Wenger CEO Chris Simpson Featured in Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal
Wenger President and CEO Chris Simpson was recently interviewed by writer Whitney Oachs for the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, to discuss Wenger’s leadership in the performing arts equipment and school music markets as well as its innovative Transcend Active Acoustic System.
Simpson was featured in the Business Journal’s “Strategies” section, which examines how companies are leveraging new tools and tactics to grow their businesses. In the article, Simpson discusses Wenger’s expansion of their performing arts relationships with high schools through its GearBoss athletic storage division as well as its push into digital acoustics technology with Transcend, which was co-developed with the leading audio company HARMAN. The article also touched on the first Transcend installation at Wartburg College in Iowa, with Director of Choral Activities Lee Nelson touting the system’s ability to transform the previously dry and difficult acoustics of the school’s Neumann Auditorium.
Simpson says, while Wenger’s largest project was J.R. Clancy’s complete stage rigging of a performance center in Singapore, he is most excited about the potential of the company’s newest product Transcend. He said this is just one of the new innovative products Wenger will develop for colleges and performing arts spaces around the world.
