Renkus-Heinz has recruited Alberto Mantovani to the position of engineering manager.
Mantovani, a senior engineer with more than 30 years of expertise in the technology sector, began his career in Italy in the 1980s, developing complex embedded systems for factory automation.
He held high-level sales and technical marketing positions with Rockwell Semiconductors Systems in Europe before moving to California in 1997, where he has co-founded two high-tech enterprises.
"Alberto comes to Renkus-Heinz with a unique and diverse range of skills and expertise, from product development and product management to team leadership and business development," remarked Renkus-Heinz CTO Ralph Heinz. "He has quickly become an important member of the Renkus-Heinz team, and we look forward to a long and mutually successful relationship."
Mantovani added: "While a loudspeaker might seem a simple device to a casual end user, the multi-disciplinary technologies behind all Renkus-Heinz products make this a truly challenging and stimulating position. I'm very excited to be making an impact on the next generation of steerable sound."
Mantovani is based at the company's headquarters in Foothill Ranch, California.
