Renkus-Heinz has expanded its APAC international application support team with the arrival of Tan Kheng Keong.
A Singapore national, Tan Kheng Keong (‘KK’) is technically trained and fluent in English, Chinese and Indonesian. He joins the company from Renkus-Heinz’s Singapore distributor, Electro-Acoustics Systems, where he was part of the technical team involved in the execution of several major projects including the new Singapore Supreme Court, National Institute of Education, Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studios Singapore. Before this he worked both as project and design engineer for an engineering company and an audio consultancy firm.
KK will be offering system design assistance and commissioning support, focusing on supporting the company’s Asia/Pacific Rim customers.
‘At EAS, my role was as an internal system consultant: design, commissioning and troubleshooting, all highly technical,’ he says. ‘My relationship with Renkus-Heinz goes back to when I was consulting more than 11 years ago. I was impressed with their loudspeakers and specified them on numerous projects, so I’m already familiar with the products and their ethos.
‘The future here is about moving more into digital technology and live sound, the new IC2 system, for example, is just right for concerts. Audio and IT are coming together and at Renkus-Heinz, convergence is happening quickly. For me, it’s natural, having been exposed to IT from a young age. I’m very excited about the future here.’
