Nexo CEO Jean MullorPLAILLY, France — NEXO enters 2015 with a new CEO, as Jean Mullor takes over the reins at the leading French loudspeaker manufacturer. Yoshi Tsugawa, who has guided the company for the past three and a half years, is returning to Japan, where he takes up new responsibilities as the General Manager for Band & Orchestra products in the MI & Audio Sales and Marketing Group of Yamaha Corporation.

New CEO Jean Mullor comes to NEXO from Yamaha Music Europe, where he has spent nearly 4 years as Managing Director of the French subsidiary, in charge of the domestic distribution of musical instruments, commercial audio products, audio video products and music schools network development.

Trained as a lawyer, Mullor brings with him a wealth of management experience. A lifelong passion for music has taken him from US petrochemical giant Mobil to Yamaha Corporation, joining the French branch in 1992. Over the years, he has augmented his legal expertise with HR, logistics, finance, sales and marketing departmental experience.

Speaking of his appointment, Mullor describes it as “a remarkable opportunity to join a company that has a 30-year record of technical achievement and an industry-leading reputation. With its flagship technology making inroads at the very top of the international market, and a slate of new products scheduled for release, these are exciting times for NEXO, and I’m looking forward to being part of its talented team.”
