Audio and lighting distributor Group One has appointed Tim Casey to its growing team of Calrec customer support technicians in the United States. According to the company, Casey is a skilled technician with 30 years of audio experience and a rich history with Calrec.
Casey started a long career with Studio Consultants, Inc. in 1996 when it was the first U.S. distributor for Calrec, firstly as a technical sales associate and then as a specialist.
“I remained a Calrec specialist for 22 years,” said Casey. “Realizing how significant IP was becoming in the professional audio industry, in 2017, I studied networking and cybersecurity at the University of Miami.” Casey earned certification from the University of Miami’s Cybersecurity program and has certifications in CompTIA Network+, Linux Essentials and Cisco Systems NetAcad.
Nick Hughes, customer support manager at Calrec, commented, “As IP deployments begin to dominate across broadcast audio, it’s serendipitous that Tim is part of Calrec again. He has long been the go-to expert for high profile events like the Super Bowl and Olympics, and he has the keen ability to help our customers navigate their way through the IP audio world as they fully embrace the benefits of Calrec technology.”
Casey added, “I’m hugely grateful that Calrec has a need that uses both my experience and recent work, and I’m very much enjoying the challenges of new technology with a lot of my colleagues from the past.”
