New Worldwide Sales Manager For Merging
Merging Technologies Announces Appointment Of Pierre Laporte
Switzerland, May 2010: Merging Technologies, makers of the Pyramix digital audio workstation and VCube video playback platform, are pleased to announce the appointment of Pierre Laporte to the position of Sales Manager, where he will be responsible for worldwide sales across the entire range of Merging products.
Laporte is no stranger to Merging's product line, having been Managing Director of the company's French distributor Diversity for 15 years. While there, he was instrumental in introducing the VCube video player to the French post-production market, overseeing the installation of 50 networked VCubes at one post facility alone (Dubbing Brothers in Paris). But the position with Merging's head office in Switzerland gives him wider responsibilities. "The challenge for me now, using my experience working for a distributor in one territory, is to build on Merging’s distributor network around the world, and establish more efficient sales channels and customer service," he explains.
Merging Technologies’ founder Claude Cellier comments: "We’re delighted Pierre has joined our team. He has been responsible for realising a number of very large projects over the past couple of years whilst working at Diversity, and has achieved very impressive sales numbers over the entire palette of Merging products, from small Native Pyramixes to large and complex networked Pyramix and VCube systems. I'm confident that his experience in creating sales opportunities for Merging Technologies products will encourage our international distributor network to be as successful as they can be at selling Merging to the world."
