Mathieu Pobeda has joined Active Audio and APG as the new R&D director for both companies. He will oversee the development of new products, with a strong emphasis on acoustics and transducers.

Pobeda’s career stretches back 20 years. For the last eight years, he has worked for Nexo, designing complete systems as an electroacoustic engineer. He has also recently completed a Master’s Degree in Business Unit Management at the ESSEC Business School in Paris.

‘Active Audio and APG’s vision – which was explained by CEO Régis Cazin – was very appealing to me,’ explained Pobeda. ‘I know there to be a lot of clever and talented people at the company; some of whom I have been in contact with for the last decade. From a personal point of view, the prospect of being able to use both my technical and my recently sanctioned management skills was a key factor in accepting a new challenge.’

Pobeda added that he doesn’t want to make big changes right away at Active Audio and APG. Instead, he wants to immerse himself in the companies’ philosophy and methodologies. ‘Nobody wants to drop straight into a company and start changing everything overnight, especially when the structure has been established for some time,’ he explained. ‘You need to make sure that the changes you want to implement are valid and will stand the test of time. I’m very confident that I’ll be backed up by the top management in that mission.

‘The market has undergone some changes in recent years, particularly with deep-pockets coming from other industries to grab historical audio activities and knowledge, so anything can happen in the next five years. In any case, I trust that the Active Audio / APG group will substantially grow over that period. We have the knowledge, interesting existing products and a lot more to come, though the main priority is to ensure we continue to move forward organically in every aspect of the business.’
