Outline appointments Daniele Tebaldi as Chief Technology Officer
Italy – Outline Srl, leading European manufacturer of professional loudspeaker systems and FPGA-based signal processing solutions, has extended its organization with the addition of a strategic new role. Appointed as Outline’s new CTO, chief technology officer, Daniele Tebaldi will liaise with the company’s R&D team, sales and technical support crew and board of directors.
After embarking in the mid-80s on a successful career in Italy and Germany as a concert sound engineer with a keen ear for jazz, classical and contemporary music, ten years later Daniele conceived and directed Live Sound Education, one of the earliest and longest- running audio courses in Italy, hosted by the City of Modena, while continuing to work as a freelance copywriter, publicist and translator for the pro audio industry. This landed him a key role in the incorporation of a (now well-known) German professional loudspeaker manufacturer’s Italian subsidiary, which he directed for 25 years.
“In 1997 I attended Daniele’s education program in Modena, on the advice of my late father Guido Noselli, founder and technical guru of Outline,” says Outline’s marketing and communication manager Michele Noselli, a member of the board of directors. “Even 25 years later, I can still clearly see the reasons for which my father had vouched so strongly for Daniele’s teaching in my education, back then he had indeed found common ground to his vision there.”
“We’re genuinely committed to keeping Outline at the forefront of audio technology, which is where it’s been since its inception,” says Outline’s chief operating officer Stefano Noselli, also a member of the board of directors; “Daniele’s contribution as Outline’s CTO can greatly increase our capacity to take on the challenge of the most recent and profound changes in our industry, and build a technology roadmap that will turn tech trends into our source of inspiration and main enabler.”
“The world we used to know is in our rear-view mirror”, adds Giorgio Biffi, Outline’s CEO, chief sales officer and member of the board of directors. “We want to transition into new sales segments, and reach out to more markets, adding vision to the expertise we gained from our core competences. Daniele grew in a company that he joined when it was not Outline in terms of size and understands how technology can help to change the way a brand is perceived, it’s this expertise of his that we value most.”
“Outline is a stronghold of solid audio engineering, sparked by a degree of passion that is often lost in the big corporate world,” says Daniele Tebaldi of his new appointment. “I’ve found a most talented crew in each of Outline’s units and departments, members of which may have been with the company for well over 30 years, but still fearlessly use change as a highly powerful tool for crafting new products. I know this spirit, I’ve been there before and I’m glad to be part of the game here and call it my home today.”
