Nexo, the French loudspeaker manufacturer, has appointed a new CEO. Jean Mullor will take over the role in the new year.
Yoshi Tsugawa, who has filled the role for the past three and a half years, is returning to Japan, where he will take up new responsibilities as the general manager for Band & Orchestra products in the MI & Audio Sales and Marketing Group of Yamaha Corporation.
New CEO Jean Mullor comes to Nexo from Yamaha Music Europe, where he has been the managing director of the French subsidiary for nearly four years. Mullor was in charge of the domestic distribution of musical instruments, commercial audio products, audio video products and music schools network development.
Mullor, originally trained as a lawyer, has gone from US petrochemical giant Mobil to Yamaha Corporation, where he joined the French branch in 1992.
Speaking of his appointment, Mullor described it as “a remarkable opportunity to join a company that has a 30-year record of technical achievement and an industry-leading reputation. With its flagship technology making inroads at the very top of the international market, and a slate of new products scheduled for release, these are exciting times for Nexo, and I’m looking forward to being part of its talented team."
