"Jan has been scaling down his activities over the past few years in order to very gradually approach life in retirement,“ said Udo Borgmann, CEO of Pan Acoustics, who hired the 69-year-old in 2010.

"When Udo and I introduced the Pan Beam series of active line source speakers to the world eleven years ago, we were an eight-man operation. To date, Pan Acoustics has grown to almost 30 employees, which is great,“ adds Leerschool, who now wants to devote his free time entirely to the passion of working with wood.

Pan Acoustics moved into the new building of the brand-new constructed company headquarters last year.

"The fact that we are, where we are now and operate as a reliable global player that keeps pace with the competition in terms of technology is also largely thanks to Jan,“ says CEO Borgmann. "Jan manages to think outside the box. With his humorous manner and tact, he has opened many doors for us.“

Johannes Kampert, who has headed up overall sales at Pan Acoustics since March 2021, will now direct all international sales activities for Pan Acoustics.
