UK-brand PMC has announced that Luke Smith will be joining the US sales team as sales manager New York.
Smith’s previous experiences include working as a musician, producer and engineer. Smith started his career when working for Clinton Recording Studios as an assistant engineer, before moving through various senior sales roles, as well as marketing and technical positions at Euphonix, Avid and Waves Audio. Smith also runs his own company, S.A.S Audio, which provides recording, mixing and production services to bands which are exclusively based in New York.
“With PMC I feel like I’m not just joining a company, I’m joining a family,” Smith continues: “There is a strong sense of community across the board at PMC, from the clients, to the sales and support team, to the many amazing individuals designing and building PMC’s incredible products. It is this, above all, that drew me to PMC. That and their mind-blowing loudspeakers, of course!”
Smith will be reporting to Maurice Patist, president of sales and marketing for PMC USA, to promote the brand and maintain PMC’s status as one of the leaders in speaker technology and reference monitoring for the creative pro audio industry. “Luke has a wealth of industry expertise and excellent contacts throughout the professional audio community, especially in New York where he is in great demand as a producer and engineer,” Patist said. “He understands the importance of high quality audio to recording professionals and dovetails perfectly with PMC’s philosophy. We are delighted that he is now part of the PMC family and are confident that his experience and knowledge will be very beneficial to our customers.”
Smith adds: “I look forward to both engaging and growing the PMC client base, as well as establishing new key partners that will aid our sales and support efforts in the US. Everyone at PMC US is committed to providing an unprecedented level of support to our client base and that is an ethos that can be difficult to find these days. I feel it’s a perfect time to be joining PMC.”
