IAG, owner of Mission, Quad, Wharfedale, Castle and Audiolab, has appointed Peter Comeau as director of acoustic design.
Comeau has more than 30 years experience in the audio industry. He was co-founder and technical director of British loudspeaker manufacturer Heybrook, prior to joining Mission as director of acoustic design in 1999. He also acted as a consultant for flat speaker specialist NXT.
At IAG, Comeau will be responsible for all IAG's domestic audio brands, including Wharfedale, Mission, Quad, Castle and Audiolab.
He will largely be based in Asia, where IAG's factories are based, but will also work closely with IAG's UK facilities in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
