Ben Olswang is no longer with Mackie
« on: March 12, 2019, 01:26:03 AM »
I do not know where his next place of employment will be, but it is sad to me that he is no longer with Mackie. 
Master Fader and the DL mixers were his baby.

I just wanted everyone here to know.

Sad, but I wish him well.  This stuff isn't easy to do right.  Got to wonder who will replace him.  You can't do quality programing on the cheap.

Well now I only have Matt Herrin to pick on and wish Ben well. We had a PM line going a while back and I kinda got the feeling he was prepping to make a move, just didn't know when.
When in doubt KISS

You'll find him as senior technical program manager at Amazon Lab126.

I wish him well.
Thanks for finding that WK!

Dan what I find sad is that after having been at Mackie since 2002, Greg Mackie was still running the company then, that not a single word was uttered by Mackie on Facebook. He left after Mackie's 30th Anniversary with guest Greg Mackie, almost like a non-event. I guess he wasn't waiting around for his gold watch.  :)

I think Mackie was not treating Ben well enough so he left, I don't blame him one bit.
And you are completely correct, why on God's green Earth didn't someone speak about his service to the company before his exit

AFAIK this is the only place you will find info not even his own website. Does this speak volumes about some of the people at MAckie!
