Manley Labs has announced that Matt Ward, former president of Universal Audio, has joined the company as a strategic advisor, where he will work directly with president EveAnna Manley on all aspects of Manley’s business to create strategic goals and a tactical plan to achieve them.
“We’re thrilled to have someone with Matt’s experience and expertise on board,” states EveAnna Manley. “He will help us devise a clear strategy to deal with the challenges Manley faces in the ever-changing audio marketplace.”
“EveAnna and I have been friends for years,” Ward adds, “and we’ve always conferred with each other about the challenges of growing a business so it was natural that when I became a consultant, my first phone call was to EveAnna.
“Manley is a revered brand with solid products and a stellar reputation for customer service so I’m excited to be joining the team.”
Prior to his 10 years in executive management at UA, Ward worked in product management for other prominent companies in the professional audio and music industries including Studer Revox, Otari, and E-mu Systems.
