Lawo has promoted Sam Schauland to Executive Vice President North America with overall responsibility for Lawo's business in this important market.

"I am extremely excited to take on this new responsibility," said Sam. "Lawo has grown tremendously in North America in the past years, thanks to a strong reputation for market-leading IP solutions combined with first-class expertise and support. I look forward to this new challenge of leading continued growth in what has become Lawo’s largest global market."

After joining Lawo 2015 as Technical Manager and in 2016 overseeing Lawo's first big IP video project for the European soccer tournament in France, Sam was appointed Technical Manager Americas in 2017 to coordinate the delivery of customer projects and the development of Lawo’s support infrastructure in North America and a rapidly growing Lawo operations team. Thanks to this experience, Sam was promoted in 2019 to the position of Senior Vice President Global Operations, leading Lawo's global team of project managers and engineers, optimizing processes and driving strategic initiatives.

"It all comes down to team effort, and I am proud to be part of a group of highly skilled individuals with an incredibly strong team spirit," Sam, who is also endowed with a doctorate in engineering, stated. "The North American organization will continue to benefit from Lawo's global initiatives and actions regarding strategic integration. At the same time, it will enjoy the autonomy required to provide speedy, agile and superior service to our North American customers," Sam confirmed.
