Ken Tankel, Gilbert Felix: Linear Acoustic

Accompanying the relocation of its headquarters to ‘a larger and better appointed facility a few miles north of its former location’, Linear Acoustic has appointed field application engineers for the US East Coast and Latin America.

Ken TankelBased near the new HQ, Ken Tankel will provide management and support to the East Coast of the US and Canada. Gilbert Felix, based in Los Angeles, has the same responsibilities for the Latin American territories.

Tankel brings a wealth of hands-on and management experience to Linear Acoustic customers, integrators, and dealers. He was most recently with WCAU-TV, an NBC O&O in Philadelphia, while also providing consulting, design, integration, and project management services to broadcast and other companies as the owner of Future Media Design, LLC. Previously, Tankel was General Manager of Dalet Digital Media Systems USA, manager of engineering support US for Pro-Bel, and East Coast director of technical operations, CBS Radio Division.

Born in Brazil, Felix speaks Portuguese and Spanish fluently and, after significantly growing sales in Latin America for Los Angeles-based broadcast solutions manufacturer DNF Controls, was promoted to the director of international sales. He started with DNF Controls in technical support seven years previously.

Gilbert Felix‘Latin America is just beginning to ramp up the conversion to digital TV, which makes it even more interesting for us to be there,’ Felix says. ‘It is the perfect time to introduce the territory to Linear Acoustic products; I see a lot of potential there. My goal is to establish the right distribution network, educate them, and provide them with the training and support needed to increase sales.’

Linear Acoustic has posted steadily increasing revenues over the past few years, with the Central Penn Business Journal placing it among the ‘Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies’ in Central Pennsylvania.

‘It’s great to be recognised for our growth, especially as we come up on our ten-year anniversary,’ said Tim Carroll, President and founder of Linear Acoustic. ‘Our people are exceptional and I’m proud to work with them.’
