Outline appoints European sales manager23 June 2011
Former Turbosound staffer Chris Hinds (pictured) has joined the Italian loudspeaker manufacturer, which has also announced an expansion of its US subsidiary team.
Hinds joins Outline after a varied career that has included running a PA hire company and working for several years as European sales manager at Turbosound.
In a further development, existing Outline employee Tom Bensen – who has worked in pro-audio for 35 years – becomes senior vice-president and managing director for the company’s US subsidiary, Outline North America.
Outline expects the experience of Bensen and Hinds to benefit the growth in popularity of the new GTO Line Array speakers and iMode Intelligent Digital Loudspeaker Control Platform.
“We are very pleased to have found two exceptional people to move our company forward both in Europe and the US,” said Giorgio Biffi, Outline CEO. “Tom Bensen has always represented manufacturers that are on the cutting edge of technology. Tom brings with him support for expanded sales of Outline products, very strong relationships, and a fully developed rep network covering the entire United States. Chris Hinds is a very natural fit for us as well and his wide experience and many contacts throughout Europe are a valuable contribution to our company. We are pleased to have Tom with us these past two-and-a-half years, and to deepen our relationship as we fully vest him into our company; and we welcome Chris to the Outline family!”
