Brief history of the managing director, Mikal Dreggevik
Mikal has always been very interested in music and has in the past played a variety of musical instruments in a non-professional capacity. Music really matters to him and therefore it feels natural for him to continue working to achieve the ideal expressed in the Electrocompaniet slogan, “Closing the gap to the master” i.e. reproduce the music as close as possible to the original sound in the concert venue or the studio (the master tape). Having founded WestControl AS ten years ago, he also acts as manager of the development department. He now wants to use the resources we have in WestControl, together with several of the original designers from Electrocompaniet to produce the existing range and make new breakthrough Hi-Fi products. Our goal is to make Electrocompaniet a major supplier in the high-end Hi-Fi market.
