L-Acoustics appoints new leaders in sales and business development team
L-Acoustics has recently appointed Marc Glattes as executive director of sales and business development.

In this role, Glattes will be responsible for driving the company’s global sales and business strategy while providing leadership, guidance, and resources to the global sales and sales operations team headed by Jacob Barfoed, the market intelligence function led by Stephane Ecalle, and the global business development team to which Scott Wakelin has been appointed global director.

Prior to joining L-Acoustics, Glattes held senior leadership positions at Daimler, Bain & Company and Sony, where he was member of the team that conceived, built, and launched PlayStation Vue.

Laurent Vaissié, CEO of L-Acoustics, remarked: "We are thrilled to welcome Marc Glattes to the L-Acoustics team. His extensive experience, collaborative leadership style, and strategic mindset make him the ideal candidate to lead our global sales and business development efforts and help us define L-Acoustics’ business roadmap for the next decade."

Heading up the new business development team and reporting to Marc, Scott Wakelin has been promoted to the position of global director of business development.

Having joined L-Acoustics in 2015 as regional sales manager, Wakelin led the development of the key hospitality vertical market, and now takes on the responsibility of leading the company’s global business development efforts across all vertical segments.

In his new role, he will be supported by business development directors Olivier Roure for sports, Florian Kunz for hospitality, Nick Fichte for home and yacht, and new hire Hugo Heathcote for nightclub vertical markets.

Wakelin concluded: "I am excited to join the dynamic team at L-Acoustics and to lead the charge in defining and steering the global business strategy. Together with my talented teams, we aim to be a tangible driver to the L-Acoustics mission by extending robust commercial support for our valued partners and clients around the world. With this strong and skilled team, we are poised to set new benchmarks in the industry."
