Countryman appoints chief engineer

Countryman Associates has appointed Eric Carmichel to the role of chief engineer with the task of defining feature sets for new products and being active in numerous aspects of the company’s technical operations.

His new role includes working with the mechanical design team to tune the acoustic properties of new microphones, testing prototype PCBs, assisting others on the engineering staff with design considerations, and occasionally addressing second tier technical support inquiries. ‘Because their manufacturing is in-house, they have the requisite tools and specialised equipment for rapidly prototyping novel audio products,’ commented Mr Carmichel. ‘I look forward to adding expertise to the R&D environment as well as Countryman’s acoustical measurements laboratory. I enjoy the theory, math, and electronics, but a hands-on, “build it and test it” approach to product development is definitely a catalyst for innovation.’

Mr Carmichel’s background includes physics, audio electronics, hearing science (mostly in areas such as consumer electronics), medical (cochlear implants, hearing aids), and electronic hearing protection devices.  He will be based at the company headquarters in California. Prior to his appointment, he was most recently principle engineer, acoustics and audiologics engineer for Doppler Labs. His other previous roles include field application engineer at Knowles Corporation while he was also the founder/engineering consultant for Cochlear Concepts.

‘Eric’s skills and experience couldn’t be better suited to the types of products we develop,’ added Chris Countryman, president of Countryman Associates. ‘His strength in acoustical and electronic design, product testing, invention and prototyping, as well as electronic and mechanical integration made him a terrific choice for our company. All of us at Countryman are pleased to have Eric onboard with us. I’m confident he will do well.’
