NEXO has promoted its UK sales manager of 10 years, Gareth Collyer, to the international position of sales and marketing director.
Collyer has a variety of experience across the pro sound industry, starting as a DJ and then graduating on to work at leading pro audio brands Bose and JBL. He has played a key role in establishing NEXO’s direct sales operation in the UK and has been instrumental in the company’s success in large-format sporting venues, including the Etihad Stadium for Manchester City FC, Wimbledon championship tennis, Croke Park in Dublin, and Headingley Stadium in Leeds.
“I’m pleased to be asked to take on this challenge,” said Collyer. “Today’s high-end sound reinforcement business is very different from the one I had when I started work with NEXO. Manufacturers have to assume more responsibility than ever before, in terms of software and processing solutions as well as engineering support for the design and implementation of increasingly sophisticated systems.
“We need to connect directly and meaningfully with our customers in every market, offering genuine two-way communication in order to improve our products and services. NEXO has a formidable global network of distribution partners, expert production companies and top AV consultants, and I look forward to working with them all and expanding my horizons.”
NEXO CEO Jean Mullor added: “The NEXO sales line-up has been transformed over the last few months. With Gareth at the helm as sales and marketing director, we are looking forward to presenting a new NEXO in the coming decade.”
