Expansion to Countryman’s engineering department

Countryman has decided to expand its engineering department by adding two new design engineers to its team. Brian Hillenbrand and Benjamin Lacasse are responsible for mechanical and acoustic design, customer research and production support.

Hillenbrand previously worked as a key initiator and core manager at AudioCon 2018. ‘I have always loved music and sound,’ said Hillenbrand, ‘so the opportunity to contribute to a leading manufacturer like Countryman feels like a perfect fit. The process of designing and implementing transducers is a key ingredient in any microphone or loudspeaker system, so being directly involved in the creation of the company’s products is very rewarding to me.’

Lacasse has also commented about his previous experience and his new role at Countryman. ‘During my college years, I held intern positions in sales operations, corporate engineering and supply chain operations. These experiences afforded me a unique perspective into the areas that have significant impact on the development, design, and manufacturing process. I’ve always loved music and have been intrigued by the technology that many of these products employ, so the opportunity to join Countryman Associates’ engineering team is very rewarding.’

Chris Countryman, president of Countryman, also commented on the company’s new members, ‘Finding talented people who have the ability, the right attitude, and the passion to excel are significant challenges for any company. In both Hillenbrand and Lacasse, I feel we have expanded our team with two exceptional people whose personality, interests, and skillset uniquely match that of our organisation. Not only are these two gentlemen an important addition to our company now, they represent a commitment to the future of professional audio, and for that I am grateful. I have every confidence that Brian and Ben will make significant contributions to our company. All of us on the Countryman team welcome them aboard and wish them the best as we aim to take the company to the next level.’
