Michael Mueller, Lawo VP Of Sales, Dies At 66
Michael Mueller, vice president of sales at Lawo North America, which designs and manufactures network, control, audio and video technology, died Sept. 26, after what the company said was “a brief, yet severe illness.” The company said he “brought a wealth of experience to his positions as U.S. sales and marketing manager, and later as vice president of sales.”
After his initial sales position with Audio Techniques of Stamford, Conn., in the mid to late 1980‘s, Mueller went on to assume positions with Scharff Weisberg Associates, Siemens Audio/AMS-Neve, Solid State Logic and Fairlight USA.
Prior to joining Lawo North America, he was VP, sales and marketing for MediaGear in Los Angeles.
In his capacity with Lawo North America, Mueller was responsible for the further development of the Lawo brand identity throughout the United States and was also charged with increasing sales of the company’s numerous products.
Michael joined the company in 2008 when the Lawo brand was hardly known in North America. The company said: “Michael’s incredible passion, hard work, dedication, positive attitude and pure likeability, are among the reasons that the company today enjoys such widespread success and reputation in this part of the world. Known for his witty sense of humor and kind-hearted personality, we will remember Michael as a key member of the global sales organization, skilled bass player in the Lawo band, a renowned face of the audio industry as a whole and a true gentleman and friend. He will be missed.”
