Following a transformation period to improve organisation, process and control under new managing director Dom Harter, Martin Audio has appointed Robin Dibble (pictured right) as product support engineer and Bradley Watson to the role of EMEA sales manager.
The new roles were established to support revitalised sales growth after the launch of CDD-LIVE! and now BlacklineX.
Harter says: “We are really building a future at Martin Audio, and with CDD-LIVE! shipping and BlacklineX just launched it is the right time to boost the team. Martin Audio’s core customers know Robin well, I couldn’t think of anyone better to further our credentials in the installation space given his knowledge, reputation and his understanding of Martin Audio products.
“As for Bradley, I’ve known him for many years; he knows Martin Audio well, and most importantly has worked throughout the installed sales channel, which adds skills and market understanding. I knew that he was the right candidate to take forward our position in EMEA.”
Dibble, who went to work at RaceTech for six months, says: “Having left Martin Audio earlier this year, I missed working with this great team of talented people, providing innovative solutions to our customers using our unique product range. When I was asked if I would be interested in returning to the fold, I jumped at the chance. It’s great to be back, I am looking forward to re-establishing contact with all of the Martin Audio family and getting my teeth into some really interesting projects worldwide.”
Watson (pictured) spent time working at Void Acoustics and other AV suppliers over the last six years and comments: “I left Martin Audio in 2010 after ten years. Naturally, I’ve always kept a fond eye on developments, including using its current portfolio of products on installation projects during my six years away. When presented with the opportunity to re-join, to work with the new team, and to work the territory I always wanted, it was a perfect scenario for me. I can’t wait to get going.”
Summing up, Harter says: “Martin Audio is investing in our future, and these two appointments will increase our capability in the marketplace and better serve our customers.”
