NEXO, a Yamaha Group Company, has welcomed Delphine Hannotin as Manager of its rapidly expanding Engineering Support Team. Widely respected throughout Europe for her work in live and broadcast sound mixing, Hannotin takes up her new post with the French professional sound system manufacturer.
Based at the company’s Plailly campus north-east of Paris, the NEXO Engineering Support Team is already highly active in supporting production services providers, integrators and consultants with system designs and commissioning for live events and fixed installations. Delphine will focus on delivering similarly world-class technical support for the Group’s AFC immersive sound solutions, from project design through to system calibration.
Drawing on 20 years of experience as a trainer at France’s Institut national de l’audiovisuel (INA), Delphine will also bring her commitment and know-how to the partnerships implemented by NEXO and its parent company Yamaha Corporation with leading universities and, of course, to the Group’s Audioversity training program.
Commenting on the appointment, NEXO Director of Engineering Support François Deffarges says ““In 2022, we are strengthening our team again. Our occasional collaborations with Delphine on festivals and other projects over the years have recently become much more frequent with many projects undertaken jointly with Yamaha, so her appointment at NEXO is a natural evolution. Delphine’s skills, energy and personality will be important assets for our user clients, and her arrival in our division will further strengthen the ties with Yamaha Corporation.”
“Having joined the Yamaha Group in 2019, I’m looking forward to working with the team at NEXO in a function that will combine a lot of contact with both customers and R&D teams” comments Delphine. “I’m passionate about sharing knowledge and providing support and advice, and the international dimension of my new role at NEXO is particularly exciting.”
