Let's have a meet and greet
Now it’s your turn to get to know us. These are the people who you will be in touch with, sometimes daily. It all begins at the initial meeting. Then as the job progresses you will have the joy of speaking with, or seeing, all of these happy smiley folk.
Company Director, Rufus, founded Sound Environment in 2000 after twelve years’ experience working in the specialist high end audio industry.
The driving force behind his decision to establish his own company was a desire to improve the quality of the home environment and how people interact with the technology within it.
After 18 years in business the industry has changed massively with technology now being incorporated into all areas of modern life. The challenge nowadays is to provide systems that allow clients to take advantage of these significant changes, allowing them to be fully in control of their incoming media and all home electronic systems.
Rufus keeps a hi-end Hi Fi system in his home, enabling him to watch and listen to all previous forms of media of varying types and genres: from his extensive vinyl collection, to audio cassettes and DVD's. He likes nothing more than sitting down every so often and completely immersing himself in music at high volume! The feelings that music generate beat the rhythm to his life. “If music be the food of love, play on”...
Guilty pleasures: Steven Seagal films - or any cheesy action movie!
Something you didn’t know: He has a penchant for Italian cars, and is a committed MAMIL amateur racing cyclist.
Our newest member of the team, Sarah joined Sound Environment in November 2017 having worked in the Hedge Fund industry for over 13 years. Very methodical, she has a penchant for getting things in order - be it files, or systems and processes. And, as a part qualified accountant, she also loves working with numbers! The role of Office Manager brings all of these elements together perfectly, allowing her to have an oversight of the different aspects that make up the company, enabling each department to better co-ordinate. Such variety helps to keep each day different and interesting!
Sarah loves TV series box sets - with favourites such as Tin Star, Riviera, Big Little Lies and McMafia. Films too, but they have to be REALLY good to keep her awake! No chance of her falling asleep watching The Green Mile, Wolf of Wall Street, or The Long Kiss Goodnight...
Guilty pleasure: Sunshine – and lots of it!
Something you didn't know: Sarah is a Monopoly board flipper...

1975 – 2016
To those who knew Carmen on a professional level, you will know how much she brought to the company during the time she worked here. She is greatly missed by many. Her's was a wonderful life cut tragically short.
If any lesson can be drawn from it: Always wear a bike helmet if you are going to ride a bicycle, however short or local the journey may be...

Nick came into the custom install industry three years ago after a ten year stint in the construction industry. He joined Sound Environment in June 2012 as Lead Engineer. Nick is responsible for mechanical engineering and Lutron programming as well as general engineering.

Noel got into this industry over 10 years ago by accident, like a lot of installers. He wanted to be a studio engineer and eventually climb the ladder to become a music producer; music being his first love, or so he thought.
A chance encounter with an Islington job centre helped Noel on his way to realising his real passion for lifestyle technology. Noel is fascinated with inventions that are made for convenience as well as enjoyment stuff that allows people to operate things without getting out of your seat. Stuff that lets you live exactly how you want to.
Noel is proud to work with Sound Environment in delivering a quality lifestyle to those who appreciate the finer things in life.
He aims to design these lifestyle systems in the future and gain respect in the industry for innovate creations.
Noel is still passionate about music and maybe one day he’ll be listening to his music through plastered-in speakers while dimming the lights with his smart phone… ah the good life.
Guilty pleasure: Re-runs of "The Goonies".
Things you didn’t know: His eldest son is a Junior Councillor for Bromley.
Jakub started working for Sound Environment as a sub-contractor in 2016. With a degree in Electronic Engineering, Jakub started life as a service technician for Siemens in Poland, working in micro-electronics.

Jakub used to moonlight as a DJ in Progressive House in Poland and has a passion for high end audio.
