PreSonus Names Patrick Faucher to CIO Post
December 3, 2012
PreSonus® has named Patrick Faucher to the newly created post of Chief Information Officer. In his new position, Faucher will oversee the streamlining and unification of the company’s IT infrastructure, focusing on end-user experience across the entire suite of PreSonus hardware, software, and online solutions, as well as the internal data and communication platforms.
Faucher was previously the CTO and co-founder of Nimbit® (now a part of the PreSonus family), where he was instrumental in creating the music industry’s most powerful direct-to-fan platform for musicians. Prior to founding Nimbit, Faucher was Technology Director at Stumpworld Systems, where he helped to pioneer some of the first e-commerce applications for bands such as Phish, Aerosmith, and the Rolling Stones.
In his new position, Faucher will focus on making PreSonus’ online information systems more consistent, simple, and engaging for customers, dealers, distributors, reps, and others who do business with the company.
“PreSonus is a global company, with teams in Hamburg, Hong Kong, Ireland, and Massachusetts, along with our main office in Baton Rouge. We want to better integrate our systems from all of these aspects of the company,” says PreSonus CEO Jim Mack. “Furthermore, with the integration of Nimbit, PreSonus has created an ecosystem of hardware, software, and services. Creating a streamlined communications environment within PreSonus is essential in today’s highly connected world, and I can’t think of anyone more qualified than Patrick to spearhead that integration. I am confident he will help us provide a better user experience for everyone who interacts with our information systems.”
“Now that Nimbit is part of the PreSonus family, I welcome this new challenge,” says Faucher. “The team here is an incredible group of industry innovators and leaders. I’m excited to be working with them to create an integrated ecosystem of solutions that has never been done. Together, we’re going to provide a great user experience for everyone who uses our systems.”
