Potters Bar, U.K. (January 28, 2011)--Soundcraft Studer has promoted Alan Wright to the role of quality and continuous improvement manager.
Previously U.K. R&D manager, Wright will be reporting directly to Andy Trott, vice president/general manager of Harman's Mixing and Microphones & Headphones Business Unit.
Trott says, "We pride ourselves on the levels of quality and ingenuity across our businesses, but we also have a mantra of continuously improving everything we do, however large or small that improvement might be. It is Alan's role to drive the business on all fronts of quality, ISO, process improvements and Green initiatives; we consider these to be business imperatives, hence why this function reports directly to me."
Wright joined Harman in 1995 with BSS Audio, then moved to Soundcraft under the same roof in Potters Bar. He points out, "During the past few years running Engineering Services, and latterly R&D here, we have made huge strides in production efficiencies, speed of new product introduction and quality levels. We regard quality, ISO and GreenEdge as absolute brand imperatives, and it's my job to ensure we continuously improve in every area of the business."
