Prism Sound is pleased to announce that it has appointed WAVNet as its newest representative in the USA. WAVNet will help promote sales and provide application support and training for Prism Sound’s range of class-leading audio test and measurement instruments, including the revolutionary dScope Series III audio analyzer.
WAVNet’s 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 knows well from 25 years of Audio Test and Measurement sales and support in the region.
The appointment of WAVNet reunites Greg Groeper with Doug Ordon, Prism Sound's US National Sales Representative for Test and Measurement. The two worked together for many 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% regional market share in Test and Measurement and Broadcast Automation, they helped pioneer the audio industry’s transition from tape based to random access digital editing. In 1992, when Ordon moved on to a new assignment, Groeper took over the business and re-organized it as WAVNet.
Speaking of the opportunity to work together again, Greg 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 & Measurement specialist at Prism Sound, says: “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.”
Greg Groeper has a long history of top level technical support within his large customer base of R&D, Broadcast and Manufacturing Engineering customers. He has always insisted on handling applications engineering and system development at the local/regional level, allowing him to develop expert knowledge in the analysis of acoustics, transducers, electronics and production engineering.
Recently, Groeper founded and manages the 1800+ 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.
