Port Coquitlam, BC (July 12, 2017)—iZ Technology, manufacturer of the legendary RADAR (Random Access Digital Audio Recorder) multitrack recording system, has a new owner and president after 25 years of business. Longstanding iZ president and owner Barry Henderson has now passed the torch to new president and owner Paul Clark.
In a statement, Clark explained the transition, noting “I joined the company close to two years ago—almost to the very day—but I've actually been associated with RADAR from the very beginning when I was the President of Creation Technologies Inc.
“After 25 years, Barry Henderson is stepping aside and leaving me in charge of this iconic line of pro audio equipment,” said Clark. “The good news for you is that I am surrounded by an incredible team of people who have been involved with RADAR from the very beginning as well. And they're responsible for more important things than I am—like product design, engineering, manufacturing, sales and technical support. We will continue to support our legacy products—found in thousands of studios around the world and used by major artists and producers including Max Martin, The Arcade Fire, Margo Price, The Black Keys, D'Angelo, Stevie Wonder, Daniel Lanois, U2, Matt Ross-Spang, and many others.
"We're also working diligently to bring new products to market that build on the heritage of RADAR while being more aligned with what musicians, producers and engineers are currently looking for. We thank Barry for his incredible passion and energy and wish him the very best in his future endeavors. If you have any questions or thoughts, we'd love to hear from you."
