In response to the increasing demand for Constellation® acoustic systems around the world, Meyer Sound has added Mac Johnson and Ana Lorente to the Constellation team. Johnson has been named Constellation project manager, transferring from his prior position as education programs coordinator for the company. Ana Lorente, formerly with the projects department of Meyer Sound Spain, will now serve as Constellation project designer.
"Both Mac and Ana already have extensive experience with Constellation," states John McMahon, Meyer Sound's executive director, digital products.
