Lewis has worked in professional audio for more than 30 years, serving in a variety of different capacities ranging from manufacturer’s representative to live sound engineer with a focus on theatrical productions. Most recently, Lewis was the principal at design/build firm Conceptual Engineering, where he frequently specified and installed Meyer Sound equipment. Lewis played key roles in such high-profile Meyer Sound installations as the large-scale 5.1 surround system in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and the dual voice/music systems at Phoenix First Assembly of God in Phoenix, Ariz.
“As a long time proponent of self-powered loudspeakers, my path and Meyer Sound’s have naturally converged over the years,” Lewis says, “so it was a natural step for me to join the company. I look forward to contributing to Meyer Sound’s continued success.”
Lewis’s new assignment is the result of Meyer Sound’s steady and strong growth throughout the Western U.S. In order to maintain the close, personalized relationships the company has always maintained with its customers, Meyer Sound decided to split the West (previously covered by former Western Regional Sales Manager Jim Sides, now Managing Director of Meyer Sound’s German office) into northern and southern regions, each with its own sales manager. The Northwestern region will be handled by another new hire, Kurt Metzler.
“Dividing the western region into two parts ensures that the relationships we form and maintain with our customers and throughout the industry — which we have always felt are key to our success — can stay close as Meyer Sound continues to grow,” says Executive Vice President Helen Meyer. “We’ve worked with Will Lewis for years and know that he is knowledgeable, capable, and caring about his clients” needs. Will knows the region and he knows how we work. No one could be better to handle the Southwest for Meyer Sound and we are delighted to have him with us.”
