Shure Hires Prakash Moorut As Senior Director Of Spectrum/Regulatory Affairs
Shure is strengthening its commitment to the audio industry by hiring industry veteran Prakash Moorut as senior director of spectrum and regulatory affairs. Shure has been an advocate for the industry in the wireless spectrum arena for many years and said that bringing in a global head “will further enable the company to collaborate with regulators around the world on spectrum and regulatory policy.”
Moorut will be responsible for leading Shure’s efforts to advocate for audio professionals as it pertains to industry regulations. He will serve as Shure’s point person with regulators, lawmakers and industry associations as well as partnering with engineering and product management to create a regulatory roadmap that adheres to current and future policies.
Before coming to Shure, Moorut spent more than 10 years with Nokia, most recently serving as head of spectrum standardization, where he led the company’s efforts on global spectrum standardization and policy. He brings additional global regulatory experience from his previous role at Motorola for 14 years.
“Bringing a seasoned, global expert like Prakash onboard provides our team and our partners with an experienced voice who can help us navigate new spectrum policy proposals and legislation,” said Ahren Hartman, vice president of quality at Shure.
The company said that as wireless microphones continue to play an essential role in enabling productions across a wide swath of American life, culture and the economy, “new regulations will impact these areas without audio industry involvement. Beyond the traditional role of wireless microphones in broadcasting and film production, wireless microphones enable productions in a wide range of sectors including news reporting, theater, music, sports, worship, civic events, transportation infrastructure, and education. Moorut’s new role will help Shure continue to advocate for the people who rely on wireless microphones and related technologies.”
Moorut received his master’s degree in electrical engineering from Ecole Superieure D’Electricite (SUPELEC) in France.
