WEBSTER, NEW YORK – AUGUST 2015: Ashly Audio, U.S. manufacturer of famously reliable, flexible, and cost-effective DSPs, amplifiers, and user control systems, has hired Ed Czarnecki as its Applications Engineer. Czarnecki will report to Scott Leslie, Ashly’s executive vice president, and will wear many hats in his new position. Among his duties, Czarnecki will work with consultants, integrators, and distributors to provide information and training about Ashly products, both pre- and post-sale, as well as solutions to design challenges. He will convey the evolving needs of Ashly’s customers to the various divisions that maintain Ashly’s reputation for building affordable, reliable solutions. Czarnecki is based at Ashly’s headquarters in Webster, NY and will visit consultants, integrators and installation sites for training, consultation and assistance.

“Ed has been working on the integration side of A/V for over a decade,” said Leslie. “He has worked in every aspect of the industry. He has pulled wire, installed gear, configured, tested, tuned, programmed, serviced, bid, estimated, trained, and designed A/V systems. Ed knows the challenges integrators face because he has lived them, and he is uniquely poised to offer relevant, insightful assistance to Ashly’s customers. We’re really pleased to welcome him to our team.”

“Because of my experience on the integrator side of A/V, I feel that I understand the situations that integrators get into,” Czarnecki said. “I know that sometimes getting ‘the answer’ isn’t what you need when you’re in the field fighting, but rather hearing a fresh perspective that will help you move towards the solution. When I was an integrator, Ashly was always my line of choice. I always knew exactly what I was getting when I had Ashly products in my hands – good gear that is easily configured and installed and that’s backed by a wealth of knowledge at the factory. That’s exactly what an integrator needs, and I’m excited to be on the team that makes it a reality.”
