Israel’s Kolot Ramim Sound & Light has made a significant investment in new E-Series loudspeakers from Adamson Systems Engineering, continuing a long partnership between the two companies. “We decided to invest in the E-Series package to follow our long-time clients to bigger venues while also supporting larger festivals and major international tours,” states Yossi Bar, the founder of Kolot Ramim and a partner of Break Systems, Adamson’s Israeli distributor. “Adamson’s rider acceptance has grown significantly and promoters in our market are looking for seasoned companies offering Adamson loudspeaker systems.” (Pictured here, left to right, are Koby Ben Moyall, Yossi Bar and Kfir Klein of Kolot Ramim with some of the new E-Series inventory.) Colin Beveridge, CEO of d&b Corporation since its inception in the mid 1990s, has transferred his responsibilities for d&b audiotechnik in the Americas to William Cornell, who is now serving as territory manager for the Americas as well as president and CEO of d&b audiotechnik U.S. Group. Cornell, who has been with d&b for 13 years, was previously responsible for sales and technical services in the U.S. Beveridge will remain onboard as senior strategic advisor for the management team in the Americas and company headquarters in Backnang, Germany. In addition, Jan Scheffels has moved into the newly created post of chief operating officer of d&b audiotechnik in the Americas, responsible for customer service, finance, human resources, IT, legal and buildings. He is based in Asheville, NC, reporting to Cornell. “We would like to say a big thank you to Colin for his groundbreaking work and many successes over the years,” says Group CEO Amnon Harman. “Under his responsibility d&b in North America has grown from an almost unknown German brand to one of the leading providers of professional audio solutions in the Americas. This market now stands for 30 percent of the revenue of d&b worldwide. I am convinced that our powerful team across the Americas will further develop this growth market under the leadership of William and Jan.” (Pictured above, left to right, are William Cornell, Colin Beveridge and Jan Scheffels.)
