Nexo names Jean Mullor as CEO

AUTHOR: Inavate

French loudspeaker manufacturer Nexo has appointed Jean Mullor as its CEO after its current head, Yoshi Tsugawa, announced he would return to Japan to take up a role within the Yamaha Corporation.

Tsugawa was CEO of Nexo for three and a half years and will now take the general manager position for Band & Orchestra products in the MI & Audio Sales and Marketing Group of Yamaha Corporation.

Mullor comes to Nexo from Yamaha Music Europe, where was managing director of its French subsidiary for nearly four years. This role saw him take charge of the domestic distribution of musical instruments, commercial audio products, audio video products and music schools network development.

With a background in law, it was Mullor’s passion for music that in 1992 saw him join Yamaha from petrochemical company Mobil.

Mullor described his new position as “a remarkable opportunity to join a company that has a 30-year record of technical achievement and an industry-leading reputation”.
