After a few years as a Project Manager in manufacturing microphones for a leading European manufacturer, Austrian Roman Perschon knew what was good. And what wasn't. He knew it was good to be able to develop at the highest technical level, to refine and experience, to see something realized from a sketch on a piece of paper and a vision in his mind. He knew it was good to inspire and organize people and bring a network to life that ensures smooth processing of ideas from the manufacturing stage to the user. And he knew that the anonymity and bureaucracy of corporations that often swallow up the best ideas wasn't good. Roman prefers a direct approach and this is why he wanted to create something of his own. He wanted to build microphones that do not swallow up the best ideas but have them built-in. The story continues with Roman quitting his job and packing his backpack. As he enjoys traveling around the world he started his quest looking for people who would develop, build and support his idea of high quality microphones. Roman found these people. They listened to him and found his vision so courageous that they wanted to work together with him. First and foremost was the young Chinese fellow, Ken Yang, who shared Roman's passion for traveling and ambitious ideas. Ken who had grown up in Sydney is the second generation owner of one of the largest Asian microphone manufacturing bases and he recognized the opportunities and agreed to make his know-how and one of the most modern production facilities in the world available. And so a brand was born out of a vision and a backpack trip – and Roman named it LEWITT.
