Microphone manufacturer Heil Sound has announced the appointment of Ash Levitt to the position of Head of Research and Business Development. In this role Levitt will oversee user and dealer research, new product development, as well as have direct interface with international distributors and US based dealers. He will be based at the company headquarters in Fairview Heights, Illinois.
Prior to joining Heil Sound full time, Levitt with an academic background in behavioral research and statistical analysis, conducted research on behavioral motivation. An avid fan of music and a musician, he has consulted with Heil Sound for over a decade. “It was a natural fit,” Levitt says of the transition to Heil. “I’ve known everyone at Heil Sound for years. And most people I have dealt with in the industry over the years through Heil probably were never aware that my other foot was in academic research. Now I’m bringing all of that experience to Heil full time. I’m excited to create value for the company with a data-driven approach, and to continue to build on what is already a great brand with the best microphones in the business.”
