Williamson Joins Stagetec as VP of Broadcast Systems

Stagetec USA announced that it has appointed James Williamson as VP of Broadcast Systems. Based in Stagetec’s NY office, Williamson will be responsible for system sales and support across the product line with a main focus on broadcast.

Most recently James has provided independent Broadcast and A/V facility design, but he has also spent many years directing engineering teams in broadcasting and performance centers.

According to Williamson: “I’ve always have believed that well-engineered, high-quality products are the ruler which we use to gauge and feel that Stagetec’s product offering is second to none.  Their meticulous attention to detail, the tools available and the robustness of the products is very impressive.”

Throughout his career, Williamson has made significant contributions to product design in the field and currently sits as New York Section Chair of the Audio Engineering Society.

“No stranger to the professional audio market, James has a vast variety of experience that we feel will enable him to really excel at this position,” says President of Stagetec USA Rusty Waite. “Not scared to roll up his sleeves, he’s already hit the ground running by supporting the Stagetec installations at the NBA Finals for ESPN.”
