Uli Behringer picks up Global Audio Industry Leader award

Head of MUSIC and BEHRINGER founder Uli Behringer has been named 2016’s Global Audio Industry Leader at the annual PALM Sound & Light Awards show.

He was recognised for “his visionary leadership and contribution to the professional audio industry by way of breakthrough technologies and products that have significantly contributed to the growth of the global pro-audio industry.”

"I am very humbled and immensely filled with honour and pride to be recognised by PALM India with this prestigious Global Audio Industry Leader Award,” said Behringer.

“When I think back to 1989, I had a very simple dream and that was to create great and affordable equipment for musicians. As a struggling engineering student and musician, playing in piano bars to make a living, I couldn’t afford the equipment to build my own recording studio."

Since founding BEHRINGER in 1989, he has built one of the largest and fastest growing pro audio companies in the world. The brand is now part of the umbrella organisation called MUSIC.

After heavily investing in BEHRINGER City, a wholly owned manufacturing plant in China, MUSIC is now preparing for the opening of its new facility, MUSIC City – a $100 million, 3 million square feet, fully automated manufacturing and innovation compound.

"When you celebrate success, you must always remember the people who helped you on the way as without these people, we wouldn’t achieve anything. I am extremely grateful for all the people who touched my life and hence I like to dedicate this award to our amazing 3,500 staff, our incredibly loyal customers, and our global sales partners whose unwavering support is truly appreciated," added Behringer.
