Audio-Technica has announced the appointment of Richard Leadbitter to the role of project specification manager – a newly-created role, to which he moves from the company’s application, training and support department.
The new position reflects the growth of Audio-Technica and its distributed brands (Allen & Heath, Apart Audio and Artnovion) in the UK installation market over the last three years. Leadbitter – based at Audio-Technica’s Leeds office – will be offering site visits, project specification, sales and training to customers in the sector.
Logan Helps, Audio-Technica distributed brands manager commented: “I’m very pleased to welcome Richard to the new role in the business. He brings to it many years of experience, both in our ATS department and previously on the ‘other side’ of the counter at Pro Audio Centre, so is well-placed to deliver end-to-end solutions – from microphone to speakers and acoustic treatment – to our installation customers across the UK.”
