Simon Druce will support the complete line of brands distributed by CUK Audio, including Audica Professional, Community, Clair Brothers Systems, DIS (Danish Interpretation Systems), Digigram, MTSi, Powersoft, Sabine, Symetrix and Work.
Druce (pictured) previously spent ten years at beyerdynamic and its subsequent incarnation, POLARaudio, as national sales manager. More recently, he was employed by Audio-Technica as UK sales manager, pro-audio and installation.
Commenting on the appointment, CUK Audio MD Stuart Thomson said: “We have grown rapidly during our early years and acquired distribution of an excellent range of advanced technology brands. For our next phase of growth we need to step up our customer support, and that’s where Simon’s experience expands our capabilities. Simon will work alongside Alan Lochhead but, unlike the usual geographical or market vertical split, we are introducing a more flexible approach based on personal relationships, applications and technical expertise, enabling our customers to work with the best person to meet their needs.”
Druce added: “I am excited to be joining CUK Audio; they are a dynamic young company that successfully combines teamwork with individual experience. Like many involved in distribution in this industry, I have watched over the last couple of years as they have grown and established one of the strongest portfolios of brands in the UK market today – brands that offer class-leading solutions across the corporate, commercial and leisure markets. To be joining them now is a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to working with the team.”
