JBL Taps Sager for Engineered Sound

Publish date:

JBL Professional has announced the appointment of Jon Sager to the position of Product Manager, Engineered Sound. In his new position, Sagers responsibilities will include product development of high end install loudspeakers, along with business development. He will report directly to Ted Leamy, JBL Professionals Director of Engineered Sound.

Sagers installed sound career began at Pro Media, Hercules, California, where he specialized in live performance system design and sales, primarily for performing arts venues and clubs in the San Francisco Bay Area. He went on to hold high-level market management and product development positions at Electro-Voice and Mark IV Audio, E-Vs then-parent company. Sager later joined Eastern Acoustic Works where he held the post of Director of Market Development and was instrumental in the successful development, introduction and acceptance of several loudspeaker products into the installation market. Jon comes to JBL from QSC Audio, where he was Loudspeaker Planner/Strategist.

Having been part of the pro audio world for a considerable period of time, Sager has witnessed first-hand the growth of an industry that continues to develop at a staggering pace. Todays systems are incredibly sophisticated, Sager said. With the evolution of materials which has improved loudspeaker components, the advent of DSP, and improved amplifier designs, systems today are capable of so much.

JBL is one of the leading pioneers in our industry and is responsible for many of the technological advancements currently available for a multitude of sound reinforcement applications. Harman was one of the first to recognize the importance of putting all of the elements of a sound system under a single corporate banner and providing a complete system solution to the marketplace. It is with great excitement and anticipation that I have accepted this challenging position at JBL Professional. I look forward to being a positive part in the continued leadership role JBL and the other Harman Pro Groups have established for our industry.

Ted Leamy commented Jon is great addition to the seasoned install team at JBL Professional. His experience and leadership will provide important guidance in the continued success of JBL and the Harman Pro Group in the growing installed sound business.
