Allen & Heath has announced the appointment of R&D director, Rob Clark to the role of managing director, following the decision by longstanding company figurehead, Glenn Rogers, to pass on the reins to the next generation. Clark joined Allen & Heath as a digital R&D engineer in 1993 and has played a key role in the development of the company’s digital mixers, becoming R&D director in 2008. Rogers remains a director of the Audiotonix group, focusing on identifying market opportunities and helping to specify new products. Clark comments, “It’s an honor to take on this new challenge. Glenn has been a trusted friend and mentor for more than 20 years, and I know we can rely on his wise counsel in the future. It’s a fantastic time to move into this role; the product range has never been stronger, we’re blessed with an amazingly talented team, and we have the collective expertise of the Audiotonix group to draw upon. Together we will continue to grow the business with the passion and innovation that Glenn has always personified.” Rogers says, “Rob has a wealth of experience and the best team in the business behind him, so I know that Allen & Heath will continue to go from strength to strength under his leadership. I am excited to take up new challenges for the Audiotonix group and look forward to exploring the new ideas and technologies that will shape the next generation of mixers.” Allen & Heath Audiotonix Tagged with: Allen & Heath Announcements Audiotonix Business manufacturers · all topics Subscribe to Live Sound International Subscribe to Live Sound International magazine.
