Lawo has established a UK CTO Office staffed with experts from all areas in pursuit of achieving the overall strategic goals of Lawo’s product and R&D organisations.

Axel Kern, Senior Director, Cloud and Infrastructure Solutions; Lucas Zwicker, Senior Director, Workflow & Integration; Henry Bourne, Senior Director, Experience & Design; and Jeremy Courtney, Senior Director CTO Office Coordination.‘The CTO Office will implement the execution of our customer-centric strategy across the organisation,’ explains Lawo CTO, Phil Myers. ‘Lawo is well aware that the delivery of products involving audio, video, networking and control infrastructure is no longer enough. Customers increasingly expect seamlessly integrated solutions rather than technically robust assemblies of hardware and software. Lawo customers have jobs to do, and we need to provide intuitive and efficient tools and workflows that span the full gamut of Lawo’s portfolio. Tight integration is the cornerstone of our strategy.

‘Lawo solutions need to be powerful, easy-to-use, quick to deploy, and technically aligned. To achieve this, we will ensure that all parts of the organization are in sync and work towards a common goal. The CTO Office is tasked with driving this convergence within the company.’

The CTO Office comprises Axel Kern, Senior Director, Cloud and Infrastructure Solutions; Lucas Zwicker, Senior Director, Workflow & Integration; Henry Bourne, Senior Director, Experience & Design; and Jeremy Courtney, Senior Director CTO Office Coordination.

Kern is responsible for cloud-based and infrastructure solutions across Lawo’s product landscape and for the further development of Home, Lawo’s core media infrastructure platform.

With more than 30 years’ experience in the broadcast and pro audio industry, Kern has spent the past 12 years at Lawo. With a MScEng in media technology, he has held various positions as a product manager in the broadcast sector. His international career includes positions at DHD Audio, Harman International Industries/Studer and Lawo.

Zwicker has the task of driving innovation by incubating new technologies, while exploring their applicability for current and future products. This especially involves harmonising workflows and ensuring interoperability across the Lawo portfolio.

Zwicker joined Lawo in 2014, having previously worked as a freelancer in the live sound and entertainment industry for several years. He holds a degree in event technology and a Bachelor of Engineering in electrical engineering and information technology from the University of Applied Sciences in Munich, Germany.

Bourne is responsible for human factors, user interface design and user experience across the Lawo portfolio. After freelance work in recording studios across the UK, Henry focused on broadcast for ten years at Calrec, gained an MSc in DSP in his spare time, developed web and mobile apps at Sky, and then learned a lot about listening while working on the 800 D4 series speakers at Bowers & Wilkins. He joined the Lawo team in 2019.

As Senior Director, Courtney is deputy chair of the CTO Office and oversees and facilitates all aspects of Lawo’s Product Management and R&D activities.

With 28 years of experience within broadcast engineering, he has held a variety of R&D, Product Management and Business Leadership roles, all with a strong focus on video and image processing. His career includes position at Snell & Wilcox, Snell Advanced Media and Grass Valley.
