Meet The Team – Georgi Hristov, Technical Manager, Gsl Professional

23 October

Georgi Hristov, Technical Manager at GSL Professional since 2011, is a well-known name in the AV Industry across the Middle East and is respected for his expertise in the field. A lesser-known fact about Georgi is that he made a pair of marble speakers back while he was still in school. He did so purely on an experimental basis and this was the start of his interest in the AV Industry.

After graduating from University with an Electrical Engineering degree in 1992, he shifted base from Bulgaria to South Africa. There, he started working with Pro Sound, one of the leading AV companies in the country. His job profile consisted of production, design and service for amplifiers and mixers.

Ever since, he’s worked for some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Altec Lansing, Midas, Pro media and, of course, the Harman Professional Group of audio brands.
His advice to the aspiring AV Engineers is to “Just enjoy your job as much as you can.”

Georgi has been heavily involved in numerous projects across the Middle East including the AV Design and Integration for WildWadi Water Park in Dubai in 2006 with his company Gamma Sound. He also provided AV Solutions to three stadiums in South Africa for the 2010 World Cup and was part of the Design, Installation & Commissioning of the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

In 2011, with all his technical expertise and experience, Georgi decided to join GSL Professional as the Technical Manager. He says that joining GSL gave him the ability to work on countless exciting projects in the region on behalf of a group of audio brands that he highly respects.
