New York (February 9, 2007)–DiGiCo is making notable changes to its company in a move that it says “heralds a period of intense development for the company, as it gets set to continue its growth in the digital audio sector, and puts Bob Doyle, one of the best known figures of the audio industry, back at the sharp end of the business.”

The remainder of the management team comprises marketing director David Webster and technical director John Stadius.
“I’ve enjoyed my time as managing director,” said Doyle. “But now I want to get back to what I like best and what I’m best at, which is spending more time with distributors and customers. I’ll continue to assist with the company’s strategic thinking going forward, with my new role letting me contribute a more over arching approach, unshackled by the minutiae of routine operations.”
Gordon will oversee day-to-day administration and management responsibilities for both DiGiCo’s head office in Chessington and factory site in Glenrothes, Scotland, bringing his global market knowledge, product and sales skills to bear.
“2007 is set to be an amazing year,” said Gordon. “DiGiCo will continue to evolve as a company and grow in the marketplace. I am honored to take on the challenge of being managing director alongside the awesome team we have in place here.”
In addition to his current role, David Webster will support and guide the company’s manufacturing and technical operations, while John Stadius will have increased responsibility for, amongst other projects, the expansion of DiGiCo connectivity, including SDI and HDI I/O rack modules, which is planned for launch early in 2007.
“It’s essential that we have the cutting edge technology and managerial skills in place to continue to meet our customer’s expectations so that we remain the engineer’s choice,” concludes DiGiCo. “The team at DiGiCo is more than equal to the challenge and I am looking forward to my new role.”
