Outline adds to international staff17 March 2011
The loudspeaker system manufacturer has announced the appointment of Chris Hinds (pictured) as its director of sales for EMEA.
A well-known figure in European pro-audio, Hinds joins Outline following some years as European sales manager at Turbosound.
His market experience is informed by a varied career that includes running a busy PA hire company, hands-on experience in manufacturing, and national brand management for a major UK distributor.
In addition to direct responsibility for European sales, Chris will be proactively developing the distributor network throughout the region.
Hinds commented: “This is a really exciting opportunity to work with a company who are genuinely innovative, very progressive and with a clear vision of the future. Obviously I’ve been aware of Outline for years, particularly because of their relationship with Britannia Row, but when I visited them I was just astounded. Their R&D and manufacturing technology, their knowledge and experience, and most of all their products are just so impressive. I’ve very proud to be joining the team.”
Giorgio Biffi, CEO of Outline, added: “Finding the right person is never easy but Chris feels like a very natural fit for us, and his wide experience and many contacts throughout Europe are a valuable contribution to our company. We welcome him to the Outline family!”
