Following the company’s recent, successful launch into the live audio category led by the new EVO.Live digital mixing system, Fairlight has announced the appointment of widely experienced ICT senior executive Philip Belcher as chief executive officer.
After a 12-month recapitalization, restructure and product development period, Belcher has been tasked with leading the organization through its next growth phase. His experience as a business leader and senior executive includes serving as CEO/managing director of companies including Datacraft Australia, AWA, Storagetek ANZ, Radware ANZ, PMPartners group, and executive general manager of major divisions of ICT organizations including Cisco Asia Pacific and NEC Australia.
“Philip’s appointment is a major win for Fairlight and his experience and capabilities will be a huge asset to the company. His technical knowledge, sales and marketing expertise and industry experience dovetail perfectly into our plans for the business which will result in a clearer roadmap for our customers and partners globally” said KFT managing director Steven Kepper.
“I am delighted to accept the challenge of leading and growing the company which has such a rich history and iconic brand following. The business has an excellent core technology base and comprehensive product range with enormous near term and future potential. The opportunities to also grow its OEM, control surface and licensing revenues are most significant,” Belcher adds.
