L-Acoustics Names Timothy Zhou CEO of Asia Pacific Region, Opens Singapore Office
L-Acoustics has appointed industry veteran Timothy Zhou as CEO of L-Acoustics Asia Pacific and, this month, inaugurated a new regional office in Singapore. In addition to the creation of a new APAC hub, Zhou will also manage a growing team that is dedicated to serving local partners, as well as building awareness of the brand’s innovative technologies in key vertical markets, including those in residential and architectural applications.
To accompany Zhou in his mission, L-Acoustics has named two key team members to director roles. Alvin Koh has been named director of application project, APAC, supporting clients and projects across the region, while David Cooper takes on the director of sales, APAC role, and will relocate to Singapore to provide elevated support to clients. “In the coming years, we aim to serve customers and partners in the region more efficiently,” Zhou said. “We want to strengthen ties with our current network of partners in APAC, with the ultimate goal of becoming a hub that is an ideal base of support.”
The new regional office is located near Singapore’s central business district, close to local partners in the nearby Lavender and Kallang areas, but also centrally located for partners and clients across Southeast Asia. “We have established markets and seen remarkable brand growth in China, Korea, and Japan. Today, Southeast Asia represents one of the most dynamic regions of the world for L-Acoustics,” Zhou said. “The new office and expanded team will help us meet the demand for L-Acoustics’ signature range of products, to attain the highest levels of quality for our partners and clients, as well as create unforgettable experiences for audiences.”
“Establishing a hub in Singapore is the logical next step in L-Acoustics’ growing support and commitment to the APAC region, in line with our philosophy to think globally and act locally,” said Laurent Vaissié, CO of L-Acoustics. “Our local partners have helped us establish L-Acoustics as the leader in high performance audio, offering rider-friendly local options for global tours, exceptional sound for high-profile events and elevated experiences for fixed installation theaters, houses of worship, theme parks, and live music venues.”
