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 young 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 a management team that is
headed into the next 40 years of Prosound innovation and quality.’’
Justin Acres and Andre 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.
