOFF SHEARING remarked. "He has served successfully in virtually every capacity the industry has to offer. His leadership qualities and people skills are further enhanced by his hands-on technical expertise. We are fortunate to have him back with us."
