Terry Acres steps down as Chairman of Prosound
After starting his business in 1973, Terry Acres, the founder of Prosound and South African sound industry legend, has decided to move away from the pressures of business and to concentrate on his own interests, which include design, consultancy and training in presentation technologies.
Terry steps down as Chairman, Director and shareholder of South Africa’s most established sound, lighting and staging company.Says Acres ‘’having started the business at the ripe age of 23, and having achieved all my goals in the industry, it is time to utilise my depth of experience without the pressures of business.The company is in the hands of strong directors and management team headed into the next 40 years of Prosound innovation and quality.’’
Justin Acres and André Buys now fulfill roles as co-CEO, and Mark Malherbe continues in the vital role as Prosound’s Technical Director.
Terry will continue his involvement in staging and managing high-end music events, working on his mission to eliminate what he calls “so much noise and bling and poorly executed technical” in musical performance, instead of focusing on enhancing the music.
