DiGiCo's US distributor, Group One Ltd., has appointed Sal "Chip" Sciacca to the post of Technical Support - DiGiCo. The announcement comes from Group One's Jack Kelly, to whom he reports.
As of January 12, Sciacca has joined the distributor's Farmingdale, NY office and will be providing national technical support for the digital console manufacturer in conjunction with DiGiCo US Technical Manager Taidus Vallandi.
Prior to joining the company, he most recently served as systems technician and audio engineer for the Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band, which tours with a pair of DiGiCo consoles (SD10 on FOH and SD8 for monitors). Sciacca has also spent many years based in the metro New York area working as a freelance audio engineer for SK Systems, Eastern Stage Productions (ESP) and KM Productions.
"We're very pleased to welcome Chip to both the Group One and DiGiCo families," says Kelly. "His 20-year career as a top systems tech, audio engineer and repair technician for a variety of companies has given him a solid troubleshooting background and our customers will certainly benefit from his experienced insight and assistance."
Sciacca, himself, adds, "DiGiCo has always been my first and favorite choice for digital consoles. They have fantastic audio quality, a feature set no other manufacturer can match and the flexibility to be easily configured to optimize workflow. I'm looking forward to delving even deeper into my DiGiCo knowledge!"
