Kidderminster, UK (April 30, 2010)-David Cooper has announced that after 18 years at the forefront of Midas and Klark Teknik he has formed David Cooper Consulting.
”Fronting Midas' exceptional sales and marketing team for nearly 20 years has been an honour and a pleasure,” said Cooper, “but over the last few months I've had a strong desire to be in charge of my own destiny. At Midas, we've had some good times; we've had some great times, but if I don’t do it now, I never will.”
That said, Midas and Klark Teknik are the first clients of David Cooper Consulting, which will exclusively represent both brands in Asia.
“There will be speculation that my departure has something to do with the new owners of Midas and Klark Teknik, but this could not be further from the truth,” he said. “Midas and Klark Teknik are profitable, in extremely capable hands, have a stable vision for long term growth that remains true to the brand values and have already received considerable investment from the Music Group. I have nothing but optimism for the future success and growth of Midas and Klark Teknik business on a global basis.”
And with that, Cooper is now turning his focus to his namesake consulting firm: "I’m absolutely thrilled to be in a position to now offer my services to other manufacturers.” The company aims to provide focused, long term sales and brand management services to pro audio manufacturers, making use of his background in strategic brand management and global network of relationships.
John Oakley, Managing Director of Midas Klark Teknik says, "I am incredibly sad to see David leave the company after all he has done for our brands and his record speaks for itself. However in equal measure we are delighted to start using the services of David Cooper Consulting and fully expect a mutually beneficial, long term relationship."
